    Interview

    It took 3 interviews but it was worth the wait. I appreciate the fact that you meet everyone in upper management they worked as an great group. Nothing negative to say about the company or the people that worked there.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Apple (Schaumburg, IL) in July 2012.

    Interview

    I applied to work a sales position-overall I would consider myself very knowledgeable about Apple products, having owned quite a few of them myself. I submitted my application via their website, and received an email back about a week and a half later. We scheduled an interview at the store the following week. The interview was fairly straightforward, asking about my interests, biggest accomplishments and failures, and knowledge about Apple products. The one question that surprised me asked about my hobbies and how I planned to develop them.

    Interview Questions

    • Asking about my hobbies and how I planned to develop them-a simple question, but I was caught off guard. Don't be caught off guard-treat the interview as a life interview, not a job interview.   Answer Question

    Applied online, interviewed by phone, then interviewed in a group setting. The interview seemed to be geared to in store workers, yet I had applied for leadership positions. The group was told that we would be contacted the next day regardless of the outcome, but no call ever came.

    Application

    The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Apple (San Diego, CA) in August 2010.

    Interview

    About 30 applicants were called in after applying on Apple.com/jobs. We were all greeted in a very friendly way by the Apple staff and they were extremely enthusiastic. We watched a couple videos about Apple and the Human Resources Manger told us more about Apple and her role and what they expect from us - also about each position. Then we got into group of 5 and answered questions about previous job experience, what we did in certain situations, and our involvement and contributions to our previous jobs. If you made that round, you were called back the following day or next day and had a 1:1 interview with two different people. One asked technical questions about computers, technology, etc., and the other was more of a behavioral interview asking what we'd do in certain situations.
