Advice to Management
It is mostly good. A small group of mean MBA-type leaders ruin the morale and should go. Enforce the no a-holes policy. Treat people kindly and we will all succeed.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Audible in February-2014.
I applied online for a Product Manager position with Audible. Within about 2 weeks I was contacted for a phone interview, which took a little over a week to set-up. The interview was with a product manager who worked with both Kindle and Audible. She had worked at Amazon in the past. I was not asked back for a second interview and my thank you emails did not receive a response/acknowledgement. All in all a good experience but I could have prepared more with regards to specific metrics for success.
