    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Apple in December 2016.

    Interview

    It was a phone Interview that was 30 minutes long and with the Reliability Engineering team lead. I applied through a university coop platform, and was contacted by HR via email to set up an interview time. The interviewer was nice, but he spoke to me while walking outside, so sometimes it was hard to hear him over the wind. I Know that there were 2 rounds, both technical.

    Specialist Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Apple (London, ON (Canada)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Applied mid-June. Didn't hear back until early September, where I got a call from the Apple Store in question.

    Interview 1 - I (and the others at this interview) seemed to skip the hiring event; my first interview was simply in the Apple Store itself. Hiring manager came up, introduced herself, and we had a fairly candid conversation as we passed an iPad around to collect our contact info.

    Afterwards, she asked a bunch of fairly standard interview questions, wanting to get to know us and our past work experience. Answering was freeform, I mostly tried to stay middle/end of the pack unless people were reluctant to answer, in which case I tried to show initiative.

    The interviewer in this case was friendly and very open, admitted that there wasn't specifically an opening and that we may not get a job offer for months even if we were deemed suitable for a role. Emailed her my availability, and got a call back a few days later for a phone interview.

    Interview 2 - Phone interview with the 2nd hiring manager. Longer since its 1-on-1, more focused on past work experience. Lasted ~30 minutes since it took place around half an hour before their store was set to open that weekend. She seemed a little more interested in my answers, maybe because it was a 1-on-1 and she had the time for it. Just try to over-exaggerate your emotions if you get a phone interview since your voice is more monotone when transmitted through the phone.

    Interview 3 - To come. Face-to-face interview with 2 managers tomorrow. Will make a follow-up post regarding how things go.

    From what I heard, individual interviews are not difficult, but they gradually find which candidate(s) are most suited to their personal preferences, so it can be brutal to get through several stages before being declined. Will try not to get my hopes up :P

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Apple (Edmonton, AB (Canada)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    40 people in 5 groups within different kinds of people like students, graduate, workers. As an international student, language is still the main problem. Apple needs people acting completely like their members. Just be very confident and energetic and speak a lot.

    Product Design Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Apple in September 2016.

    Interview

    15 minute interview with recruiter, followed by a 30 minute interview with hiring manger.

    They then gave me a 'design challenge', that they wanted me to complete in one week. I submitted a detailed design report, and received feedback that I should create a presentation. Upon creating the presentation, I was told that I didn't do well on the design challenge. I was given specific feedback on the design challenge (which areas I should give details for in my design). Surprisingly, ALL of those highlighted things were in my report!

    I don't think the hiring manager even read my report, because if they did, they would find that all of their highlighted areas were mentioned.

    I felt extremely demotivated, I felt that Apple did not really care for their employees. I felt they were super unprofessional as well, not even reading my submission fully.
