I was a fork lift operator and i gained the ability to operate multiple machines. The hardest part of the job was dealing with extreme temperatures of the warehouse. I enjoyed working with the nice co-workers.

Audit Analyst (Former Employee), Bolingbrook, ILMarch 8, 2015
Pros: we left on time every day
Cons: everything
Managers in the location I worked had a very hard way of dealing with employees. Abuse was very verbal. Conversations was not encouraged so we sat in an open room and talked very little. Employees seemed to not take responsibility for their own errors and looked for an easy out. I admire people who admit mistakes and learn from that mistake.

Lead Maintenance Technician / Packaging (Current Employee), Terre Haute, INFebruary 16, 2015
Work and Sony hasn't been bad. Overall, it has been a good experience. The overall job security isn't there due to a down turn in the optical media marketplace.

Fun friendly work environment
Line Operator/hand packaging (Former Employee), Pitman, NJFebruary 4, 2015
Pros: wonderful work environment filled with hardworkers
Cons: it was shut down .
Wonderful place to work for. Friendly work environment. Dedicated supervisors and managers. My favorite part of the job was meeting new people and learning more skills on the job each and everyday. The hardest part of the job was the flexible shifts that sometimes went from night to day shift. My co-workers at Sony were friendly and efficient workers who gave it there all each and every day when they came to work. Sony closed its Pitman facility .

Interaction designer, Software Developer (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CAJanuary 26, 2015
Pros: i am working on sony pictures campus
Cons: contractors are treated poorly
Culture in the software development teams is lack luster. No one cares about their work. Typical 9-5 atmosphere, except most people do the 10-6+ thing.

Under-staffed and half the people here are on indefinite contract, hard to get full-time. HR is a joke and payments never come on time.

Impossible to work and attend school
Temporary Assignment (Former Employee), Terre Haute, INJanuary 8, 2015
Pros: many hours.
Cons: too frequent mandatory overtime, long hours standing in one place.
A typical day includes going through security, getting assigned an assembly line, assembling and wrapping product, and finishing 12 hours later. It is a simple job but the long hours standing in one place and the poisonous atmosphere from the other employees made it difficult. The constant demand for mandatory overtime also made it impossible to attend classes.

A good environment with mostly great employees
Digital Fulfillment Operator (Former Employee), Marina del Rey, CADecember 18, 2014
Pros: birthday gatherings, sony discounts, complimentary lunches
Cons: department coworkers attitudes, lack of options to progress to other departments
My typical day at Sony DADC required data entry of media from tape based sources, or hard drives, as well as quality control for television and feature film content. I learned how to ingest and manage an exorbitant amount of data and develop an eye for spotting errors in a short amount of time. For the most part, the environment at DADC was an inviting one; however, in my department unfortunately, there were some coworkers who made the working experience less than desirable. The difficulties only lied in the working relations with a few department coworkers, otherwise the rest was a breeze.

Poor allocation of Resources (i.e. Temps) (Employment Plus)
SPA - Paceline (Former Employee), Terre Haute, INOctober 30, 2014
Pros: light on the demand for intensive physical labor, pay rate is steady, etc...
Cons: individual representation is non-existent (this is a commercial entity, not a family business), mismanagement occurs often, security...
I find it a bit disingenuous that successful staffing agencies are capable of advertising the availability of multiple positions to potential employees, but solely provide staff for a single corporation after the fact. SONY DADC being the perfect example in the Terre Haute (IN) area. The turnover rate is ridiculous. Why? The Upper staff (Trainers, Line Leads, Supervisors [and Cores, to an extent]) mismanage relevant information and scheduling, while simultaneously neglecting employee training.

Be aware: Your supervisors will mock you. To your face. While on the line (SPA), you will be discussed at length by all individuals present. The unnecessary drama that unfolds on each shift can be overwhelming. If you are hired, expect to work long hours (12 hour shifts). This will impact you socially. You will be forced to implement new routines. Sony will become your life. You will be tired. (Large portions of this branch rely on stimulants to maintain active lifestyles, while others imbibe depressants to deaden the pain standing still for 12 hours will initially cause). Sadly. Until you quit. Be sure to give notice. (Also: Layoffs are frequent after the Holiday seasons have passed.)

The pay is minimal: $9.00-$10.00 per hour (depending on your agency.) The work is simple assembly and post-fab production. The process is monotonous, and inactivity is constant. The position is not recommended for those suffering from any Back Problems or Physical Ailments.

Line Leads can, and will, be ruthless. The scaling systems and matrices used in the SPA rely on - Graded Speed, Production Estimates, – more... and Output to determine a casual percentage which will reflect the Leads ability to maintain stable production at speed. Usually, the typical employee is a "pair of hands". If you can't maintain proper speed (100%-125%), you will be moved.

I would advise you to stay away, but if steady income is your priority, then this position may be for you. Overtime Days are abundant (and often mandatory.) Opportunities for promotion, though few and far between, are possible.

Frankly, this industry cannot sustain itself. Digital distribution has dated physical products (DVD, Blu-Ray, CD). Still, if you need cash, Sony DADC will hire anyone (through Temp Services). They always need fodder. – less
