    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Apple (Cupertino, CA) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Got a call from HR and was set up for an interview. The position was that of embedded software engineer. He did not seem interested at all from the beginning. Asked me to write a C code to reverse a string, another code to check if msb of a given number is 1. It went well overall. However there were few things which I did not know about like iOS SDK, objective C. I think that's why it was a reject for me.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you know obejctive C? although it was mentioned as a "plus" in job requirement.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Apple.

    Interview

    I applied for an SE position on a University Career Day. I got a 1-on-1 quick interview during the career day, and had many questions on my background, previous projects, experience, interests, and a couple of simple technical questions.

    A week later, I head back from Apple (email) about their interest in continuing the hiring process. 6 weeks later a recruiter emailed me expressing their interest in scheduling a phone interview with the Motion Team. I replied but never heard back since then (now, already 7 weeks). Nobody replied to my follow up emails. Apple recruiting team neither told me Yes, nor No (right now, I take it as No). This seems to me very unprofessional -- the worst interviewing experience I ever had.
