This is how hard it is to get a job at Apple by Ben Geier @FortuneMagazine February 25, 2015, 3:40 PM EDT E-mail Tweet Facebook Google Plus Linkedin Share icons To young techie types with dreams of working in Silicon Valley, few companies are as attractive a potential employer as Apple. But be forewarned, young programmers — the experience cited by one aspiring designer suggests getting a job at Cupertino is tough. Luis Abreu, a user-experience designer based in the U.K., wrote about his exhaustive interview process with Apple on his blog, Information Age reports — claiming to have endured a total of three screenings, five FaceTime interviews and an in-person visit. Each of the five FaceTime talks, Abreu says, was a one-on-one with a potential team member that took around two hours. His in-person trip to Cupertino included six hours of interviews with 12 different people. And after all that? He didn’t get the job.
