    Technical Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Woodmere, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Apple (Woodmere, OH) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Two months, 5 interviews. It's a good thing I didn't need the job to start with. For a company who boasts the fastest computing technology in history, they are the slowest moving bureaucracy I've ever worked for, including the federal government.

    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Apple (Dallas, TX) in July 2016.

    Interview

    - Many, many interviews.
    - You will never get hired straight on as a genius. First technical specialist, then expert, then genius.
    - Depending on turn-over you will look at 1-2 years between each role

    Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Apple in July 2016.

    Interview

    Went through three interviews. All pretty basic and nothing too crazy. They were really looking at you personality and your love for the company. I didn't have any technical questions like "What is RAM? Or what is a processor?". Just really be you and be prepared to do a few group interviews and a 1:1 with a market leader. Obviously, not all interviews will go the same but that's the beauty of it. If you love the product and are approachable, you will more than likely get an offer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Apple (Minneapolis, MN) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Large group interview, breakout sessions, role-playing, everybody was very cutthroat and competitive. Employees were stone cold and not super receptive to feedback, but seemed to warm up to people who were extremely talkative. The whole process was amazing but extremely intimidating.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Apple (Cupertino, CA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    First I went through a phone screen with the hiring manager, quite detailed technical interview that is quite standard in the industry as a first scree. Then it was followed by an on site with a panel of four from a group different from the one I would have worked for

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were in general on things I worked on, but the people interviewed me had very hard time understanding the concepts. Looked like the experience they had in design was extremely marginal and limited. One interviewer asked me a question so dumb, almost an insult to intelligence, that could have so many answers that was really meaningless. It was not even to upset me and see how I reacted; it was clearly a cocky young and clearly inexperienced designer that since he works at apple he thinks that anything that comes out his mouth is gold. But it was something else... anyways, you need only one out of eight in the panel to be not in favor in the panel and you are out. Guess what happened to me ... and thanks god because I could have not work shoulder to shoulder with people like that.   1 Answer
