Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed 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!

Process Engineer Interview

Process Engineer

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.

Interview Question – Your background does not fit this job description. Do you think you are wasting your time here?   View Answers (2)

Reason for Declining – At the time, I wanna pursue a high degree so I turned down their offer.

Director Interview

Director

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 6 months - interviewed at Samsung Group in March 2012.

Interview Details – I went in for multiple interviews. Each time, the recruiter was late coming to get me from lobby. The questions from the interview panel were canned and awkward. Everything seemed disjointed, which should have been a red flag for what it was going to be like. Also, they tried to be as open as possible about the environment.

Interview Question – I was asked my age by a Korean dispatcher.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was very little negotiation. The offer was fair.
