    Coordinator & Specialist Positions Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Sony Pictures Entertainment.

    Interview

    I've interviewed twice now with Sony for two different roles and both times they ghosted me despite my following up with them. I let it go the first time, but the second time I had 2 phone interviews, a writing sample and a panel in person. One of the people in the panel was so rude (kept me waiting for 20mins), the others were nice. I followed up and never heard anything back. I also found out that the recruiter was using LinkedIn to recruit for passive candidates because my co-worker was sent by the recruiter the same job I had interviewed for 2 weeks ago and never heard back on. They seem to be disorganized. If it's that bad before you work there I can't imagine what it's like when you do.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8+ weeks. I interviewed at Sony Pictures Entertainment (Culver City, CA).

    Interview

    HR contacted me a month after applying for a phone interview. She was 10 minutes late and unprepared. After a follow up, I received a reply two weeks later for an interview with the director. Then I went in for an on-site interview. It was supposed to be with a panel and only a couple of people showed up. A few questions in to the interview, I knew a decision had already been made and I was only in there to close out the requisition. They stated there’s high turn over (alarm bells) and so they move slowly. It was disorganised and de-motivating. I had to wait a long time between interviewers.

    I did not receive an offer, hence it made my decision easier.

    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.
