I interviewed at Sony (Culver City, CA)

At first, they scheduled a typical background interview of asking about your experience over the phone. After that, I haven't gotten back with any feedback despite the interview being of good energy. Emailed recruiter and got no answer as well.

I applied online. I interviewed at Sony (Tokyo)

Interview

The interviewer said he does not know much about the position I applied for, and insisted on me asking question about the position he said he does not know about. He continued the interview talking about himself. That part was just weird.

Application

I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Sony in Apr 2023

Interview

In April 2023, I applied to Sony Bangalore through SpanIdea Systems. The interview was the worst ever. The first round was with Spanidea, and the final client round which on 13th of April had no specified duration. The interview started late, lasted an hour, and I completed all the theoretical and below coding questions, but never heard back from them. Since the interview timings were not specified I had to drop-off after an hour because of another scheduled meeting. When I asked for feedback, the HR said they might not be considering me because I'm attending other interviews. The level of professionalism in both the organizations is anybody's guess. Period.
