Inventory Specialist Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX

Application Details

I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Apple in August 2014.

Interview Details

Applied and was invited to attend a group interview. Around 70 people showed up for the group interview, and then roughly 10 were selected for interviews after the group interview. Had the first interview with the store leader within a few days, and the interview with the market leader later that day. Interview process was more of a conversation than a sit you down and grill you interview.

    I was contacted by Apple to schedule an interview time with them at a hotel. It was a large group interview and there was a presentation on Apple as a company. After that, we introduced ourselves and were asked some questions. The groups were then broken down into smaller groups and were asked questions there.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Apple in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, heard back in a week and was scheduled for an interview in NYC. The interview was a group interview, very laid back. Was told there will be 2 more interviews if you passed this step. It was just their effort in putting a face to the many resumes they get.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Apple in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview and hiring process was on the juvenile side. They had members from nine different retail stores. They broke us up into groups and we had to answer various questions to the members in our group from an ipad. Each group had an Apple Retail employee monitoring how we answered the questions.

    Interview Questions
    • Most difficult question is when you had to come up with a fun fact about yourself and tell the rest of the candidates. I'm sure they could all careless as to what you had to say about your personal life. The entire process felt very high school-ish. Next time I apply to Apple, I'm going to apply directly to Apple corporate.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Apple in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Four interviews! First a phone screening, second a group interview, third with a manager and final with the GM. Make sure your application essay is upbeat and very cheery. The people that read them probably screen a hundred an hour. Phone interview came from California, group interview is usually 4-6 people with tasks to see how much of a 'team player' you are. Third interview may be with another candidate, mine was. Final interview depends on the GM- mine had a superiority complex so she had an employee sit behind her taking notes.

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Apple.

    Interview Details

    Very slow. They like to take their time, even if the job you're interviewing for is crucial. Don't expect a fast response. You will talk to several people, usually beginning with a store manager, then a senior manager, then a store leader, then a market leader. Don't be afraid to use the same answers, as you'll get a lot of the same questions.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Apple in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    Theres 4 interviews in total.. first is group interview where they ask you basic retail questions and 1-2 general technology questions. Second interview is a 1 on 1 with a store manager after you observe and mingle with employees at the store for 30 minutes. Third is a group interview with 3 store leaders. Never got to the forth interview... honestly they asked more or less the same questions on all 3 interviews, just different people asking them. I'm not sure what they were looking for really since i figured I did well enough in the first two, stick to same answers for the rest of interviews and it should work but that wasn't the case, not for me anyway lol

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Apple in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    This was just my first interview. It seemed like it was rushed together and there were several other interviews happening at the same time as mine. There were basic questions about job experience and history. I was interviewed by one person while another took notes. They were both friendly. It was over in ten minutes and I was told I would get a call if there would be a second interview.
