    Data Scientist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    The interview process was very lengthy. I talked to 9 different people on the phone, presented a case study onsite and had 2 hours of lunch/interview on site. At the end, I did not hear from them for almost two weeks. I sent an email to follow up and after 3 days, the recruiter sent me "no thank you" email with no feedback. I asked for greater feedback as I had gone through almost 10 hours of interview with them. I never heard back. It is very disappointing to see the hiring process is a "one-way" road for Apple: when they need you, they keep calling you. When they don't, they disappear. Very unprofessional.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Apple (Austin, TX) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I had applied for a HW intern profile through the campus portal and got a call after more than a month. I had phone interviews with four people from the Signoff team. The interview questions were not difficult since they mostly focused on questions related to my prev work-ex. I was able to answer most of them, and was hopeful of getting an offer.

    Human Resources Helpline Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX

    Negative Experience
    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.

If you are happy to be a worker bee, or are motivated to try and move up, Apple can make it happen. You really feel apart of something bigger than yourself, and of course as it is Apple - something world renowned and cool. They have put a lot of thought and energy into keeping employees feeling valued as individuals, and the devent pay, benefits, facilities, HR support etc. support that. This was is best place I have ever worked in my 17 year career. Oh, and Café Macs (cafeteria) is the best in the world for staff meals. No joke, google it!!!” – Full Review
