How long does it take to get hired from start to finish at Apple? What are the steps along the way?
Took 2 months for me. There was a phone interview, then group interview in store and then interview with store manager.
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.
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”.
Apple is a cult, they don't listen to their employees. The hours and pay never feels worth it and you have next to no freedom for time off and for me if a job isn't making me happy and there's no long term growth which being in a call center is not its time to go! No matter how much money your company makes, stop treating your employees like sheep.
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.
