    Recruiting Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Apple (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    I went through three interviews and spoke with a total of 6 different people throughout those interviews. The first two were by phone and the third was via FaceTime. The interviewers were polite and respectful, no issue there. An aspect that caught me by surprise is that I did expect more diversity in the organization. All 6 people I was interviewed by were white women, which is not an issue, but it is something I notice and did not expect (especially after extensively browsing the Apple Inclusion and Diversity page). The questions were not hard, its apparent they are looking for a cultural fit. The first two interviews were basic questions in handling scheduling and past experiences. The third interview was completely comprised of situational questions (i.e. What would you do if *insert scenario* happened?)

    Interview Questions

    • How do you manage scheduling multiple appointments with competing priorities?   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Apple (Austin, TX) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Process took about one month, first had a phone interview with a recruiter, then one with the hiring manager, then another with someone else from the collections team. First interview with hiring manager was really short, more of a description of what the job entailed. Second interview was much more thorough, where a team member took the time to get to know your experience and skill set.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you go about handling a conflict with a co-worker?   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Apple (Austin, TX) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Apple Store interview process, I've read, can take up to 5+ interviews. Begins with an hour-long, group activity of 8 candidates and 2 staff, which I describe below. We were told to come prepared with a copy of our resume. No bonus points for coming prepared with our own pen or paper for the group activity. At the end we were told to leave our resumes at our seats, along with our questionnaires, presumable so they could associate our faces/seating/questions with our resumes.

    Response (and rejection) is swift. They say 24-48 hour notification of advancement in the process or rejection by phone or email. I got my rejection email to my phone within the hour.

    Interview Questions

    • Group discussion: What working at Apple means to you.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Apple (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    Contacted via email and had phone interview, which was so easy that I thought there is something wrong. Anyways, asked me to visit team in Austin, TX. I went there for on-site interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • On site they were highly non-professional. They asked me to draw design schematics of my current employer. They do things hastily and try to create pressing environment so that you can tell them something. If you are going from big names like Mediatek, Samsung, Qualcomm or Broadcom then be careful, they are bunch of beginners who are trying to interview many people everyday so that they can get to know good design toplogies and try to copy over. This is just what I felt.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Apple (Austin, TX) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online through apple and was emailed the next day about being invited to a hiring event. I expected there to be at least 20-30 people but I was only 7 people. I got there 15 mins early just to know the people around you and the other talk to higher ups. But they didn't open the doors for us until 9:30 when we were suppose to start our interview at 9:15. We meet the store manager and another manager for the interview. It Felt very rushed , because they had like 39 people they were trying to train for the day, they showed us a video on retail stores and what not. then put us in pairs and asked us to introduce your partner on 1.your name 2.why apple 3.Guilty pleasure tv show. I tried to show my personality and asked questions and answered most questions they asked. they said that they would contact you within 24-48 hours and i just got the email on that they are moving to other people. :( im a little bit upset because I thought i showed my personality well and was personable through the experience. They acted like they didnt care about the interview at all, just made us do a quick group thing and 2 videos. It was kind of unprofessional and kind of made me feel off. I will of course talk to the store manager and ask what i can improve on. But it was a messy interview experience for me :/ bit unprofessional
