    Engineer III Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Samsung Austin Semiconductor in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    Worked with a recruiter. Lined up my interview on a particular day. Samsung flew me out to Austin, provided me a rental car, hotel, and meals. The day of the interview they had a number of interviews lined up. In the morning they provided a simple breakfast during which time you started filling out an application. Then came the first interview. That interview did not go well, nor do I remember much of it - it was with a team I didn't care for. After that was another interview with a team I was interested in. The mood of that interview was much lighter and friendly. Though they asked difficult questions, it wasn't an interrogation. For lunch Samsung provided a nice spread and had interviewers join us so we could ask more relaxed questions. Following lunch I was invited on a field walk where I got to see many interesting things and peaked my interest to work for Samsung. Overall, the atmosphere was friendly and professional after that first interview.

    I told the recruiter the salary I was looking for. They offered me $1,000 less than my offer. Since I had over-shot my original offer, I accepted. From interview to offer to acceptance took five days tops.

    CORP Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Samsung Austin Semiconductor in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    I got an email from somebody at my university career center that Samsung Austin Semiconductor were hiring for the CORP 2011 Engineer 1 positions. I applied online on Samsung's website and received an email about 2 hours later from a recruiter saying she would call me later that day. An hour later, I got a call from her. She explained the CORP program and then asked me 4-5 behavioral interview questions. I wasn't expecting an interview, but I did well anyways. She called the next day asking if I would be in Austin the following week. I said yes since I live there. Got an email on Monday regarding the scheduling of the event (dinner and interviewing).

    Thursday night was a dinner at a local restaurant. Got to meet with about 30 other candidates who applied and passed the first round phone interviews as well as several employees from Samsung Austin Semiconductor. Spoke about the work environment, positions, how the CORP program works, and just general information about the company.

    Then Friday morning they had a presentation about the company, the different positions, Samsung's achievements and goals, etc. Then there was a group interview (3 candidates together)...this was basically a group activity. It was my first time doing such a thing and I enjoyed it. Then there was a personal interview (me with 3 Samsung employees). Mostly behavioral questions and questions about past experiences and coursework. Then there was a tour of the facilities and a fab tour.

    Overall, the interview experience was great and the whole hiring event was very enjoyable and informative. I learned a lot about the company and felt like I would love to work for them.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Samsung Austin Semiconductor in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    Overall a good interview experience. Employees were welcoming and provided a fair amount of detailed information about the company. Interview consisted of a group/panel interview and a team exercise. Interview was not very technically-intensive and was more centered around soft skills. For new grads, a lot of studying is not needed to be successful in an interview with Samsung, I would recommend thinking of examples where you work well with others as a good way of preparing for this interview.
