Monsanto drool🤤

Are there any companies with only once-in-a-lifetime shot at their interview process? The business insider article seems to suggest Apple is like that, is that true?

    Life guard. If you survive you get the job , if you drown you die and loose the job. One shot.

    No. Apple does not do that. Maybe per team yes, but not at a company-wide level. That would be very foolish of them to assume that a candidate isn't good enough because a team didn't want them. Source: I used to work as a SWE there

      I interviewed at Apple once in 2016 and got rejected from the position. However, I did get two more calls almost 2 years later for that same group and similar position. So I guess Apple doesn’t do that either.

      Yeah, but it's really more of a "we"ll call you first" thing.

    I worked for a proprietary trading firm that did this, pretty sure it’s fairly standard in that industry.

      I think it was McCain in 2008.

      Mitt lost to McCain in Republican primaries in 2008.

      Mitt losing to McCain in primaries, lets put that out as a phone screening or online assessment. Not an on-site. Lol.

      They don’t really hire externally? From what I saw you start out of collage and then work you way up. Lots of people quit every year. Seems to be hard to break in at higher ranks.

      they do hire transfers from other accounting firms. Not sure about industry transfer into public accounting though. That could be a different game.

    I'm confused what's the point of companies who do this to do this? Unless you're a stockbroker for wall street... why?

      Some hedge fund try to present the reputation of winning, and it works for them until a final massive loss shut down the fund and fired the manager, permanently.

    Apple is not like that. Every team recruit differently and sometimes the recruiter remember why it is not a good fit and find another team for you.
