    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Audible.

    Interview

    Audible's interview process was easily the most organized I've ever been involved with. The internal recruiter was clear about how each step of the process would work, and each of those things came to fruition. There was a recruiter phone screening, 1 one-hour phone interviews, and an on-site interview panel of 5 interviews over 6 hours and a lunch.

    Interview Questions

    • Amazon-style "STAR" questions were asked in each interview, along with two whiteboard application design sections.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Audible (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Completed application online (cover letter, resume, portfolio) and received an email asking to set up a call the following week. Very relaxed chat with a hiring manager, probably 50/50 about the role and myself. Seemed to go fairly well, not a home run but the implication was certainly that a second interview would be forthcoming. Ended up being ghosted by the interviewer until I eventually chased them down to be told it was a no. No feedback given.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Audible (Newark, NJ) in June 2020.

    Interview

    Best experience! Amazing recruiter, explains each step of the interview process and what to expect in each round.
    1st Round - Online assessment, I gave online assessment for Amazon luckily Audible considered Amazon's online assessment to pass to next round.
    Final Round - Super day 4 interviews 2 system design 2 coding. 1st system design was to explain about a design which you did and talk about advantages and disadvantages of services you chose. 2nd system design is completely new topic which can be easily cracked if you know the basics. 3rd round coding interview will test you on basics on algorithms and expect you to get the optimal solution. This was easy question using for loops for brute force and binary search for optimal solution. 4th round was little difficult question based on DFS. I did stumble on the question but interviewer helped me with the hints.
    Each round will start with a people's principle and some interviewer may ask more than one. Audible's principles are way lesser than Amazon which makes easier to remember. Make sure you answer in STAR format and conclude with one of the principles.

    Senior Network Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Audible (New York, NY) in April 2020.

    Interview

    I applied at the beginning of March 2020 on the Internet. At the end of March, a recruiter sent me an email requesting a phone conversation to discuss further. I replied the same day with my availability time. The recruiter did not reply any of my several emails. Time passed by, I thought that the person was sick and/or company closed. After TWO months, the recruiter replied my last email, apologizing for the delay, and said that he wanted to talk to me this same day in the afternoon. I replied I was going to do an effort to accommodate. The HR recruiter never defined the scope of the conversation that we were going to maintain. I thought that we were going to introduce ourselves, talk about salary, benefits, etc., but after 15 min, the HR person started with technical questions, some of them where multiple choice, some of them not, which was even more difficult to reply to a non-technical person. When 30 min passed, the recruiter stated that he will come back to me. It has been a month. I do not have any feedback as of today. In the interim, I applied in AWS. It was a completely different process and treatment: punctual, professional people on interviews and deadlines when providing feedback to candidates. Amazon purchased Audible in 2008. I infer for this Audible interview that there is a big gap in being AWS employee vs. Audible employee.

    Interview

    It was okay. nothing too difficult, just mostly CS basics and a few hackerrank challenges. Prepare a little bit and it shouldn't be too difficult. Nothing else to say just trying to get to the 30 word count minimum.

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Audible (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The interview process is exhaustive, there were 7 rounds of Interviews
    1. Normal Job Profile discussion where recruiter discuss about the job role
    2. Technical Interview : Moderately Difficult, you are asked core technical questions which you would us on a daily basis
    After clearing the intial technical interview i was called onsite for a full day interview
    I spoke to 5 different people.
    Since workday is a niche technology they did not have many people to ask correct questions hence couple of those interviews were quiet awkward.

    I thought my interview went well, however dint receive an offer so dont know what happened.

    Their Technical team is really good with lot of good experience there, I was impressed by their knowledge.
