    Computer Programmer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sony (San Diego, CA) in April 2013.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume online in the morning and they contacted me via email later on the same day asking to schedule a phone interview. I replied with my available times the next day after and they scheduled the phone interview within the next 3 or so business days. The phone interview was done with a manager (but with like 8 years of programming experience). Asked for me to talk about myself and then went into technical questions. He told me I would be contacted in a week either way. I was contacted a week later through the phone about how they went with another candidate. Disappointing since it was a job that I really wanted, but the other candidate had more experience so it was understandable. Very nice process and they were very cordial about it.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sony.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with basic technical questions. My interviewer was kind of awkward and it seemed like he wasn't prepared to give the interview. We talked for about 30 minutes and it seemed like most answers I gave he checked on a sheet of paper.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sony (New York, NY) in June 2012.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly smooth. I talked to my group leader about my past experiences and internships and described projects. There was also a short technical part after which there was an HR screen. After the HR screen I talked to my to-be mentor who went over similar things about my past experiences and what project I liked doing the most and what I learnt from it. Additionally, he also asked me why I would like to join Sony and what I thought would make me a good fit for the team.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Sony.

    Interview

    Initially a call from recruiter. Then there were two technical interviews with pretty easy questions. The engineers also described what they did for the MediaRoom product. Coding questions were done on collab edit. Second engineer weirdly didn't get what I was doing for a question and just presumed I was wrong. (I checked what I did afterwards and it was correct) Both technical interviews were on the phone.

    Interview

    call first and then personal. Very long process. easy. got the call. Take few days to get call but eventually got it. Good experienceis very thorough about their interview process. This is due in part to their stance on not laying people off, but it is also just because they want to find people that are the right fit. Overall, from application to hiring, the process took about four months. I finally really got tractio
