Process Engineer Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Samsung Group in February 2009.
Interview Details – Submitted my resume through University job fair and got a call a few days later regarding an onsite interview. I guess the reason is I was at the same city of the company. Went there and interview with 10-15 other candidates. I was asked to stay for more questions. I thought this is a good sign then I got the toughest question ever. I guess I handled it very well because within a week, they offered me a position. Not the one I applied for though. They wanted me to join a research group instead being an engineer in the company.
