    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Apple (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied through recommendation. I got an email to schedule a phone interview, which they actually had to reschedule a number of times but they were very polite about it. I didn't get an offer since I was familiar with solid mechanics, but hadn't taken a class on it yet. They asked many questions about it. Wasn't hard if you knew what you were talking about.
