    Big Data Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cupertino, CA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Apple (Cupertino, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was fast. 1st HR call with the recruiter and 2 technical calls. Both went fine, Fast response. After that they invited me for an on-site interview ,2 weeks later I got on-site. From the beginning it felt that they already made a decision on not to hire me. None of the interviewer were interested in the answers I as responding with. Few interviewers were even making faces and checking their watch all the time. I guess either they found someone before I came on-site or they scrapped the position. My experience till on-site interview was really good, but the on-site interview day was horrible.

    Wireless Test In Location Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lafayette, IN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Apple (Lafayette, IN) in February 2017.

    Interview

    It was a very strange interview process. The manager of the team has the final say. 1st round was a screener with rudimentary questions about yourself, interests, passion.
    2nd round was almost the same and it also had about 30mins of coding in python. My recruiters screwed up. I was initially supposed to have a meeting with the manager, but my recruiter scheduled an interview on a date which I wasn't available. I think this affected my interview process. I manager gave my application the red signal because he was able to judge me solely on my resume. He never got to talk to me. Apple's interview process is really strange

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about yourself. What drives you, what excites you? Implement linked list class with basic functions in python. Knowledge about basic Unix commands like grep, cat echo.   1 Answer
