Financial Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cupertino, CA

Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Apple (Cupertino, CA) in August 2016.

Interview

I applied online and was contacted about a month later for a phone interview focused on the achievements on my resume. Then, I was scheduled for an on-site interview a few days later. There were 6 one-on-one interviews during my on-site visit. Each session lasted about half an hour. The interviewers were courteous. Most questions were behavior related. Interviewers would also ask situational questions with real work experience examples from my past projects. One interviewer asked a few brain teaser type of questions. (i.e. how many traffic lights in US, etc.) One of the interviewer were late and they had to find a last minute substitute resulting the interview to be shortened to 10 minutes. Contrast to other reviews, no interviewer asked the "Why work at apple?" question.

After the on-site interview, I followed up once a week with email, but the recruiter just wouldn't give me a clear answer on my candidacy. 4 weeks later, I called the recruiter, learned that they've placed me as the back-up candidate, and would let me know if the position is filled. So I followed up 2 more weeks, but the recruiter wouldn't respond anymore. To avoid overly aggressive, only one follow-up email per week was sent out. As a stay home mom trying to get back to the work force, I was scrambling to get a babysitter so that I could attend the on-site interview. It would be appreciated if the recruiter could provide some feedback, even if it's just an rejection letter. Using the silence treatment to reject a candidate is just a really unprofessional practice.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Apple (Cupertino, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Many recruiter discussions over the course of one month. One 30 minute phone-screen. A series of 1-on-1 interviews over the course of one day. The interviews and interviewers were not well organized. All interviews (except for one) were laid back and pretty quick. There was very little time left for me to ask questions. All employees were pretty transparent about the issues the team was facing (and honestly I probably would've declined any offer). Had lunch with peers, but they didn't really add value to the process. All the employees seem to like like working for Apple (so glamorous), but did not seem to actually enjoy their jobs.

    Interview Questions

    • There were not a lot of typical or off-the-wall questions. Mostly a lot of specific questions about experience or resume points.   Answer Question

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Apple (Cupertino, CA).

    Interview

    The hiring process took a really long time. They could not figure out which team I should work with so they kept shopping me around to different places. The recruiter was very unresponsive and did not provide any updates. I had to reach out to her multiple times to ask about my status.

    Interview

    I applied online through my school's career center. I was contacted after submitting only a resume. They interviewed about 11 people at my school, the interviewer told me that only one or two would move on to the next round, which was a trip to the Apple. Fairly straightforward interview, mostly a general resume screen and background.

    Interview

    About a thirty minute interview. Asked to walk through my resume and questions and conversation naturally flowed from there. There were no technical finance questions. The questions were mainly behavioral and why you were interested in working for Apple.
