    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Apple in June 2020.

    Interview

    I got this interview by reaching out to the hiring manager post's on LinkedIn. It was a 30 mins technical interview. I was asked questions on RF fundamentals, LNA design, PA design and linearity. Also I was asked to explain OFDM and types of PA classes and relation with PAPR. The interviewer said he was impressed and suggested referring me for other RF roles at Apple as he was also looking for someone with strong C/C++, OOP skills and I hadn't done that in a long time.

    Interview Questions

    • What class PA has the highest efficiency? If I have OFDM signal going in, which has high PAPR what class PA should I choose?   2 Answers

    Overall really great experience. Everyone communicated clearly, and gave a great sense of community during the process. There is some time between each step as they work through internal processes, so patience is key.

    Interview

    First a phone interview on basic behavioral questions. Then you attend an info session before doing a video interview with two managers. It was chill, not much to worry; however it is a big commitment for a whole year and I could not do that for various reasons.

    Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Apple.

    Interview

    Starts with a call from recruiter. I had experienced the same pattern with Apple. Once the recruiter talks about the role a little bit, they try to set call with hiring manager. Spoke to hiring manager and thats it. Ghosted calls. Reached out to HR and the HR will either reply saying they will get back once they here from Hiring manager. After a second follow-up, there is just no response.
    We are spending sometime for the calls and putting some effort. Apple can be a little respective of that and repond. The HRs need training or some coutersy to respond.

    Really good interview process overall. A recruiter reached with a phone call to get a general experience, then scheduled an in-store group interview with a manager. The final interview was one-on-one with a store manager.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Apple.

    Interview

    Not recommended to accept or apply if you are self-identified as minority (Black, American Native or Latino) #EEOC. Your resume will not pass from the second technical interview, it seems that for the HR your resume doesn't worth anything. It took around one month and a half (a waste of time). It was for an iOS team. At the beginning everything was fine, some of the interviewers where nice. I solved all the technical white board test and answered all the questions they asked, even when the last white interviewer got very interested to ask questions of very old projects that I have done many years ago, and I barely remembered the details of their code base.

    Interview Questions

    • He was asking me deep technical details about how the app that I developed for other company worked. And some technical leetcode style easy questions.   1 Answer
