    Human Resources Helpline Systems Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Apple (Austin, TX) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Technical interviewer screening. In person meeting with hiring manager (first round). 3 individual in person meetings with hiring manager's peers and manager. 2 additional interviews with hiring manager's peers over the phone.

    The process was extraordinarily lengthy. I was a finalist of 2 people, and they went with the other, who was an internal candidate. I started the interview process in late July and just got the final "no" in mid october.

    The interviews were simple and more focused on the human aspect, rather than the skill set.

    Unfortunately, it seems as though the hiring manager could not make a decision with ease. I was told that this is the usual length of time for an apple interview, but this was absurd. In Austin (and the bay area for that matter), jobs for developers move very quick. If it weren't Apple, they would have a hard time keeping people in an interview process for 3 months.

    I am speculating, but Apple seems to have a very strict hiring process, in which they tell you very little. I was told many deadlines which were never met, and given vague answers as to why they were delayed. In reality, it was because they had offered someone else the job, and were waiting on his response. You may be told that it was because of travel conflicts, or that someone was out for a few days, but we both know that it doesn't take 4 weeks after the last interview to make a decision.

    Keep in mind, your interview is going to be very dependent on the org. Some developer interviews may be extremely involved and require programming challenges, while mine did not.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Apple (Austin, TX) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty simple. Since I applied for the front desk position at the fitness center I got asked what my knowledge is about the equipment and the facility. We also spoke about customer service and what the outcomes can be. They gave me a tour of the fitness facilities and then a couple of weeks passed until I had a phone interview with the wellness manager.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Apple (Austin, TX) in January 2016.

    Interview

    The contractor gave me a call and said that I would be great for this position and that it was for Apple. She originally took my resume and specified it for the company. Afterwards, I completed a questionnaire for different questions about leadership, prioritization, and how to work in a team. About a week after that I got a call that I had gotten the position. There was never any 1:1 with anyone from Apple - just a phone screening with the recruiter.
