The interview questions to get a job at the global, dominating technology brand, Apple, are revealed… It’s now just a case of answering correctly to score a place under the umbrella of the giant corporation.
A good chunk of the experiences customers have had when entering an Apple Store have been positive, with the staff being most helpful in all situations. It is fair to say that the Apple employees in the most of stores are clued up about everything Apple, and what it stands for. The interview questions focus away from the retail positions, however, with questions to determine jobs of those who really dream of delving into the depths of the company’s creativity.
