    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sony Online Entertainment in September 2014.

    Interview

    Basically they called me in for an interview and went over the basics like how are my 3D skills, strongest and weakest skill. Areas of the pipeline I enjoy most and just basic things about myself.

    Interview Questions

    • Probably if there is any part of the pipeline I would like to just do away with what would it be?   1 Answer
