Apple’s interview process is as tough as you would expect it to be, given that it is one of the world’s largest tech companies with a fierce focus on secrecy.
Now Adam Lashinsky, author of Inside Apple has revealed in a LinkedIn interview that people are "hired into dummy positions where they are not really sure what it is they’re doing", in a bid to determine their trustworthiness.
The thought of people working on bogus iProducts seems rather surreal – after all, why pay people to work on something that will never exist – but we have to admit it sounds like a sneakily effective way on keeping tabs on loose-lipped tech boffins without spilling any big secrets.
It didn’t stop the iPhone 4 from being left in a bar mind, but overall it shows the great lengths that Apple takes to ensure that its iProducts remain shrouded in secrecy till their big stage debuts.
