    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Sony Pictures Television in February 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through an alumni at my school. I first had a phone screening with the assistant in my department which was about a 15 minute conversation just getting a feel for how I was on the phone as well as my personality. I then completed a Skype interview a few weeks later with my supervisor which probably only lasted for 5 minutes. It was a relatively smooth process but I had also had my resume pushed through from my career services at my university.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Sony Pictures Television (Culver City, CA) in March 2012.

    Interview

    I was contacted by email to see if I was interested in interviewing for the position. Once I accepted the offer to interview I did 2 rounds of interviews, a couple days apart and was then offered the position via email from my superior. I negotiated my salary, we agreed upon a start date and I was hired. The interviews were one on one and gave me a good idea of the workflow of the dept. as well as the type of work that the dept. does. I was surprised to find that the environment was cubicle city but this is probably pretty standard.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sony Pictures Television (Singapore (Singapore)).

    Interview

    There were three rounds of interviews, and after being put through all three, I never heard a single word back from them. I have no qualms about being declined if my skills and character aren't the right fit for the company, but after having spent so much time meeting with them I was expecting them to at least have the courtesy to respond, even if it were just to decline.
