    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Apple (Santa Monica, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    It was a pleasant and unique experience unlike other traditional interviewing processes. There were around 40 candidates in total. We started in the morning and the first two stages end around noon then we had interviews in the afternoon. The whole hiring process includes store tours, group projects and interviews.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Apple (Santa Monica, CA) in September 2012.

    Interview

    it was a group interview and it was actually fun. they had us learn about each other sufficiently to introduce each other to the entire group. This tested our listening skills and doubled as an ice breaker. We were given an overview about Apple and then we broke out into small groups to answer more detailed interview questions.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Apple (Santa Monica, CA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Group interview consists of getting to know you and your partner - with 2minute s of prep time. Then you will do your introductions in front of the rest of the 100 applicants and apple employees present.
    There is a slide show presentation with some Q&A. After which they will group you in 6 or 7 - your team will be assigned a random Apple product in which you will need to present/sell/ etc. Your brainstorming time is 5 minutes or less.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Apple (Santa Monica, CA) in September 2011.

    Interview

    I still cant believe this is a 4 step interview process for what at its core seems like a retail job. That being said, considering how many people go after these jobs, i fell like it is an accomplishment in itself to make it this far (I'm on the 3rd interview). On top of that, it's not like your selling clothes or pet supplies. Its freaking apple who posses the latest, greatest and most innovative technology so this really does get you up to work for them.
              The 1st interview consisted of a group ranging from about 40 to 50 people. you guys will watch a video and do some introductions and then break off into groups where you must come up with skits selling various apple products. Don't have too much fun as this is the part where they will be watching you and where you are supposed to make noticeable contributions to your groups skit.
              After they give you a call they invite you back for the next interview which is a much smaller group of about 5. Here they give the group questions collectively and they are expected to answer in no particular order which is them testing you how comfortable each person is taking the lead and speaking. Same deal afterward with the phone call. This is the step I am at and will be attending my 3rd interview in a couple of days. Hope all goes well.
