    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at RealNetworks (Seattle, WA) in August 2008.

    Interview

    Received a quick response to application and resume. Scheduled a phone interview and interviewed with an HR person. Spoke with her for 30 minutes and don't hear from her for two weeks. Then she calls back to schedule another phone interview not realizing we had spoken. I think about half way through the second phone she realized we had talked, but I may be giving her too much credit. She seemed rather dumb and not at all knowledgeable about marketing.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at RealNetworks (Seattle, WA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    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.

    Accountant Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at RealNetworks (Seattle, WA) in January 2008.

    Interview

    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.
