What should I expect?

LC medium or hard?

I know a lot depends on the specific team and interviewer but in general if you interviewed with one of the teams, how has been your experience?

    Apple interviewers care more about your role related knowledge rather than your ability to memorize leetcode solutions.

      What does that mean? They care more about my past work experience?

      They care more about your domain specific knowledge which may or may not have come from your past work experience.

    I interviewed 1.5 years ago. Compared to Facebook and Google, it was a piece of cake. I was really shocked that Apple had such a low bar.

      Apple hires folks for very specific roles unlike FG which mostly hire for generalists and then do their team matching.

      Think of FG’s interview process vs Apple’s in the same way a tough entrance exam (like India’s IITJEE) is vs a PhD dissertation defense. Apples vs Oranges.

      Tired of these dumb Apple fan boys defending the company no matter what. Not everybody at FB interviews for generalist position, some are matched with teams before the interview. I interviewed for an nlp position at both apple and fb, both involved giving a research presentation and very domain specific interviews. Google was a bit more general, though within the broader ML space.

      Also if you think apple interview is like a dissertation defense, you have probably never been near a graduate school

      @facebook LOL I actually happen to have a PhD and have worked at both Apple and Google. I guess you missed the point of the answer entirely.
