    Great communication with the recruiter which led to a very transparent process.
    Whole process took about 1.5 months.

    Visual Merchandising Project Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Sony Electronics (San Diego, CA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed with 10 people, 2 interviews for a total of 6 hours. Also had 2 huge projects for each candidate to complete. Their standards are very high, too high for Sonys declining business to be quite honest. My current employer is a much larger more successful company than Sony but they still had a chip on their shoulders and drilled me. Bring it on I thought! However, the hiring manager was very condescending and blunt. They questioned my intentions and skill set regardless of my experience. Honestly, I ended up saying I was not interested anymore when they said there was a 3rd interview.
    They are not a company or team that I would care to work for.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sony Electronics in June 2016.

    Interview

    I got the interview through a recruiter. Unfortunately, the Sony agent who interviewed me knew nothing whatsoever about Sony's information security history, nor the accompanying laws in USA. She was late for the interview and had a thick Indian accent, making it difficult for me to understand what she was saying/asking.
