Application Details

I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Apple in March 2009.

Interview Details

First, they contact you via email to tell you to go to a group meeting.

At the meeting, you are also asked to fill out a multipage form which they use to determine questions to ask the group (such as what was the most interesting experience they had in an Apple Store).

Then, they do a mass interview of about 20 people and ask them about their attitudes, knowledge, and psychological makeup.

Once that process is finished (about 3 hours), they tell you they will contact you later.

Then, they call you to tell you they would like a one-on-one meeting, at which they schedule several interviews at the same time, in the same room.

They then proceed to spend about an hour with you to ask you even more personal questions, and questions related to your resume.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Apple in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    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

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Apple in February 2009.

    Interview Details

    First we had to fill out a questionnaire on general information about Apple products and computers.

    Then, about 35 of us were seated in a room and asked to tell the recruiters why we think we would make a good employee for Apple and a fun fact about ourselves.

    Finally we had to do a roleplay scenario where once we were a customer and then an employee.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and received an email from HR for a phone interview. The HR rep went over my resume and asked in-depth questions about my experience. Then asked a number of situational questions like "How did you deal with a difficult coworker?" After that, she submitted me for a face-to-face.
    The face-to-face was with 2 people who asked more situational questions. The process was pretty easy and the interviewers were very friendly. Process is still going apparently. Next steps (if they happen) are a couple of phone interviews and an in-store experience.

    There wasn't anything special about the interview. Just know how to use a mac, don't freak out, and ask questions about the position. You never know what they might be looking for in an answer so always cover your bases.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Apple in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    There is a mask of playfulness, but the staff members are keeping a keen eye on all prospective employees at all times. One staff member held the focus; four or five others distributed themselves around the room. One of the staff members was very nervous; two of the others, terribly serious. Much of the experience was about seeing whether people "played well with others". They say you don't need to know much about Apple, but the thrust of their questions indicates otherwise. They put on the pressure early, bringing in a group of thirty and promptly saying that very few will survive to the next interview. There's a great deal of hush-hush corporate secrecy. Very velvet glove/steel fist, with much of the humour forced. You have to fit their mould.

    I applied online – interviewed at Apple.

    Interview Details

    Well the best part of this was I actualy got a phone call rather than an email and was asked for my available times for a certain day.

    I arrived and waited with this other guy also waiting to be interviewed. Turns out it was going to be a group interview. It was this very extroverted girl, the guy I befriended and I.

    We got interviewed by I believe the store mananger? And then later we met the hiring manager and he handles all the hiring process of all of Texas and some other states? Not too sure.

    It was a good experience, they asked everyone questions and they made me feel like it was ok to be not as extroverted. I would say the extroverted girl outshined the guy and I. So that could be why we didn't get hired, BUT they made a point to say, "we want a diverse staff" personality wise because their clients are diverse and a store would be chaotic if all the staff members were super hyper extroverts. So that made me feel like i had a chance! Too bad I didn't get a call back. But I would definitely apply again APPLE seems like a great company to work for.
