    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at FileMaker.

    Interview

    I made initial contact with Apple recruiters at a campus career fair. Then, I was contacted by Apple recruiter to set up an interview time. I was told I was interviewing with FileMaker, but I didn't know which team I was interviewing with until later. The phone interview consisted of two parts: non-technical and technical. The non-technical was conducted by the team manager, then he handed it off to one of the team's engineers for the technical portion.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at FileMaker (Santa Clara, CA) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Though this company is a subsidiary of Apple, and uses their hiring database, everything was done via email when I got in touch with the recruiter. Overall the process was fine, went in for an onsite interview, talked to a few people on the team I was interviewing for, very friendly. The problem was waiting for a response, I followed up later with an email to HR only to receive a concise 2 sentence rejection. I felt like that was pretty rude as they had probably made the decision much earlier than that. Very unprofessional HR and recruiting, I feel like they need to get organized.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at FileMaker (Santa Clara, CA) in March 2009.

    Interview

    Made an impression on the main recruiter. He called me the next day, asking if I was interested in interviewing. Interviewed later that week with a few people in the engineering department (none of which were my future manager). The interview was no biggie... they barely asked me any technical questions, and I really couldn't have answered any anyway. I was only a sophomore at the time and had never had a completely legitimate internship. Got hired a few days later.

    Interview Questions

    • I really don't think they even asked me any questions. We just kinda chatted.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I had no idea you could negotiate. I was just happy to get an internship.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at FileMaker (Cupertino, CA) in March 2009.

    Interview

    An overall positive experience. I had an initial phone screen followed by one in-person interview with the immediate team members. I was not invited back for a second round probably due to the fact that I really wasn't the best fit for their group and projects. Had I been invited back, I would have respectfully declined. I think a more in-depth phone screen might have brought out that I wasn't a good fit for their opening -- but I did enjoy going in for the interview. I was treated courteously, professionally, and respectfully by everyone I came into contact with. Interview results (whether I was moving to the next step or not) were communicated promptly by the internal recruiter via email. The interview itself consisted of a combination of behavioral questions and questions that arose naturally from the conversation, and I was given adequate opportunity to ask any questions as they occurred to me. I am not a fan of behavioral interview questions because they are contrived, canned, and often the interviewer has a response in mind that they want to hear from you. However, this group conducted them well and I felt that they weren't so much looking for a precise response from me on those questions as much as they were gauging how well I'd fit into the group by my responses.
