Engineer Interview

Engineer
Austin, TX

I applied online and the process took 8 weeks - interviewed at Samsung Austin Semiconductor in November 2013.

Interview Details – Had multiple phone interviews, then in person interview with HR, then panel interview with multiple supervisors & team members. The interview was primarily behavioral, with surprisingly little concentration on technical matters.

The long hours involved were mentioned multiple times, and when combined with the stories told to me by former employees, it was clear that there is no such thing as work-life balance there. My discussions with HR regarding compensation indicate that I would be taking a pretty severe cut in $/hr, even if I got a significant overall increase in salary.

Integration Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Samsung Austin Semiconductor in November 2012.

Interview Details – I thought the team I interviewed was rather unfriendly - which is strange because I know a lot of people at Samsung that are really great and friendly to work with. Anyway, they wouldn't even introduce themselves before asking me questions - and one guy was like 'Is that all you did in your last job?'. Rude. So glad i didn't get the offer.

Interview Question – What is defined in a timing library file?   Answer Question
