I wasn't hired, but the whole interview process (for a business system analytics position) took several months. From March to mid- October when the posted position was closed. I had 2 phone interviews, one with the HR recruiter and another one with the hiring manager. Months later I was invited to an onsite set of interviews with 5 different people in their campus. I never received a formal notification indicating that I was rejected after the position was closed.

Answered

No, I was not drug tested for retail store. Apple’s “positive intent” credo was the reason. If Apple did drug testing for Pot, a lot of sales staff wouldn’t be there.

For corporate jobs (no retail) the process is standard. You submit your online application and a recruiter will contact you to schedule a phone interview. It can take a few weeks to be contacted if you experience fills the profile.
The whole process is painless and Apple makes an effort to avoid stressing the applicants (again this is for corporate positions).

It honestly depends on the managers. I work there part time and during the week 4 hours a day.. 3 times a week and a 6 hours shift on the weekend . As long as your availability is at 26 hours available . Don't let them fool you into making a part time job your life. They also have a way of forcing people out who make this they second job

It’s not worth what follows. You either immediately get peoples opinions on what Apple has done wrong in their eyes or their negative experience with Apple products or the inevitable “I have this issue with my iPhone”. It brings people out of the woodwork to say “hey buddy… By the way”.

Answered

For corporate applicants (no retail) the process is pretty standard. A contact from a recruiter followed by a phone interview, and then if you qualify a phone interview with the hiring manager. The questions are pertinent to the field of your expertise. If you are still in the blessed group of good candidates you will be invited to an onsite interview in their campus. The onsite interview will take a whole day with different interviewers.

Applicants should be aware that the waiting period between interviews can take from weeks to months and that no communications comes from Apple to explain what your application status is.

Tomorrow. I would recommend Apple to anyone. I am, well pretty soon “was”, a senior Advisor in tech support. It is hamster wheel of leadership leaving, you being moved to different teams. The constant changing of knowledge base material without you knowing it and getting zinged when you didn’t do it cause you did not know it. Tons of micromanagement! I have a 4 year degree in Computer engineering and C++, multiple certifications. My skills were not being put to use overall. And those in that position (leadership, team leads, etc. there was no path for growth. So time head out often 8 years and 8 years of missing either Christmas or thanksgiving with my family cause blackout dates. Love ya, but bye bye.
