Field Sales Manager Interview

Field Sales Manager

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Samsung Group in April 2014.

Interview Details – I was contacted by a corporate recruiter who stated that I would be contacted for a phone interview. That never happened and only after three emails did I embarrass the recruiter enough to get a response after suggesting that the posiiton was filled. If the recruiter was an example of the company culture, I would never work for Samsung and consider myself fortunate for not getting more involved. What a dissapointing JOKE!

Associate (Post MBA) At Strategy Group Interview

Associate (Post MBA) At Strategy Group
Chicago, IL

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Samsung Group in November 2013.

Interview Details – I was interviewed on campus during the second year of my MBA program for the Associate position at the Strategy group in Seoul, South Korea. The first round was straightforward and focused mostly on fit. I was asked Why Samsung? Why this particular group, where I want to be after 2 years in the program (which Samsung group, why). The fit also focused on Korean culture, so applicants should read up on business culture in Korea, how it is different from the US, Europe and what kind of difficulties one might expect to encounter in settling down there. The second round consisted of a presentation and a case. Both were rather easy and consisted of very broad topics - again, in my opinion the succesfull applicants were mostly selected on fit and their interest in Korea.

Interview Question – How is Korean business culture different from the US, Europe?   Answer Question

Global Strategy Group Interview

Global Strategy Group
Boston, MA

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Samsung Group in January 2012.

Interview Details – Samsung is really looking for fit when it hires overseas. The interviews are focused on two rounds:
The first is a pure fit interview with at least one Korean HR representative and one member of the GSG. Questions include 'why Samsung', 'why Korea', 'which businesses would you be most interested in'. They really want to make sure you understand the Samsung and broader Korean culture.
The second is a case interview that is really quite simple compared with consulting case interviews.

Interview Question – Tell us about how you succeeded in a culture that was completely different from you own.   Answer Question
