    Software Engineer Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Around 2 months after I submitted my resume for Apple software engineer position, I got a call from the hiring manager. He asked me what was the good day for the interview. It took half day for meeting 5 people. It was long hour interview for me. Each interviewer spent ~ 30 minutes and asked ~ 4 questions. Each interviewer asked questions in the different areas.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult area is they asked me very broad areas of what I done in software engineering. Fortunately I got help from interview professional from Interviews Question (www.interviewsquestion.com) before I came for the interview. So prepared very well, there was almost no questions I could not answer. If I did not get help from Interviews Question, I could be failed.   4 Answers

    Interview

    I met my to-be boss at a school career event hosted by Apple. He invited me for a short 30-min interview after our first meeting. Then, I had one more interview over the phone that was technical, followed by a design challenge. After one more interview to discuss the design challenge, I received my offer maybe a week or two later. I stayed up all night on the challenge and learned a lot on the way. Make sure to have fun with the project and try to develop different aspects of yourself with it. These design challenges are definitely not easy.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Apple.

    Interview

    2 rounds the first year (no offer)
    3 rounds the following year (offer)

    Interviewers were all very friendly. Process was enjoyable both years. Each year the team got back to me within a few weeks with their decision.

    If you don't succeed the first year and you really want to work at Apple, keep in touch and reach out the following year. Show that you have improved yourself over the year in ways that relate to the position. Genuine passion for the specific team is key.
