Apple Return Offer

Nov 12, 2019 9 Comments

So i interned at apple over the summer and got a return offer. before committing to the team i wanted to interview with other teams at apple to see what else is out there. since they have a one offer rule i had to choose a team before getting offer details. so anyways my internship ends and about 1.5 later after interviewing with other teams i decide to commit to my internship team and start talking offer details. its been 3 weeks since we first started the conversation and while the recruiter has been responsive shes been telling me shes waiting on my manager for offer details. what exactly could those details be? doesnt the recruiter just give the standard offer for ict2 for new grads and neogotiate from there? what could possibly be the hold up that could take 3 weeks and what details does my manager need to give?

    Confirming head count? This isn’t immediate start but a return offer that likely takes place the year after.

      Revoked in the sense that there is a lack of headcount and because I’m not filling a position on the team. My manager did say they would open a spot up for me but things might change which is the scary part here. 3 weeks seems like an awfully long time to get approval for this especially since my internship ended more than 2 months ago

      Reasonable worry, might need to get back to LC.

      Tesla interns had the same issue before for headcount, and they didn’t end up with a full time offer even though they did brilliantly.

    Without competing offers (external or internal) you are somewhat at the mercy of the system. Granted it seems as if your manager wants you bad enough to push through some resistance. Leetcoding and interviewing else where is never a waste of time, don’t assume you have a job until you’ve signed on the dotted line.

      Yes I did. I guess I made a mistake of cancelling a lot of my interviews because I wanted to prioritize certain companies. I finished my onsite with google more than 3 weeks ago but I’m assuming the hiring freeze issue at google is really hindering the process for me there

      You should always interview for the competing offers to avoid getting lowballed
