I interviewed with apple for their global supply manager role. I had 1 phone screening with a recruiter, 2 phone calls with senior levels managers, and one super interview day with 4-5 senior managers in different areas of the company, taking about 2-3 hours. It was fairly demanding, especially the super interview day and I can’t say I felt it was really necessary. Everyone seemed fairly pressed for time and either came to the interview late or left early. It was a little demeaning. My ideal interview experience would be 2 meetings max.

For Facebook and Amazon it was the typical process. Which was the H.R. screening, meeting with hiring manager, then the last round with a panel. Depending on how senior the role is at Amazon there’s an assessment before you talk with H.R. Also the last round can last for a few hours. So I will say Amazon is grueling for that reason.

I wonder why so many interviews. Why it takes so long? You can be in an interview process for months.

I spent 8+ years in agency new biz and increasingly felt like a cog in the capitalism wheel, working long hours for causes I didn’t really believe in. Although I enjoyed the thrill and collaboration, I was deeply missing the connection to purpose. So through a series of moves (AMA 👍), I now lead marketing for a sustainable forestry NGO. It is a huge relief. And now I’m looking to hire a marketing manager! Perhaps one of you is interested in a similar switch? Long shot, but more info is below.

I know I’ll probably catch flack for this but feel compelled to say it anyway. I get really upset when I see parents teaching their kids to steal on the subway. I swear I’ve seen so many times a parent has their little 4 year old duck under the turnstile and open the door for them. It’s not just stealing $2.75 from the city. It’s stealing from the moral character of your kids. At least pay your way and demonstrate being a lawful contributor to society, kids ride free for a lot of stuff anyway

Fiancée (woman) wants to keep her hyphenated name after her previous divorce because she likes it better and wants to keep using it for her career/personal brand. Fiancé (man) thinks keeping it hyphenated is disrespectful to him, does not see how shortening a hyphenated name detracts from personal branding, would prefer she only use her maiden name going forward, and does not want her to adopt own last name once married. Who do you side with?
