Apple negotiation

I’ve progressed to the final stages for apple but haven’t discussed my current or expected TC / level with the recruiter yet.

If I’m fortunate enough to receive an offer I’m wondering how the process will play out. If the onsite is successful will I be made an offer outright or will I be asked my TC / level expectations and then go from there?

Any tips or advice on how to put myself in the best position? FWIW I have pretty good TC already and am hoping to have at least 1 more offer soon, but want to work for apple

    If you pass interviews, you’ll be asked your expectations. Then back and forth negotiating. Then internal approvals. It’s not a quick process or at least was not for me.

      How long did the process end up taking for you?

      You can base your expectations on objective things, not your current comp. A good response might be "I understand the average base is around 200k for ICT5, which is right in line with what I was thinking, as my Google recruiter has slotted me to the equivalent level and mentioned I should expect to be in the 200-215 base range".
