    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Dolby (San Francisco, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Was contacted by a Recruiter a few days after applying for the position. Initial HR call was short and sweet, and was contacted immediately after for a call with the Hiring Manager. Hiring Manager was sweet and easy to talk to. HR was very prompt with scheduling interviews (phone and in person), and about a week and a half after call with HM, I was seen for a in-person interview with Hiring Manager, Communications Associate and my Recruiter. After a week and a half, I was notified via email that they had offered the position to another candidate.

Most of the interviewer just asked about your background and briefly talking about the work on Dolby. Technical question are about basically C/C++ problem.

    They arranged a HireVew interview. This was advertised as being better than the usual phone interview, since it is online and you can take it at any time. There were four programming questions, which one could solve in any one of the languages in the list. The ones I remember are C,Java, Python and many more.

    Internship Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dolby (San Francisco, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Overall, I enjoyed speaking with the actual product team, but did not appreciate the back and forth and lack of cohesion as I went through the intern recruiting process for this position.
    First round interview was coordinated promptly and consisted of 30-minute phone screen.
    After follow up with the recruiter, received an email from a different recruiting coordinator 8 days later at the end of the day (5 p.m.) to schedule a second phone screen the next morning. Also asked about my timeline and other opportunities. Promptly scheduled phone screen for next morning. After 20 minutes waiting for the call, emailed the recruiter and found out the person was on vacation. Rescheduled the second phone screen for the following week. After waiting for the call, I emailed the recruiter, received an out of office and was redirected to another recruiter. Received a response that they forgot to cancel the second phone screen and the team was making their decision and I would hear the next day. Three days later, I received a decline.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dolby.

    Interview

    I was contacted for a non tech-related phone interview after applying online for a summer internship. The interviewer I spoke with seemed very rude and rushed, and very unhappy to speak with me. I was asked one or two extremely generic questions about Dolby and my work history and hung up on.
