    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Apple (Sunnyvale, CA (US)) in May 2018.

    Interview

    I had 7 different interviews over a span of about 2 months. After connecting with an employee on LinkedIn, I was emailed by a recruiter to schedule a 15 minute screening FaceTime interview. The interview basically revolved around my previous experience that was mentioned on my resume and why I wanted to join Apple. Then I was invited to meet with a Senior PM from the specific team they were considering me for. Shortly after, I was invited to interview at Apple HQ in California, which consisted of 4 one-hour interviews with different team members all in one day. I then had one more interview with a Senior PM the following week. That final interview required a lot of PM knowledge. I received the verbal offer shortly after.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked about different project management frameworks and gave some problem solving/analytical cases, etc. Questions with Apple are solely based on your own experience and knowledge. Apple really wants to see how you will add value to the company holistically.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Applied to several postings online, and never heard back from any of them. Went to a career fair, spoke to several recruiters and actually got a phone call from one. We talked about procurement and I mentioned that I was definitely interested. She said she would send my information over to the hiring managers and again, never heard anything back..

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Apple (Austin, TX (US)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was nice. I had an initial phone screening, followed by a more thorough phone interview by the recruiting department. Then I had a phone interview with a department manager and existing Project Manager...the Department Manager having worked there since the days of the Apple Lisa. Next, I went to the Apple facility here in Austin and had a panel interview, which went very well. The final interview was with the manager of the department I would actually be serving and the interviewer was a little harder to communicate with. Ultimately, I was not offered the job, but was told by the recruiter that I was one of the two finalists for the job and encouraged to apply to other jobs at Apple.
