    Intern Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Apple (Austin, TX) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I had applied for a HW intern profile through the campus portal and got a call after more than a month. I had phone interviews with four people from the Signoff team. The interview questions were not difficult since they mostly focused on questions related to my prev work-ex. I was able to answer most of them, and was hopeful of getting an offer.

    Interview Questions

    • - Resume related stuff - previous work ex, school projects, etc.
      - Scripting in skill, C++
      - Sorting algorithms, merge sort vs quick sort   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Apple (New York, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online through the Apple website and was invited to an interview a few days later. The first interview was in groups at their corporate office, which was pretty laid back, easy, and fun! By the end of the week, actually one day after the initial interview, I was invited to a second one. This was one-on-one at the actual store they were hiring for with the store manager (I believe). She was really nice and laid back so it felt very natural. A few days later I was invited to the final interview with two of the store leaders. It was a pretty lengthy process but if you're a people person (charismatic, outgoing, witty, etc.) and can easily think off of the top of your head, definitely apply. I should also mention that I had to reschedule the final interview due to a conflict, so that added about a week and a half to the process.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Apple (Seattle, WA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I went to a hiring event in Bellevue. There were about 40 people there. We divided out into groups and each managers would pass by each group. We were then provided an iPad with questions on there, and each of us had to pick a question then answered it.
    - I got a phone called a few days after the hiring event from the store I wanted to work at. They scheduled me to meet with a senior manager and store leader for an interview.
    - After the face to face interview, I got an email saying I would get a phone call from the Market Leader for the last step.
    - A week later I got an offer.
