    Digital Commerce Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  San Mateo, CA
    Anonymous Employee in San Mateo, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Sony PlayStation.

    Interview Details

    Initial phone interview was easy and the hiring manager/interviewer decided to fly me up for an on-site interview. After arriving at San Mateo office , a recruiter directed me into a conference room and that was the last time I saw him. No introduction to the company or follow up after the interviews.

    I interviewed with 6 people, 30 min each, but the hiring manager was away on vacation. I am not sure how a company can hire properly without meeting the candidates. It's also very disrespectful to the person who nixed their whole day to meet with you.

    With the exception of 2 people (1 being a last minute replacement), the rest of the interviewers didn't look like they wanted to be there. None of them read my resume prior to the meeting though I can't fault the last minute replacement (who was also the most professional). The questions I received were not very thoughtful and seemed to focus more on my management style. They seemed mostly concerned with my willingness and tolerance for wailing through corporate bureaucracy.

    The travel reimbursement process also took longer than expected due to delays caused by "recently switching over to a new payment system".

    I was passed for the position, but was somewhat relieved based on the negative impression I received from the interview process.
