Can You Answer Apple’s Job Interview Questions?
Throwback to this post, when I asked if you had what it took to work at Google, In my opinion, if you can work at Google, you can work anywhere – here’s something similar to that.
I saw these Interview Questions on Glassdoor and I just felt it might be very useful to some of us given that other companies like copying these big tech guys. We all know that Apple is one of the biggest Tech companies in the World and to get a job there wouldn’t be so easy.
Glassdoor decided to make this easy by providing some questions Apple Inc uses to select their employees – I have selected the top 7 questions I feel are more brain tasking and require more brain knowledge. Is your brain equipped to answer these Apple’s Job Interview Questions? If Yes? Let’s do this 🙂
You have 100 coins laying flat on a table, each with a head side and a tail side. 10 of them are heads up, 90 are tails up. You can’t feel, see or in any other way find out which side is up. Split the coins into two piles such that there are the same number of heads in each pile.
There are three boxes, one contains only apples, one contains only oranges, and one contains both apples and oranges. The boxes have been incorrectly labeled such that no label identifies the actual contents of the box it labels. Opening just one box, and without looking in the box, you take out one piece of fruit. By looking at the fruit, how can you immediately label all of the boxes correctly?
Given an iTunes type of app that pulls down lots of images that get stale over time, what strategy would you use to flush disused images over time?
