    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Sony Electronics (Miami, FL).

    Interview

    Met with HR rep. and department rep for personal audio. Interview was arranged by staffing and lasted about 15 minutes. Standard interview questions (how do you handle difficult situations, why are you looking to leave current employer, etc). Since it was a position in their Miami office, the interview was conducted in Spanglish, which was a bit uncomfortable, as I was more comfortable in English and them in Spanish. The position was for a five-month contract (paid hourly).

    When I got there for interview, designer asked me to go over my portfolio, I did. and asked some question seeing if I am understanding right about interaction design.

    thats about it.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Sony Electronics (Century City, CA) in June 2012.

    Interview

    was a long process, the whole thing took 2 months. There was confusion with the HR reps, but it was poor scheduling and timing. Eventually I did not wind up with an in person interview because the HR rep cancelled on me the day before. So I ended up with 3 phone interviews.
