I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Apple (South Windsor, CT) in Aug 2018

Interview

I was called in for a group interview with 3 other candidates. We sat around a table in the back of the store with customers milling around the entire time. There were 2 people conducting the interview. We were asked basic questions like, "tell us about yourself", and then they pulled out an iPad and had us answer random questions. One of my questions was, "tell us about a time when you turned a negative experience into a positive one". The interview went pretty well and they said someone would contact us within 48 hours to let us know if we'd be moving on. Almost a week later someone called me back. She apologized for the delay and said she had a wedding to go to. She scheduled a second interview for the next day. Second interview went great! I met one on one with a manager. Once again I was asked to describe myself and then he asked me a lot of questions that were more "personality" based than "work experience" based. Again, I left that interview feeling great. Within 2 hours I was called to schedule a third interview for the following week. Third interview, didn't go so well. The person interviewing me showed up late for the interview and when she found out I was waiting for her she gave me a dirty look. She had me sit by the front windows of the store, again, with customers milling around, and asked me to tell her about myself. It was during this point in the conversation that she asked me, "How old are you?" I was a little taken aback by this question because I didn't think you were allowed to ask that in an interview, but I answered her anyway and continued with the interview. I left the interview scratching my head because the first two interviews went so well, and this one was just odd. I was called 2 days later and told they were pursuing other candidates.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Apple (United Kingdom) in Aug 2018

Interview

The whole hiring process took a couple of weeks. Initially had a phone call from someone at Apple store inviting me to an interview, which I agreed to attend. The first stage was a group activity, where all the prospects meet and have a group interview. This was a relaxed affair, come as you are they say. The second stage was another interview with the store management and three of us in the room. Again another relaxed interview just finding out who you are as a person, asking somewhat personal but not invading questions. The third interview was at the store which I met more senior management and formally congratulating us on reaching this far but explaining that it’s not an offer. About a day or two later, got a call from senior management looking to hire me and explained the terms and salary and to begin process of recruitment. All in all a very smooth transition into a new job

Interview

The vibe was very cult-like and felt as if they expected you to pledge your soul to Apple. This was a group interview including me and 3 other applicants. We sat next to each other in the corner of the Apple Store and were asked to introduce ourselves to the applicants sitting next to us, and remember what they said, and repeat what they said about themselves to the rest of the group. Then, we were given questions in different orders, and sometimes at random, to increase pressure. Not all of us were asked the same questions. Some of the questions were difficult and required a lot of time to think of an answer. Many of the other applicants gushed about how they wake up every morning and think of using Apple products and how they just love the feeling of opening an Apple product so much. The manager also tried to sell us on the new iPhone X.

Interview Questions
