    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Apple (Schaumburg, IL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I submitted an application online, though I strongly believe that face to face contact sells far better than paper. I went in several times over the course of a week and introduced myself to managers. I was eventually interviewed by the regional manager, though he seemed less than enthusiastic to interview me. It seems audacity, in this case, was the wrong way to go as the interview was rushed and I never heard back from them.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Apple (Deer Park, IL) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online at Apple.com and got an email a few days later requesting to set up a phone interview. Phone interview was about a week later which lasted no more than 20 minutes. A week after phone interview was asked to set up an interview with two people from the store I was interviewing at. Had two options for dates and times, chose the earlier one which was about 2 weeks after the phone screen. A week after the second interview, got an email inviting me to the 3rd and final interview with the hiring manager. Was given two dates and chose the earlier one again. Attended the interview with hiring manager which lasted an hour. Was called a week later from one of the interviewers from the 2nd interview saying I was not chosen for the position. The entire process took more than 4 weeks.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Apple (Chicago, IL) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted by a recruiter the following business day. She help me set up a meeting time with leaders from the store. I had my first interview and was told I would get a response within 72 hours if I will be taking the next steps. I received an email the next day to confirm and set up at time for the second interview. After the second interview I was told once again I would hear back within 72 hours. I waited and waited checking my email nonstop but did not receive any word back. FInally after about 5 days I received a phone call asking about how did I think my interview went and that they would like to set up a third and final interview. We set up a date and then I met with another manager. It was a Friday and I asked what the next steps would be and was told I would hear back on Wednesday. Wednesday rolls around and no email nor phone call. I'm freaking out but I give it some time. Thursday still no word. So I called on Friday afternoon and left a message with my number. An hour or so later I receive a phone call from two people that I had not been introduced to before. They asked how did I think the interviews went. I said I think they went well I had a great time and they said well we also heard they went well so I would like to offer you a part time job and so and so. I was ecstatic. The whole process took about 3-4 weeks.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Apple (Chicago, IL) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and had a referral from a friend. About 3 weeks after I applied, I was asked to come in for a group interview. The interview was pretty casual and the questions asked were mostly basic things like "What is your favorite app?" to "What scares you the most about working at Apple?". I was called back for a second interview about a week later. The second interview was with different store managers and the questions were more direct about your former work experience. For example, I was asked "Talk about a time you've given negative feedback and a time you were given negative feedback.". I was not called back for a third interview, but the good news about Apple is that they call you even if it's a no. Very important question asked during both interviews was "Why Apple?"

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Apple (North Aurora, IL) in August 2015.

    Interview

    It's not a typical interview. It's done in a group setting. They had us interview the person sitting next to us and pitch them for employment. Let's just say my interviewer didn't care to ask me any questions.
