I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Apple (Detroit, MI) in September 2017.
I have always had application for a retail location for probably 2 years. Although, end of August I updated my resume, and decided to update the information on Apple's website. After I updated my resume through Apple, a week later I got an email invite to an interview. I then had 3 interviews ahead of me from that point on.
The first interview was with the Talent Manager, and was a group interview. We had 5 of us. The interview lasted about 45 minutes. We started out going around the table talking about ourselves, then he asked questions that we all answered. "Tell me about a time you helped a friend through a difficult situation, and what you did?" After the interview, he asked 4 of us to stay back because he had some questions about our availability . After we gathered, he told us that we passed the first interview and he wants us to go on to a second interview with the Store Leader. And we will be called to when that will be.
A week later, I received a call and scheduled my second interview with the Store Leader. The second interview was just one-on-one, and was very laid back (as the first one was as well.) It lasted 10 minutes, and was very straight forward, "Why Apple?" "What do you love about Apple?" "Tell me about a time you had a metric/target, and what did you do to obtain that goal? What was the outcome?" "What position will you favor the most?" The store leader then told me I have a 3rd interview, over the phone with the Market Leader, and I will be texted when the interview is.
The 3rd phone interview lasted about 20 minutes, and was also very simple with the Market Leader. Pretty straight-forward interview questions. "Why Apple?" "What are some of the changes that you like seeing in Apple?" "What is your favorite Apple product?" "What steps did you take to go above and beyond when assisting a customer?" After that interview, I was informed that that was the final interview, and I should receive a call within 3-4 days on their decision.
3 days later, I was offered the job.
