    Data Engineer (New Grad) Interview

    Average Interview

    Interview

    Had one technical phone interview, and didn't hear anything for three weeks. Then, my recruiter emailed me saying I got through to the next round, which was another technical phone interview. I thought I did really well (the interview questions themselves weren't difficult), but I never heard back from them again, even after sending a few follow-up emails. This was part of the Internet Services team. Highly rude and unprofessional.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Apple.

    Interview

    I went through 4 different job interviews and I did not get the job. The first interview was a group interview with at least 25 other people. The second interview was one-on-one with a lower ranking manager, then the last two were with the two store leads. Even though (I felt like) I nailed each interview and I went to four different interviews, I did not get the job. I know that Apple is allowed to have some level of elitism due to their brand, but four interviews is pretty ridiculous! Every time I tell someone about my trials to get a job with apple their jaws literally drop.
