    3 rounds of interviews, each with at least two people on the panel. Some in person and some via teleconference. The panels tended to mix people who would be on that team as well as managers for other departments that the position would interact with.

    Product Support Specialist II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Harrisonburg, VA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Rosetta Stone (Harrisonburg, VA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    You have a phone interview, in which they ask basic questions about yourself and your basic technical skills, which takes approximately 30 minutes. That was followed by an in-person interview, which took nearly two hours.

    I was asked technical questions by an engineerer. They weren't difficult if you have a intermediate understanding of computers. That was followed by an interview by two Product Support Supervisors, which was mainly questions about your history and why you want to work for Rosetta Stone. Finally, you're interviewed by the Product Support Manager, who again, basically asks the same questions the supervisors asked.

    The key to a successful interview with Rosetta Stone is enthusiasm. However, you won't be very enthusiastic once they offer you $13 per hour for the Product Support Specialist II position. I have no idea where Glassdoor got that a salary for the position was in the $19 - $21 range. It's completely incorrect.

    Interview

    Was contacted by phone by the HR for the first round of interviews. That seemed fairly easy. Then had an onsite interview with the manager and project lead. Fairly straight forward.

    Client Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Remote, OR
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Rosetta Stone (Remote, OR) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Remote interview. There was a first-round interview on Blue Jeans with a panel, and then a final-round interview 3 weeks later via Blue Jeans with a Director. I felt really good about both interviews; however, I received a turn-down email about 3 weeks after that, stating that they opted to move forward with another candidate. I suspect it was because of the fact that I am not bilingual. I really can't blame them, because if there was a candidate whose skills and references were just as good as mine, but who spoke Spanish, it is obvious who their choice would be.

    Interview Questions

How would you stress to the client the importance of following recommendations regarding working through the course material if the client complained that he/she/they are just not learning a language as easily as they thought they would?   1 Answer

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Rosetta Stone (Harrisonburg, VA).

    Interview

    Submitted resume. Telephone interview first. Invited to in-person interview with three different groups of managers and executives. After completing the interviews I was taken to lunch. Because the executives tried to hard sell the company and area during lunch (and did not ask any follow up qualification questions of me), I knew they' make an offer.

    Negotiation

    I applied online. I interviewed at Rosetta Stone (Arlington, VA).

    Interview

    Unemployment discrimination? I had a phone interview with a recruiter a few months ago. It went well the first few minutes but once the recruiter asked why I left my last position and I told her that I was laid off due to the downturn at my firm and economy in general, the interview ended abruptly in one minute. Yes, that quick. I realized then that I would never want to work for such a company. How do you treat people who have been laid off through no fault of their own like that? It was so obvious and unprofessional. At least have the decency to ask your next set of questions than to end it so abrupt like that, even if you personally don't want to move the person to the next steps. It is already difficult enough to go through each day without a job. Fortunately I was able to land somewhere else with great benefits and salary at a well known firm. I would never treat an unemployed person like that- you never know when you will be on the other side of the interview table.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Rosetta Stone in September 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online end of August. Received a cal from a recruiter asking what was my interesting on the position. I was said it was a sale position, I kind of declined it. about 6 days later I received an email from the manager explaining to me about the position (very detailed). So we set up a 30-min Phone interview. Since it was a bilingual position, I had an interview with someone about the language target also. Then we set up a date for an on-site interview. 5 days later I got an offer and I accepted. Started working 2 weeks later.

    Interview Questions

    • The interviews were very laid back and comfortable. I didn't have any difficult question.   Answer Question

    Senior Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Arlington, VA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Rosetta Stone (Arlington, VA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    The hiring process was enjoyable and thorough. I was given the opportunity to meet with various team members as well as executives and even direct reports. Each interviewer was clearly very excited to be working at the company and everyone made me feel very comfortable. Each of the interviews was a mix of behavioral questions and competency-based questions with a big focus on team fit. The topics were always challenging, but gave me great insight into the company.

    Interview Questions

    • Several of the interviewers quizzed me in detail about company financials and investor reports. I had done my research, but was surprised by the consistency. It helped me better understand the culture however and that everyone had a vested interest and felt they could individually make a difference to affect those numbers!   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They were very up front throughout the negotiation process and we were able to quickly agree a salary that I felt was very attractive
