    They talked mostly about my experience rather than technical questions. There were 2 interviews, one just to kinda get to know you, and then they talked more about what the company wanted from their interns and the projects.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sony Pictures Entertainment in June 2014.

    Interview

    Very unorganized meetings. I had 2 interviews scheduled back to back, first with recruiter, then with the hiring manager. Recruiter was 25 minutes late, so the interview lasted only 5 minutes. When I went meet the hiring manager, it was obvious the hiring manager had no idea who I was, and had never looked at my resume before the interview. The first 5 minutes were spent watching the hiring manager read my resume. When the interview was done, the hiring manager said goodbye, and did not walk me out of the office.
