I would love to work for Apple, I am a team player and my Experience with apple products would be knowledgeable, the idea of working at home with two teenage kids would really suit me, I love solving problems and am very determined and would learn a lot from this company.
Very vast amount, my advice would be only to think / confirm exactly what they want to know, and answer straight to the point. No waffle.
Does Apple require pre-employment background checks? What kind of background check does Apple do and how long does it take to complete?
External company does it. Sometimes sloppy, especially in countries where no one else speaks english (like Hungary). Follow up helps procedure.
No there are no night shifts but it is shift work so weekends and public holidays (like Christmas, New Years day) have to be worked if you are scheduled.
How long does it take to get hired from start to finish at Apple? What are the steps along the way?
5 step interview process mostly online. Need to have good communication and technical skills.
