    Technical Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PlayStation in April 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online, and got a call from a recruiter who went through the basics, told me the position I had applied for actually changed but she didn't have the new job posting, and then set me up with the hiring manager for a call.

    When the hiring manager called me, this person was very robotic and cold. I had heard that they were having difficultly finding a person to fill the role and the search was taking months because they were looking for the right "fit", but my advice to Sony is that it's not the candidates who are the problem. After speaking to this hiring manager for 30 minutes, I was not able to connect with her at all. She had no sense of humour and even cut me off while I was answering a question to tell me that in the position I was applying for I wouldn't be doing any of the previous things I'd done at my job.

    I knew right away that I would not be able to work for a person like this. However, this feeling was validated since the recruiter never even had the courtesy to get back to me with even so much as a generic rejection letter. Hard pass.
