    Mac Specialist (Apple Store) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Apple (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    First one was a large group interview. Truly have no idea how they knew who was who. It seems pretty obvious that you have to find a way to stand out, and show that you can be fun and friendly when speaking in front of others. Second interview was conducted by HR at the store.

    At-Home Advisor- Mandarin Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Apple (Pasadena, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview with first recruiter, shortly after would be another phone interview with a Mandarin speaker. If you passed, you will be interviewed by a second recruiter through webcam. Then you will be interviewed with the hiring managers through webcam. Both webcam interviews did role play questions. On my last webcam interview role play session, I wasn't prepared well. I forgot to congratulate the customer for his new purchase. I think they like you to connect with the customers first to establish a good relationship. Also to communicate with the customer of the commitment of solving their issues. All interviews happened in about a week. It's been a couple of weeks, I haven't heard anything back yet.
