What Interviewing at Apple Is Like

Ever wondered what it would be like to interview for a job at Apple? Given the company’s intense secretiveness, news about the hiring process is often hard to come by. But one freelance developer, Luis Abreu, recently took to his blog to describe all he went through when Apple became interested in him for a position on its Developer Publications team.

In short, it was an intensive process. “[Three] screening calls, 5 FaceTime interviews, a trip to Cupertino for 5 two-person interviews lasting a whole day and a lunch at the newest Café Macs,” he wrote. “In the end, I got a shallow no.”

While the one-on-one FaceTime interviews were a half-hour long, the in-person sessions took six hours. “The tone was casual and everyone was friendly,” Abreu added. “I wouldn’t say the interviews themselves were hard despite the barrage of questions aimed at understanding who I am as an employee, writer, and developer.”

In return for all that effort, however, Abreu received a brusque rejection (“we will not be moving forward with your application”). At least he found the experience an interesting one. Anyone curious about applying for a job at Apple would do well to check out what he has to say.
