    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newark, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newark, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Audible in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    After submitting an application and you're lucky to be selected to move on in the interview process, you will be invited to a HireVue Virtual Interview. There you will have the opportunity to take the interview at the time of your choice. Its very convenient unless you are are camera shy. The only catch here is that you only have 1 chance to record your answer so make sure to take the practice exam! It will definitely come in helpful.

    If you make it pass the Virtual Interview then you will be chosen to participate in the in-person interview. There you will be interviewed by two people. Everyone at Audible is welcoming and highly knowledgeable so you will be in good hands! As long as you are comfortable, confident, and knowledgeable you should have a good time! The in-person interview feels more like a social event than a strict, nerve-racking interview. The Audible Team really goes out of their way to make you feel comfortable before the questions.

    The office tour is very nice as you get to see where all the magic happens! You have wonderful views of the Manhattan Skyline and Downtown Newark ... and sunsets if you like those! Its a beautiful office reminiscent of the trendy and modern lofts you're likely to see at Google or a Hip Tech Company!

    Good luck!

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Audible.

    Interview Details

    Two phone screens and a full day of hour-long behavioral questioning. Also had to submit two essays. There were almost no technical questions even though it was for a tech manager position. Very little time was left open for me to ask them anything.

    Interview Details

    I originally talked to a recruiter about a position with AWS. My resume made its way to Audible. I was contacted by another recruiter from the Audible office, who said my interview was for the team in Boston. When I got to the interview, the engineer was from the New Jersey office and didn't really know what the team in Boston did. The engineer was polite and mostly professional, but the disorganization of the recruiters was off putting.

    Senior Manager, Customer Care Process Improvement Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newark, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newark, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Audible in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and received a screening phone call from a HR representative within 2 days. He discussed basic questions - background, experience, interest in the role, salary expectations etc. Standard screening to check verbal skills, thinking on your feet etc. Organised a first phone interview which took place 2 days later.

    Phone interview went for 1.5 hours and focused on leadership questions. There were some technical questions, but at a high level. The person I spoke with was very detailed in his explanation of the journey of Process Improvement at the organisation and the senior management buy-in. He also listened to my answers patiently. It was a very pleasant experience. Afterwards, got another call from the HR representative who organised the next stage which was 4-7 on site interviews.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Audible in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and had an employee referral. I have been told this place is all over the place with hiring so the referral didn't seem to help it at all. If anything it only made the process go quicker. I received phone call within two days of applying online/being referred. I then had a phone interview with a separate person 3 days later.

    Product Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Audible in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Got referred by an employees and got a quick phone screen. Was supposed to talk with the hiring manager but someone else called and didn't clarify the change until later in the call. Questions were easy but he was clearly not prepared with the resume and the interview. He was not comfortable being on the call and kept asking simple common questions. He mentioned that the HR found him on the hall way and asked him to take the call. I think he wasn't comfortable make the call. Sounded very insecure.

    Senior Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Audible in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by recruiter. Very soon got a phone screen.

    The screening was a little disturbing as it was a Friday afternoon and the interviewer was obviously ready for the weekend. I honestly do not think it is a big deal as I am also interviewing other companies. But this potentially can be a big turn off for other interviewees.

    We used a shared file to do some live coding. The problem was straightforward and there weren't too many hidden questions.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Audible.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume to a job board. I was contacted by HR within 2 days for a telephone screen. I spoke with HR by phone and was told at the end they will arrange for a telephone interview with the Executive filling the position. The executive's 2nd set of questions - do you have kids, how many, how old? The rest of the interview was standard but having an HR background, I know this is not legal. Within 5 minutes of ending the interview, I received the standard email thanking me for my interest but they are proceeding with other candidates. I emailed the HR person who initially contacted me and thanked him for the opportunity to interview by phone and stated that I understand the difficulty of filling such of important position. I also told him about the family questions. I was surprised to receive a response - but he responded "Thank you for the feedback. I will follow-up internally."
