I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at RealNetworks in January 2014.
Interview Details – 1st group:
Open position for front end developer for RealPlayer Cloud group. Technologies used: Backbone.js, JQuery, Spring, HTML5
Phone interview - general questions about experience. Asked specifically about Spring experience.
In-person interview. Had 3 45min - hour long rounds:
First round: Print words from a sentence
2nd round: how do you implement exception handling in web applications. How do you implement pagination in websites.
3rd round: Jquery questions. How do you select all image tags in a web page. AJAX call using JQuery
They did not find me fit for their group but recommended another group which works on REST services.
Had phone interview with dev manager from 2nd group: questions asked were about experience, coding question about finding first repeating element in unsorted array. I gave 2 solutions, he asked me to do it in place. I could not come up with a solution for that. Few other questions about Java hashtable, hashmap, hashset. How is hashtable implemented internally in Java

Interview Details – 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.
Interview Question – the only question I didn't love, was when I was asked in-depth about using a Windows phone. I have minimal experience with this OS so I could not give a lengthy response. Answer Question

Interview Details – Recruiter called me and did a phone screen. I came into Seattle HQ and met 3 people for ~30 minutes each. They didn't coordinate their questions much so it was pretty repetitive. They didn't ask any technical questions or test my skill-set but did ask me to tell them about prior accounting experience.
Interview Question – "Do you have a positive or negative impression of RealNetworks?" (Who asks if you have a negative view of their company?! ...should've been a clue the company has problems.) Answer Question

Interview Details – 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.

Interview Details – 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.
Interview Question – I would ideally want a candidate with open source programming background, and you don't have that. What special qualities do you have that would want to hire you? View Answer
