    Interview

    Applied to several postings online, and never heard back from any of them. Went to a career fair, spoke to several recruiters and actually got a phone call from one. We talked about procurement and I mentioned that I was definitely interested. She said she would send my information over to the hiring managers and again, never heard anything back..

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Apple (Austin, TX) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was nice. I had an initial phone screening, followed by a more thorough phone interview by the recruiting department. Then I had a phone interview with a department manager and existing Project Manager...the Department Manager having worked there since the days of the Apple Lisa. Next, I went to the Apple facility here in Austin and had a panel interview, which went very well. The final interview was with the manager of the department I would actually be serving and the interviewer was a little harder to communicate with. Ultimately, I was not offered the job, but was told by the recruiter that I was one of the two finalists for the job and encouraged to apply to other jobs at Apple.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Apple (Sunnyvale, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by an internal recruiter of theirs and then spoke to the hiring manager briefly over the phone (25min or so). I was then invited in for an in-person interview. For the on-site interview, I met with different 6 people, as well as a presentation of about 30min. The interviewers where from a diverse background (from a position and skill set perspective) and were all intelligent.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Apple (Cupertino, CA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Multiple interviews, multiple phone calls. It was an intimidating experience, but I am glad it is all over now. I would say for my next interview with apple I would prepare a bit more and also gain some valuable skills to make myself more marketable.

    Interview

    Expected questions for the most part except for only one person. This person came in with total attitude, not very polite, did not seem like he was prepared. He was asking questions which was clearly spelled out on my resume. I offered my resume to him and he refused to look.

    Interview Questions

    • The person mentioned above asked "why we should hire you". This question was not very difficult nor unexpected, but he was cutting you off EVERY TIME as soon as you try to speak (E.g "Don't tell me xxx, this is very simple", "Don't say yyyy, everybody say the same", "Don't tell me ZZZZ, we already have tons of them in the building", etc). As a consequence, you can never answer it.   Answer Question
