Been reading this over in blind and experienced the same myself.

Interviewed onsite with 2 apple teams - one on 7th Nov, another 13th Nov. Emailed them both yesterday (after their shutdown) and received replies from neither !!

Is it safe to assume that they are *not* moving forward with me ?? I have an offer deadline on Thursday.. not sure what to do, maybe will email back again tomorrow evening(??). We spend hours preparing and spend a grueling day interviewing and recruiters don't even bother sending a template rejection.. Gee, thanks Apple !

    No, Apple is notoriously slow on the hiring process.

      I count myself lucky that the time between my first phone screen and getting an official offer letter was about 2 months.

    This is standard practice with recruiters. Yet when candidates do the same to them, they go ape shit.

      I interviewed with many companies this time around. The worst response time was Apple. I had a much better experience with other recruiters..

      This is an extremely greedy generalization of recruiters.

    It blows my mind how many people go through a “day of grueling interviews” and don’t manage to get a straight answer on what will be the next steps and by when you can expect to hear back...and then get all anxious and post unanswerable questions on Blind.

    If your interview was so “grueling”, you should rethink your intention of working at Apple.

    IMO if you see any job interview as the way you describe you’re probably not suited for the job.

    I hear Safeway is hiring tho; put the eggs on top.

      The engineers interviewing spend significant time on the on-site process. The candidate coming on-site at least deserves a template rejection email! At least honor your engineers time for christs sake

    My offer was extended after 3-4 months. Granted, my recruiter followed up every other week to let me know the wheels were still turning -- but it takes a long ass time.

  • I recently had interviews with 3 different teams at Apple. One didn't go well and I received a rejection from that specific team after 2 days. Most companies don't even bother to send you a rejection, unless that's the case, longer wait times should be viewed as a positive signal.

    I felt I was ghosted by MSFT, turned out they were super slow.

    Not necessarily you are rejected. You have higher chances of not being rejected if you have waited long. Hold on!
