Hi everyone,

I know this on-site preparation question has been asked a lot of times here and I reviewed all of them. But I have some unanswered questions which I am adding below. Even my recruiter is not responding when I asked these questions.

1. I have my On-site from 10:30 to 4pm. How many rounds of interview will I have?

2. How many technical, behavioral and design rounds?

3. In design, do I need to just prepare for system design or OOD as well?

4. How long is the each round?

5. Also, I heard that I need to get 'Yes' from all of the interviewers at Apple. Even if one person says 'NO', it's a reject. Is this really true?

I heard that onsite interviews at apple are very team specific. I am interviewing with Apple Maps team for a software engineer role.
Location: Cupertino, CA.

Any pointers/tips and of course answers to the above questions is appreciated :)

Thanks in advance.

    For the first question and fourth question, you seem to have a full day on-site which means 45 mins each round with a 1 hour lunch (which is technical too). Not sure if you would have 15 mins break or not. One of my interview had 3 15 mins break and the other didn’t have any.

      Thanks for the info. How many 45 minutes rounds you had. It seems like I will have one extra 45 minutes round(if no breaks in between).

      So I had 2 interviews back to back with 2 teams. I don’t exactly remember how many slots I had for the first one (the one that had breaks). But the second one was from 1030 to 4 and had 7 slots. One of them was 1 hour lunch with hiring manager and one was 30 min chat with a different peer manager and their director.

      Cool. Back to back with 2 teams? Don't they have any cooling period for On-site interviews?

      Actually I had back to back with 3 teams. 1 with CoreOS and other 2 a different org. I was applying to all the positions around same time so the recruiters were ok with it. Although when I passed 2 on sites, they said to pick a team before one of them can give me an offer. For cool down, I am not sure, but as far as I have heard, there’s a 6month to a year cool down if it’s in the same org but none of it’s in a different org. But then again, it’s something I heard so not 100% sure

      System design or object oriented design?
      In coding interviews, were they Leetcode medium or hard?

    Probably will have to write some code and make your internal thoughts verbal.
