    Software Engineer Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Around 2 months after I submitted my resume for Apple software engineer position, I got a call from the hiring manager. He asked me what was the good day for the interview. It took half day for meeting 5 people. It was long hour interview for me. Each interviewer spent ~ 30 minutes and asked ~ 4 questions. Each interviewer asked questions in the different areas.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult area is they asked me very broad areas of what I done in software engineering. Fortunately I got help from interview professional from Interviews Question (www.interviewsquestion.com) before I came for the interview. So prepared very well, there was almost no questions I could not answer. If I did not get help from Interviews Question, I could be failed.   3 Answers

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Apple.

    Interview

    I was recruited and initially contacted via email. I had a quick call with the recruiter where they gave me some info about the position and team. From there I met with the leader of the team I would be working on, it was a great conversion.

    From here I was told they were going to fly me out to the offices in Cupertino, CA (I'm based out of state) and do another few rounds in a span of 2 days. Then Covid hit.

    We shifted to more virtual rounds of interviews.

    I met with an Art Director who works on a parallel team, that was a great interview. Then I had a group interview with about 6 members of leadership and others on the team. I was given an assignment and had to present to the team followed by a round of questions.

    From there I had 2 more interviews with other members of the team. After all of this I was told the process was slowing because of Covid but still optimistic.

    I kept in contact with the recruiter and they slowly stoped messaging me back.

    Interview Questions

    • Standard questions about design, leadership styles, how I would approach problems, etc.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Apple.

    Interview

    Apples interview process is extremely quick, I had 2 phone calls with two of the team managers for the mac team. One of them was very kind and went through your thought process in depth, however the other was quite fast and at times a little rude. Unfortunately the interviews are very quick and there is only technical questions nothing about behavior.
