I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Dolby (New York, NY) in Jun 2022

Interview

Typical interview process - initial call with a recruiter, hiring manager video interview, separate panel video interviews with 4 others. First couple steps were straight forward, the panel interviews were challenging with scheduling and having to answer the same questions 4 times. A true panel interview would have been more efficient. Final decision was also slow to be determined. Even though I wasn't selected for the position, I already had multiple other offers and had accepted one before I was notified. I did communicate that I had other offers to the recruiter but it didn't speed up the decision and I later learned that the information wasn't given to the hiring manager.

Interview Questions
  • Typical questions about background and experience with some situational questions mixed in.

I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Dolby (San Francisco, CA) in Jun 2022

Interview

Interview process is a joke. Received an email from a recruiter indicating he was impressed with my experience. We went ahead and schedule a phone call which went very well then he scheduled an interview with the Hiring manager. I spent so much time preparing for this interview. During the video call interview with the hiring manager, this lady sounded she did not want to be there. She asks a question and I answer with a clear and precise answer and all she says is “ok” which made me so uncomfortable. Her questions also were pointless and designed to trick you. Definitely wouldn’t recommend interviewing here.

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

Interview

Very unpleasant interview experience - lengthy, slow and not professional. Recruiter said she would schedule me an interview with the hiring manager at the end of our screening call. It was a month later until I finally interviewed with the hiring manager. The evaluation process took another month and during the time I reached out and asked for clearer timeline and status update but didn't get one. A month later I was told they decided not to fill this position!? Recruiter scheduled a follow up call with me and I wasn't sure what was that for. But guess what? She had NO SHOW. It is very unprofessional and not respectful of candidates time. I also feel like management within is messy as they do not have clear vision on what they want to do.
