    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

    Interview

    Transitioned from Temp to Permanent employee after 3 months. Staffing agency was easy to find online. Called them up and then registered with the company. They interviewed me for the Ops position and sent me over for the job. I made sure to learn as much as possible while there and became an asset. After a few months they offered me a more permanent position.

    Administrative Assistant II Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sony Pictures Home Entertainment (Culver City, CA) in July 2013.

    Interview

    The most important thing about interviewing with Sony Pictures, is to be well versed of the department for which you are applying for. They want to hire someone that is very aware of the department no matter what the position is because they do promote their employees. Having prior experience seemed important, but the interview was about what the department does. Had I been more prepared as to what the department was all about as opposed to being prepared to share how qualified I as for the position, I believe the interview would have run much smoother. Also, it is important to know who you are being interviewed by. Know what they do, their history, what they are involved in--this gives you more to talk about and shares that you did your homework.

    Interview Questions

    • The most unexpected questions were about what the department does. It was expected that I know the answer.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sony Pictures Home Entertainment (Culver City, CA) in September 2011.

    Interview

    3 separate interviews (4 if you can't HR) with a total of 5 different people. (Last one was panel.) Everyone was friendly, but the process took a very long time.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There wasn't one. They made a "take it or leave it offer" which is to be expected for low level positions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Sony Pictures Home Entertainment (Culver City, CA) in September 2009.

    Interview

    The hiring process began with a recruiter who set up a 1-on-1 phone interview with the Hiring Manager. I then went onsite to meet with 4 managers/ directors for individual interviews. Interview process lasted 6.5 hours onsite. I left the interview with a negative feeling, as the people were not as personable as I had hoped and mid-interview they told me they would are considering my for a lower position than I was originally interviewing for. I found that to be misleading and reflect poorly on the company. I left the interview knowing that I would not accept a position if I was offered one.
