    Average Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Audible (Newark, NJ) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Standard Phone interview followed by Onsite.

    During the onsite, out of 5 interviewers, there was one interviewer (Indian descent, Senior Software Engineer) who behaved borderline unprofessional and condescending in his demeanour throughout the interview.

    Audible -

    When a candidate is thinking out loud, you don't look into a solution you have prepared on your laptop and go condescendingly, berserk in mediocre English.
     I almost felt like leaving their office in the midway of this interview due to this attitude, however kept my calm.

    Apart from this one bad apple, all others were professional. I would not join this firm even I was offered a role.

    Quality Assurance Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Audible.

    Interview

    I interviewed with a few different managers and their interest in my technology skills on my resume lead me to believe that they'd be useful (spent most of the interview discussing it). When I showed up to my first day of work, I found out that all I would be doing was making sure the audio and the text lined up at three different points throughout the book. If it didn't line up, I didn't even have to fix it, just document it.
