    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Apple in March 2009.

    Interview

    First, they contact you via email to tell you to go to a group meeting.

    At the meeting, you are also asked to fill out a multipage form which they use to determine questions to ask the group (such as what was the most interesting experience they had in an Apple Store).

    Then, they do a mass interview of about 20 people and ask them about their attitudes, knowledge, and psychological makeup.

    Once that process is finished (about 3 hours), they tell you they will contact you later.

    Then, they call you to tell you they would like a one-on-one meeting, at which they schedule several interviews at the same time, in the same room.

    They then proceed to spend about an hour with you to ask you even more personal questions, and questions related to your resume.

    It took 3 interviews but it was worth the wait. I appreciate the fact that you meet everyone in upper management they worked as an great group. Nothing negative to say about the company or the people that worked there.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Apple (Schaumburg, IL) in July 2012.

    Interview

    I applied to work a sales position-overall I would consider myself very knowledgeable about Apple products, having owned quite a few of them myself. I submitted my application via their website, and received an email back about a week and a half later. We scheduled an interview at the store the following week.

    The interview was fairly straightforward, asking about my interests, biggest accomplishments and failures, and knowledge about Apple products. The one question that surprised me asked about my hobbies and how I planned to develop them.

    Interview Questions

    • Asking about my hobbies and how I planned to develop them-a simple question, but I was caught off guard. Don't be caught off guard-treat the interview as a life interview, not a job interview.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Apple (Manchester, England (UK)) in February 2011.

    Interview

    They brought us to a fancy hotel where we had the interview in one of the function rooms, it was a group interview.

    Everyone except me and my 2 friends either had or was working towards a degree, there was no one to one interviews.

    We were shown lots of videos showcasing how amazing the apple brand was but none about the job or what it would actually entail, they also didn't mention anything about the actual job other then we'd be working on the shop floor.

    to even get recognized you had to brown nose the two interviewers immensely and act like Apple was the cure for everything.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Apple.

    Interview

    Well the best part of this was I actualy got a phone call rather than an email and was asked for my available times for a certain day.

    I arrived and waited with this other guy also waiting to be interviewed. Turns out it was going to be a group interview. It was this very extroverted girl, the guy I befriended and I.

    We got interviewed by I believe the store mananger? And then later we met the hiring manager and he handles all the hiring process of all of Texas and some other states? Not too sure.

    It was a good experience, they asked everyone questions and they made me feel like it was ok to be not as extroverted. I would say the extroverted girl outshined the guy and I. So that could be why we didn't get hired, BUT they made a point to say, "we want a diverse staff" personality wise because their clients are diverse and a store would be chaotic if all the staff members were super hyper extroverts. So that made me feel like i had a chance! Too bad I didn't get a call back. But I would definitely apply again APPLE seems like a great company to work for.
