    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Sony PlayStation.


    Phone call with HR, one technical interview over phone. They urged me to have the interview right away since they had to fill in the position in that same week. They just seemed to care to know that I know my basics and I had some significant work ex in past. I got the offer after just one technical interview.
