    Front End Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Sony (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Met recruiter at a meetup held at Sony's HQ. We exchanged email and responded very quickly.

    However, the recruiter suddenly stopped all contact and a month later, responded that there is a need for years of experience. It was extremely unprofessional and a massive waste of time.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sony.

    Interview

    First a phone interview, then an in-person meeting with 2 Human Resources reps, followed by an in-person meeting with the entire team for which I'd be working. I could tell they were a tough group of people, but they weren't difficult- just very particular as they were very busy and in charge of a very important arm of the business.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sony (New York, NY).

    I applied online and immediately emailed HR. The coordinator got back to me within the same day inviting me to interview via telephone. The phone interview lasted about 30 minutes. I got an email from the coordinator about two hours later inviting me for an in-person interview. Interviewed with HR, the hiring manager, and the communications head dept. Took about an hour and a half. Very friendly people, extremely professional. The whole process took about a week and a half (super quick).

    Attorney Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sony in April 2016.

    Interview

    I received a call from a recruiter. We spoke for about 30 minutes. The questions were generally about my background, my education and career path to date, why I had moved jobs in the past, and why i wanted to move now. She did not have a large amount of information about the job that I had applied for, and said that I could ask those questions if I was offered an in-person interview. This was clearly a screening interview so that she could present the hiring manager with the best candidates.

    Devops Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Herndon, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Sony (Herndon, VA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Engaged with the hiring manager over a four month period. The job description was nearly written for me; while I haven't performed DevOps as a position, I have done the work necessary in a piece-meal fashion.

    My resume met all the stated job requirements and my application was, I think, above average. The manager implied that the job was mine and was just waiting for the position to officially open so I could be hired.

    After the position opened and my application was submitted, there was no contact with the manager nor HR for two weeks. When I finally reached someone, I was told that the position was closed and that the hiring manager was considering other resumes. Apparently, the decision was made by the "team" without bringing me in for an interview; the only person who ever interviewed me was the hiring manager, who indicated that I was a perfect fit for the job.

    Something in the background occurred after the position was officially opened but I was kept in the dark about what the reason the job offer was rescinded.
