    I have been working at Apple full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    We work with geniuses - in every department, We create innovative products that thrill our customers and create new product categories - who else can say that?

    Cons

    ZERO ZERO ZERO work/life balance. Execs have been saying for YEARS that they understand and will make it better. But in actuality, it gets worse every year! It is obviously top management LIP SERVICE because if they meant it, they could fix it tomorrow. They have hundreds of BILLIONS in the bank. If they REALLY cared about employee work/life balance, they could bring aboard the right number of folks to make that issue dissolve. Sick of hearing the lies. Just don't lie about wanting to fix it, when they clearly DON'T care

    Aha Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Minneapolis, MN (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8+ months. I interviewed at Apple (Minneapolis, MN (US)) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Very pleasant recruiters. First a phone interview that took about 15 minutes. Followed by two Skype interviews; first with a recruiter after that with a manager.
    Basic trouble shooting questions. They want to really get to know you as a person.
    Just be yourself and don't be afraid to be geeky/nerdy! Make sure you have a desk and dedicated home phone line.

    Interview Questions

    • None really; just be prepared to answer: "can you define empathy for me".   13 Answers

    Negotiation

    none, it's Apple :-)
