    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Samsung Group.

    Interview Details

    Applied in the college career fair, it took several weeks to get back to me. There are 2 rounds of phone interview, and coming after that is 1 onsite interview. It's located in south bay area. The interviews are not so difficult. One need to be very familiar with what's listed on the resume. Moreover, some basic programming questions and knowledge questions are also asked. The onsite process is long, so have a good sleep before it comes!

    Staff Physical Design Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Samsung Group in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    The director of GPU had my resume through their staffing and had an hour of telephonic interview - mainly going over my resume and finding my strength and weakness. He also gave a broad level goal/objective of his team. I was invited for onsite. I was really impressed by the depth and breadth of the team and one of the most technically brilliant set of people I have ever met in my interviews. The interviews were extremely technical and most of the time it was two-way discussions. Also the demeanor of the Director was very modest and most of the interviewing guys spoke very highly of him. In a nutshell, my experience was very satisfying.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Samsung Group in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    Not sure about the title yet to be honest ... but I was interviewed for that center. Interview was first a screening process through the University and then an over video interview with employees in Seoul. I had to prepare a 10 slide powerpoint about my research/leadership experiences and include a few slides about my career goals. The interview itself felt relatively easy, albeit most interviews feel simple. I think the format they had allowed me to showcase myself a lot more than in other companies

    Negotiation Details
    Currently going through that since i got the offer two days ago. I don't plan to negotiate much other than ask, if possible, to live in Itaewon since a lot of my Korean friends live in the area and have suggested that I go there. I might also ask them about the Korea classes and if they have any language certication courses that I can start taking online. Pretty excited :D
