    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Apple (Houston, TX) in January 2017.

    Interview

    - 1 hour long video interview through Skype or Facetime. Very straight forward, lots of behavioral and technical questions. Need to do a little research about the company before the interview. Have to be prepared for technical questions. Few customer service related questions and personal experience in that field of work.

    Intern Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Apple (Houston, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I spoke with a recruiter at an expo event for a conference and was asked for an interview during the conference the next day. The first interview was behavioral and went very well. She scheduled me for a second technical interview later that day. I had very little time to prepare and would say this was my main downfall. The second interview was relatively easy, it was just whiteboard questions mostly on string parsing and other basic coding exercises. Towards the end of the interview it was clearly obvious that this interviewer was not so interested in me. Regardless, she told me they would be in touch. About a week later I got an email notifying me that I had been rejected.

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Apple (Houston, TX) in August 2016.

    Interview

    First interview was a group interview of 7 people at the Memorial City Mall. It went well, then got a phone call back within two days for an interview with managers in the highest store. I thought that went well, but didn't get another interview again. They went forward with other people.

    Applecare At Home Advisor Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Apple (Houston, TX) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I applied as a college advisor.

    After my application near the middle of the spring semester, I received an phone call a few months later informing me of an upcoming video interview, along with an email a few days later. I went through the interview, thought I bombed it, and decided to move on.

    One month later, out of the blue, I was informed via email that I passed their screening, and was given an offer (wage listed, non-negotiable). Since experience at a company such as Apple is highly prestigious, I accepted the job offer.

    My personal opinion of the interview process is that they try to see what type of person you are - it is easier to train a likable person to be good at tech support than to train a technologically skilled person how to care. They expect basic competency, but being able to relate and be considerate is so much more important.

    Interview

    The first interview is a group interview where the groupp is addressed as a whole by about 7 or 8 Apple reps. They show a few cult-inducing videos about how Apple is blah blah... Then they break the crowd into groups of 5 people to do social experiments- I mena have us take turns introducing ourselves to each other. Oh,I forgot- they had us introduce ourselves one by one to the whole group as well

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Apple (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    There was an event to give you an overview of the different positions and lighting rounds with managers. After managers would reach out to schedule an interview. If they think you're a good fit they'll call you to talk about salary and have you sign paper work.

    If the store you want to work at doesn't have the opening you are looking for, apply anyway and transfer later.

    Interview

    I had a group interview along with 3 others (we were all referred by an Apple employee). Somehow I ended up the last person to go for everyone question and found myself reiterating the same things that the other candidates were saying. "I would love to work for Apple, coming into the store is such an experience, etc."
