    Summer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sony Pictures Entertainment.

    Interview

    It was a phone interview. Pretty basic questions. You just need to show your interest and you did research the company before the phone call. The recruiter is very nice, she even asked me to apply for more positions so I could have a better chance for an in-person interview.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sony Pictures Entertainment (Los Angeles, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and within a week I got a phone call for a phone interview. Then I was scheduled for a in person interview, in which they cancelled at 7pm the night before my interview. My recruiters was very slow and unprofessional,takes days to reply although she said there looking to hire ASAP , does not send out confirmations or follow up. I hadn't heard anything about my reschedule so I reached out a week later. She said the job was closed for a month or so. Shouldn't tell that to the prospective candidates ? I don't know how she even got that office manager position, Andee is completely incompetent.

    Columbia/TriStar Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sony Pictures Entertainment (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    A phone call set up between myself and the executive. It was short and clearly not a priority. There was urgency to conduct the interview so a call was set up, as I was out of town. In speaking with both the executive and the assistant, it was clear that the assistant was far more informed on the process than the executive. The process was pleasant enough but not very useful for either party.

    Literary Development Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sony Pictures Entertainment (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted for an interview about 2.5 weeks after applying online and then scheduled for in-person. After arriving early, I was kept waiting about 30 minutes with no apology or explanation. To add insult to injury the entire interview felt rushed and it was clear my interviewer didn't really read my resume. Overall, I was left feeling this could have been done over phone or Skype to avoid wasting my time and the interviewer's. Who really doesn't screen candidates over the phone in 2016? It would have been great if they actually knew what they wanted instead of posting a typical, vague job description.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Sony Pictures Entertainment (Culver City, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    There was an initial phone screening then I was invited to an onsite interview with one of the senior analyst. I was then invited again for a second onsite interview with the hiring manager and two senior analysts on the team.

    The interview itself was very fluid with basic questions and gauging of the candidate's personality.

    The recruiters were mostly quick with their responses and decisions. One week or so after the second interview, I was extended an offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sony Pictures Entertainment in August 2016.

    Interview

    Pretty easy and basic data entry questions. The interviewer talked more about his work than what I would be doing, but most of the questions that were asked were about my resume. The interviewer was nice but stressed the fact that they didn't want someone overqualified since they wanted a person who would remain in the position long term.
