    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Apple in March 2017.

    Interview

    Contacted first just to get an updated resume.
    The second interview went into details about project and possible positions.

    I was told the recruiter would contact me back but it didn't happen.
    I think this is very unprofessional considering the company we're talking about.

    Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Apple (London, England (UK)) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Very intense. It seems that they look at who you are as a person. There are a number of stages, and the process is under NDA. However, the key thing I identified is that you simply need to be yourself. Showing off your sales figures or knowledge is only going to show character weakness. Stages progressively reduce the number of candidates, and there are a fair few. There are lots of opportunities to interact with other candidates. A fun but grilling process!

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Apple.

    Interview

    As it was an internal application, the process was straight forward and I was interviews just once with simple straight forward questions. I assume the setup of the interview was different for external applicants.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Apple (London, England (UK)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Went to a hiring event with around 20 people, got invited to next stage with only 2 others have just received my final interview email. Process is pretty relaxed and they look at your interaction with others rather than your product knowledge, as they can teach you that.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Apple (Cupertino, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    It was fast and straight forward. The hiring manager did not ask anything about my background and go directly to the technical questions. Very technical and very challenging. They just kept pushing you to think harder and harder and how well do you understand the fundamental ME principles
