    I applied online. I interviewed at Apple (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Applied and was contacted 2-3 days after to register for a interview time. Typical interview format for an Apple hiring event, smaller group and we went through all the motions aside from watching the videos. Felt as though the leaders were just going through the motions, smaller group and only asked one question to each candidate, leading each person to only speak for a few minutes within the 60-70 minute interview.

    Retail Specialist Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Apple (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    After applying online, I received an email invitation to attend a hiring event. There were about 20 candidates, and it was a pretty loose, comfortable group environment.

    I was contacted the next day about coming in for a one-on-one interview with someone from the leadership team later that week. That conversation was also very casual, and I ended up meeting with another member of the leadership team directly afterward.

    Yet another 24 hours or so later, I was reached out to again to come back in to meet with a 3rd member of the leadership team. Had that interview the following week, similar format to the previous 2 conversations.

    Up until this point, I felt the process was generally quite positive. Except for after this interview, there was radio silence on Apple's end for over a week (including when I followed up after a few days), at which point I received a default, generic rejection email. It's something I would have expected after the first stage in the interview process, but after meeting with 3 separate managers, I felt the courtesy of a personalized email was deserved. Something to consider.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Apple (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in August 2011.

    Interview

    The interview was very organized. first we all had to wait outside of a conference room in a downtown Hyatt hotel. once the interview started, all the apple employees would cheer us into the room. it took about 2 hours total. it consisted of, first, introducing all the staff running the interview (4 of them) and we all had to go in turn introducing ourselves and something interesting about ourselves (we were encouraged to be out of the box with that). then, they showed us several videos presenting what it would be like to work for apple retail.

    we then broke into 3 groups of 9 with each having an apple employee run a discussion group. they would act out different scenarios that might happen with employees and we would in turn have to comment and make decisions based on what they said.

    finally we were giving a chance to ask them some questions and fill out a questionnaire that tested our familiarity with technology terms (i.e.- what is Wifi, and what are 3 apple products use it?)

    Interview

    Initially a recruiter for Apple contacted me after seeing my profile on LinkedIn. Advised that Apple needed to move quickly on a newly created position. Almost 3 mos before first 1:1 interview. Strange interviews - advised it was all about "the fit". Questions were met with vague responses.
