    I have been working at Audible full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is a fast moving company that cares about its customers and its community. The things that are most important to me are the friendly employees, the challenging work, great benefits, including Amazon stock, free lunch, happy hours, flexible work policy, recognition and rewards for going above and beyond your normal job duties, and convenience to mass transit.

    Cons

    Working out of two locations in Newark sometimes requires a lot of walking back and forth; workload can be overwhelming at times due to headcount restraints, and you may have to juggle many issues at once to keep everyone happy.

    Advice to Management

    Work together and take the steps needed to resolve common theme complaints.

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Audible in February-2014.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • I found that wasn't quite prepared for the specificity desired in terms of metrics for success. I had many qualitative examples of success/improvements in my past work but these were not sufficient. Because Amazon had been a past client, she had a number of questions related to my experience working with them which I found difficult to answer.   Answer Question
