    Interview Questions
    • A problem similar to rate/time/distance GMAT problem asked by another software architect. I did not expect this as I mostly prepared brain teasers and Java questions. I did not get this correct, but did provide some good mathematical explanation. I've solved similar problem and as with GMAT problems if you don't organize them, you'll never get it right.   Answer Question

    Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Santa Clara, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Santa Clara, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Apple in October 2008.

    Interview Details

    The interviewing process at Apple is excrutiatingly slow. However, I heard that once they made up their mind, the offer comes very fast. It took me about 3 weeks from the intial contact with the recruiter to personal interview. No phone calls from the hiring manager, it went straight to on-site interview with 3 different people. A word of advice I got from my contacts at Apple: loose your tie and jacket before the interview. Anything else goes,including T-shirt and blue jeans.
