    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Apple (New York, NY) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Basic group interview. Around 15 people in a conference room. Apple recruiting reps have you intro yourself out loud in front of the group. Then they show a video about diversity and potential at Apple. Then they make everyone talk about a scenario where they went above and beyond for a customer. The groups are then separated into groups of 4-5 and asked to role play as customers with problems that walk into an Apple store.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Apple (Manchester, NH) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Very casual. I wore business casual, and I was the best dressed in the room. There were two panels, and we rotated between rooms. I honestly felt like I wasn't hipster enough for the role. I wore what many would consider to be standard interview clothes, but even the market leadership were wearing jeans. The worst part was they would not even bother to provide interview feedback. So, essentially, I wasted my time.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Apple (Austin, TX) in January 2013.

    Interview

    I was a bit taken aback at how casual the employee attire was. A little too casual in fact. I'm not sure that employees should be wearing jean shorts and sneakers but, I digress. I was greeted by senior management within ten minutes of arriving. The male and female interviewers introduced themselves and directed me outside where we sat at a picnic table of sorts.

    The interview was straight-forward enough but what I was thrown off by was how rigid and stand-offish the female senior manager was. When answering her questions, she was unable to look me in the eye while we conversed. From her body language I discerned that she just wanted to get the interview over with and move on. The male interviewer, however, was very pleasant, friendly and attentive.

    The kicker was when she asked me if I had any further questions in which I asked, "so what is the average work-week like, hourly?" Her face became rigid and she answered with, "we are not here to talk about salaries, benefits or work hours. We are trying to figure out whether you can lead a team or not." At that point I knew the interview was over.

    The male interviewer bid me a good day as the female employee walked ahead of him towards the store in The Domain. Needless to say I was not offered the position, despite being well qualified.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Apple (San Jose, CA) in October 2009.

    Interview

    I interviewed with the Store Manager for a comparable position. Standard interview ?s, just the the thing that stuck out was how disinterested he seemed in being there. He was late to interview and did not appear to be in the store earlier in the day. He was one of the most arrogant people I have ever interviewed with and asked the most ludicrous questions repeatedly. The managers of these stores seem more interested in their egos than hiring a diverse and qualified staff.
