    Hey Everyone,

    I just had a few quick questions and was wondering if some of you would be so kind to answer them for me and help me out. :) So I just applied for an HR Market Manager position 3 days ago and was wondering how long apple takes to review the candidates and how the overall process is. Yes, I realize I just applied and will give it some time but am just curious. Also, I do not have the preferred amount of HR experience the position calls for but feel the experience I do have (not in HR, in retail and in general) as well as my education will make up for the missing years of actual HR experience. Will my profile automatically be tossed because of my lack of actual HR experience?

    Thank you so much guys! I appreciate any advice or feedback anyone could give me! :)

    In this specific case, how would anybody know unless they were the hiring manager/director ?

    Personally, when I hire, and I want to see a certain amount of experience, there is not much that will make me back down on that.
    I think about it before I define the job, and I expect the experience for a reason.

    Education rarely makes up for experience. That's just the way it is.
    If I want education, I specify what I want.

    Not quite the same area or skill set, but in 2010 I had a phone interview for a technical IT position with Apple. The position was a Unix server administrator in their retail store business segment. I interviewed with a technical person who was a member of that team the position was with, and at the end of the interview, he told me the next step would be for his boss to call to interview me. To this day, I have never received that next phone call. At that time, I had 18 years of various IT server administration / Unix server admin experience under my belt, which was directly applicable to the position I interviewed for. I'm guessing it might have been they had already found another candidate by the time I was interviewed, decided not to hire for the position, ... who knows.

    I have, of course, found other employment and am not still waiting nervously by my iPhone for that call to come in.... :oops:
