    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Apple (Cupertino, CA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    I re-contacted an Apple recruiter who contacted me in the past because I was looking for new opportunities. After sorting out the location, I got two phone interviews. I got quite basic C++ and algorithm questions. After those two interviews, I was invited for a round of interviews at the Cupertino office. I had 4-5 interviews back to back with no breaks. I really appreciated having to meet 2-3 engineers during each interview. It is actually a good ice breaker. The questions I got were difficult but quite manageable if you came prepared.

    Reasons for Declining

    The offer was quite good. That was the best offer I had regarding the numbers but I decided to go somewhere else because it was more interesting with regard to my career.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Apple.

    Interview

    Simple JavaScript questions, closures, event delegates, html/css. I asked some basic algorithm/design questions, but didn't really have to get into complexity and how to make it better.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    not much negotiation, I should have asked for bigger stock.
