Human Resources Interview

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Samsung Electronics America in January 2014.

Interview Details – SEA USA HQ recruiting unresponsive and unprofessional

Contacted by a recruiter in Chicago for HR jobs that he was not able to specifically convey. After a 1 hour very transparent and open chat with him, in part of the Samsung state of the HR/Talent union, I had reservations about proceeding due to organizxational culture and climate issues as well as integrated and shared vision with HQ Talent/HR in Asia, but was willing to explore further.

He forwarded me to (yet) another recruiter at USA HQ in Jersey, one closer both in knowledge and proximity to the Hiring Manager--a titled rotational assignment of VP in HR/Talent who, according to his profile, was in a rotational role for over 2 years (unusual) and prior to that 11 years as an HRM. When I looked him up on linked in, I saw only a reference of an HR Director for 11 years at one facility. More seeming red flags.

I was eventually contacted by the 2nd recruiter, asked for availability, provided it and after said dates transpired, finally received a response on a Thrusday indicating it had been a "bad week how about Monday" So much for seamless to the candidate. I responded immediately with an understanding tone and said Monday would be fine. I was awaiting a response but never got one. So late Monday morning I again inquired with a friendly and inquisitive tone.

I expressed some of my scheduling complications and a question about in-house or 3rd party recruiting to my first recruiter as he told me that although my primary contact was the 2nd recruiter, to contact him if I had questions. Later on I received an unexpected apology from the 2nd recruiter with a statement: "I have a very good reputation as both a recruiter and a professional not only with Samsung but throughout my career." which I perceived as a "call out", unprofessional, unnecessary and just short of insulting.

The interview ensued with more apologies but the negative tone was already set. I had somehow landed in an internal politics game and a potentially insecure recruiter.

Interviewed at Samsung Electronics America

Interview Details – the hiring process was not as efficient as I would have thought. But through a couple hiccups I was able to get all my information submitted to the correct place is. The problem is there are no local offices unless you live in Korea or Texas. the interview itself consisted of two over the phone interviews and both were very easy and not intimidating.

Interview Question – If you had to relate to any superhero who would it be, why, and how would that apply to your position.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – negotiation itself wasn't very necessary. The starting pay was good and the hours for me were great.
