    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at RealNetworks (Seattle, WA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    I had a phone screen and then two follow-up phone interviews with a manager. I thought they all went well, but I was sent the kiss of death "thanks but no thanks" e-mail shortly after the last phone call. This sounds like an exciting team to work on and I'm well-qualified, so it made little sense to me. I was disappointed. I always am a bit bummed out when companies make their decisions based on so many phone interactions.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at RealNetworks (Seattle, WA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    No wonder this company went through so many layoffs, the people there, the IT engineers, enjoy big offices and ask big open-ended questions, yet the better your answers the less likely you would be hired as the interviewers do not want someone more competitive than themselves.

    • The most difficult question to answer was when I was asked how I handled a problem I had faced in a previous work environment. It took me a few seconds to identify one, simply because at my previous jobs, the work was so streamline, there weren't many issues.   1 Answer

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at RealNetworks (Seattle, WA) in April 2010.

    Interview

    An employee referred me to this position. I had a phone interview with the Hiring Manager and HR lasting for about 20 mins each.A week later I was asked to interview with a panel of 5 people from upper management ranging from 45 mins to an hr with each of them. They asked me about my previous work experiences to see if there was a match between what I had accomplished and the job I was interviewing for. Everything went positively but it looks like they have a number of applicants who might have more experience in Program management. This position did not need a technical background so I was not asked any design or programming questions. I was tested on communications skills and how passionate I was to build their online community.
