Apple Store Leader Program Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Apple in February 2013.

Interview Details group interview, weird because everyone applied for sales jobs except me. I wasn't sure how they would consider me for a position that is far beyond just sales.

Interview Question – no technical knowledge? ha. you need to know some technical, they will ask you questions on "behavioural" but more like product knowledge combined.   Answer Question

Mac Specialist (Apple Store) Interview

Mac Specialist (Apple Store)
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Apple.

Interview Details Applied online. Got a phone call 2 weeks later (there was a new store opening). Attended a group interview. They have a few things they look for during the session - you're being evaluated when you don't realize you are. They did quick role-plays. We were all dismissed, then those who did well got a call back within hours. There was a second interview with Market/Store leaders. Then they called me to offer the job.

Interview Question – cannot remember anything that threw me for a loop.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There's not much for negotiation. If you're a student, get your foot in the door. If you're older/mature, you could push the envelope a little bit, but, still better to get your foot in the door.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Apple in November 2012.

I had an online interview with Apple HR, followed by 2 more with store managers. Upon arrival in the country, I had another 2 more in person meetings and heard a few days later I got the job from HR.
