    OP
    Exactly.. they are not hiring to build rockets.. after 9 people’s opinion they decided to give verbal offer then what made them change their mind and need for one more round of interview.. If I was not a good candidate they would have definitely rejected!! I m venting because I was hoping to get offer letter by this week and now everything depend on this one more round! That’s why wondering what they want!!

    If you were a better candidate they wouldn’t have had to keep being wishy-washy

    Even my interview experience was worst with Apple(Ads team). My interview was supposed to end 3.30 PM(total 6 rounds as per schedule). Final round was with Director. After the chat he says can you wait for few mins in the meeting room. Waited almost 15 mins he showed up with another engineer and had interview for an hour and 15 mins. WTF.. so unprofessional. Director wasn’t even polite enough to ask they are going to have one more interview..

    Heard about hiring cuts at Apple ..anybody knows if IMG team is in trouble or not with the reorg or hiring cuts. I have got an offer from IMG and background check is in progress will get formal offer letter after that, HR is responsive and says everything is on track..

    This is not good and quite irritating for the candidate. However the interview process at Apple is very much team specific. In my team, it’s 1 (or 2) phone interviews followed by an on-site interview. Usually decision is reached with 2-3 days and the first offer (or rejection) is communicated within a week. I have rarely seen an exception to this.

    Literally got an InMail from an Infosys recruiter for the same opportunity. Looks like they are looking to find someone better than you for the same role

      Go for it then..but what role are you talking about

    You posted before wondering why it was taking so long after verbal offer. Mainly it was shutdown, but obviously this reorg happened as well. What happens next is up to you and how you want to view it. If they didn't still want you, they would have said so. Sometimes there are reorgs, it happens. Unfortunately it happened right at offer for you.

    So you can either explore the new team (most likely the next "round" would be chatting with the new hiring manager to learn about team and interest, not more technical stuff). Or just tell them you are passing and move on.

    This happened to me. In fact, I’m still waiting for them to “restructure”. Had a second on-site with senior directors/VPs and given the latest intel in terms of hiring I may not be given a formal offer. Oh well, life goes on. I enjoyed the experience and opportunity.

    Looks like you had bit of a bad luck here. Definitely not all groups at Apple have these many rounds. Org change is also a bad timing but may be a blessing in disguise. Imagine you getting hired and then your group getting dispersed or moved to less significant role.

  • Is it really an interview or more like a talk between your expectations and team’s charter?

    Even if HR decides to put you on a new team, I think you should still talk to the new manager to see if they have the kind of role you are expecting.

    That’s pretty shoddy !! It will give you some insight into how they operate and also if it is a place you want to work. That number of interviews seems onerous

    Thats sad. Keep interviewing at other places. Do not complain. Either agree to do the interview or quit the process.
