    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Sony Mobile Communications (San Mateo, CA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process started with a phone call and quickly was in person by no less than 5 people. Some were one on one and others were paired. They were all very kind and easy to talk to. It went very well. With one person we were enjoying ourselves so much we spoke for two hours before we realized we were probably done. Needless to say, I got the job.
