    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sony Pictures Entertainment.

    Interview

    It was a general skype video with Human Resources followed by calls from multiple departments that they deemed me to be possibly fit for. After a call with one, I got a follow up by the SVP of the department and got chosen after that.

    Interview

    The initial recruiter never completed the interview because she forgot. She then forwarded my information to the wrong department, so I started the interview thinking I was interviewing for a different job than I was actually being interviewed for.

    Office Assistant Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Sony Pictures Entertainment (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    To be honest, everything about this process was unprofessional. It is clear that SPE has some major internal issues that generates miscommunication on all levels. I had a 2-1 interview and my interviewers seemed like they had never done an interview before. Details on the position were choppy and their expressions were spacey. They seemed like they hated working there and wanted to get out of the interview as soon as possible. This was my 3rd interview and one of the interviewers didn't even know I had already come in before. If that's not bad communication, I don't know what is. I could tell that they had already made their decision with me when I walked into the interview. This was by far the worst experience I've ever had in any recruiting process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Sony Pictures Entertainment (Carson, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Recruiter emailed me on a Friday about a position I applied for, scheduled a phone screening with her for the upcoming Monday. It was good, a few of your typical “Why Sony” questions but mainly getting to know me type questions. She said she would check with the team and get back to me about an in-person interview. Reached out again about a week and a half later, for the in-person interview. Interviewed with two directors, they were really nice and very welcoming and I loved that they asked good get to know me questions instead of the ridiculous “tell me a time that something went wrong and how did you handle it” anyway to me it seemed it all went great. Fast forward about three weeks later still no news, so I reached out to recruiter she said no decision had been made and many were coming back from holiday vacation so she would follow up with them and let me know. Two days later I get an email asking for my references as part of the selection process so no offer yet. Filled that out and sent it, well now it’s been about two weeks so a total of a month and a half from the first interview and nada. If I didn’t get the job I would really appreciate a courtesy email letting me know so, even a generic one would suffice. I read in a previous review that you don’t find out if you didn’t get the job and need to seek this information yourself. Really sucks that it’s true. It’s all about courtesy and respect for people’s times, even the candidate’s.

    Senior Specialist, VIP Desktop Support Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sony Pictures Entertainment (Culver City, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online. Had 3 internal referrals refer me to the recruiting manager. The recruiting manager directly called to schedule a 30 minute conversation. After the phone call, a two hour interview followed on the lot. Overall experience was excellent, but since it is a big studio their process takes longer in deciding. I ended up accepting an offer at a different studio. For anybody interviewing, if you want an update you must reach out to the recruiter or the person you are dealing with, they will not update you.
