Apple interview attire

Intel Pittock
May 25, 2018 14 Comments

Have an on-site in a few weeks with the team. I wanted pointers on what to wear that shows I'm a serious professional but can also fit into a laid-back culture. Definitely don't want to wear a suit, or show up in my asteroids t-shirt. Obviously aiming for something in between, but still trying to figure out where on the spectrum to dress. FYI, I'm a guy. Thanks.

    Unless you’re interviewing for an Exec role or Sales, please don’t wear a suit. You’ll just embarrass yourself for being the one overdressed in the room. Wear jeans w/ a formal shirt and shoes.

      Thanks! Yeah, I figured the Intel and Microsoft comments were probably from lifers that haven't interviewed since the '80s. I learned the hard way interviewing for FB a few years back that suits send the wrong message for devs.

      I typically wear button-downs at the office, but not sure whether to wear it tucked or untucked for Apple. I'll feel out the recruiter for details and make a decision. Thanks again!

      I'm in sales so that's why I said suit. I'd never go into a sales interview without a nice coat on.

    You can't go wrong wearing a nice suit. You can show your laid-back style using your personality.

    I interviewed at Apple a couple of weeks back. Went in wearing a jeans and button down shirt. The on-site invitation email said business casual which is definitely not a suit.

    Polo and dress pants are fine (even jeans) are fine. We really don’t care how you look.

    The Intel and Microsoft guys are trolling. Just come in a nice pair of jeans and a button up if you want to be fancy. Wearing a solid color fitting t-shirt is also fine.

    No problem with the suit as well, as long this is what you feel comfortable in.

    Plain colored smart T-shirt (blue, dark red, black, dark grey etc), plus jeans. Use a T-shirt with a collar, or a button-up, if you prefer.

    If you really dislike jeans, chinos are totally cool too.

    Just wear a nice polo/collar T-shirt and jeans/pants. Don’t wear a suit or something too casual like shorts and flip flops.
