Social evaluation prior to the start of the interview
The candidates to a position at Apple are evaluated as soon as the pre-interview video call begins for a period of approximately 10 minutes. However, a little over a minute before the job interview begins, the recruiter will make a series of questions to break the ice”.
These could seem meaningless, they are also part of the evaluation, since they serve to know how the candidate responds to trivia questionshow comfortable you feel answering them and how respectful you are when you do.
Submission of questions in an open forum
apple performs group interviews not only to eliminate the waste of time involved in doing them one by one, but also because this way of making the selection allows the behaviour of the candidates in groups.
During this stage of the interviews, the questions are addressed to everyone equally and therefore can be answered in any specific order.

Thanks to this method of interviewing, in addition to saving time, Apple manages to identify the exact people to specific roles on company equipment.
The evolution of group dynamics
From the start of the interviews, Apple recruiters were able to see a change in attitude of the applicants who went from answering questions of little relevance, to competing with others for the same position within the company.
This allows the company to see which people have an attitude more in line with the team that they could join, so by evaluating how they perform both in relaxed environments and in competition for the position, it has been possible to know how they act. the applicants and how their contributions would be in groups.
These tests are what allow Manzana not only remain in the group of most successful companies in the world, but also benefit from groups of smart and qualified candidates that add value to the company.
The idea of the company is to see what many businesses do not take into account, which is the rapport of the candidate with the team to which he could belong. For this, it must be taken into account that the personality and the development of professionals influence within the group dynamicsin addition to the skills that each person has to perform their job correctly.
