That's a good sign. Just play it cool. Most times when it's a GM interview, it means you're pretty much in. The GM just wants to meet you to get a feel for you. At least that's how it is at best buy.ß

Congrats. They wouldn't want you back for a second interview if they weren't interested. Hope it goes well.

Well that is good news as you are on the short list.

Tell the interviewers how much you need to work for Apple and how excited you are at the prospect. Enthusiasm counts for a great deal.

In most situations that I've seen, a second interview is essentially to let you know you have the job. Don't get me wrong. They may ask a few question, and they'll probably want to get a feel for you by having some small talk, but they are prepared to offer a job if it seems like you're on the up and up.

What will you be doing in the Apple store?. Genius people / computer technician or sales person?.

I went for a job for best buy way last year for geek squad. I never took it as they only were offering $9 per hour.

Sounds like your in. Good luck

Hi Ryan. It usually works like this. 1st interview is the group interview. A few people get called back for a second one on one interview with the People Leader and sometimes the main store manager will sit in. Sometimes there is a 3rd interview after this with someone from corporate depending on what position you are applying for. Also it is not uncommon for people to go through 4 interviews before getting hired. Getting called back in is always a very good sign. What position are you applying for and what area? Also, keep in mind if you do get hired you have to be very careful about what you post on forums like these. Good luck!
