    Assistant Product Marketing Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Samsung Electronics America (Ridgefield Park, NJ) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I learned about the position when an HR rep (who I had spoken to months earlier) called me because my resume aligned with the skills required. Shortly after, I had a phone interview with the hiring managers - basic intro questions. I was then invited for an in person interview where I met with 5-6 VP or above level personnel within the Home Appliances business unit. All were incredibly personable and easy to talk to. They asked standard behavioral interview questions in order to better understand my experiences. After all the interviews, I was told that the team would get back to me within the week. And this is where the lack of professionalism, in my opinion, truly began. HR did indeed get back to me a few days later saying "Just wanted to ask you to hang tight….[ ] is very interested in moving forward with you. He just has a few things to iron out." That seemed quite promising so I patiently waited. After several days of no response, I reached out and was told that no decision had been made. Two weeks later I was told that they still wanted to interview another candidate. Two weeks after that, I was told that they still had to interview this candidate. Then the story was that an internal candidate was considering the role. Then he wasn't. Then it was down to me and another candidate. Then about 2 months after my original interview, I was told I had to interview again. (A mix of the same people and some more junior staff). About a month after this second interview, I finally received a verbal offer, after more tedious back and forth. After the HR rep called to offer me the position, she emailed me about salary expectations. This is when I learned that the offer was significantly below comps (low 80's) and below a competing offer I had recently received. HR made it clear that they could not offer significantly more. I informed the team that I wanted to understand the full offer before I made a decision as salary alone would not have been a deal breaker for me. The written offer never came (just an email saying, [ ] is out on vacation, sorry! ) even after informing them of my other deadline. About a week later I received a call, no VM. A few days later an email telling me that the team had decided to begin a new search. So after months of stringing me along, giving me false deadlines, having zero respect for my openingly communicated deadlines, and giving me a verbal offer, I ended up with no offer? Thank goodness I had a better offer somewhere else!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Samsung Electronics America (San Diego, CA) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I applied for the job directly on Samsung's website and got a call for an interview within 2 to 3 weeks of application.

    Interview was scheduled quickly over the phone, within 2 days of the call.

    Samsung was very professional. All the correct information was provided so I would know who I was going to speak to and the office staff were very professional.

    Went in for the interview with the HR representative who asked me some basic behavioral and typical questions then spoke to a member of the team I would be working for and the director of the departments it was within.

    I got an email to get to the second stage on the same day, which was to take an extremely simple Excel test through their temp agency (the position is a temp position, and it seems most of the employees were hired in that manner).

    I was hired the week after and went to fill out the paper work, starting the week after that.

    Overall, the process since application took about 4 weeks.
