I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Samsung Electronics America in December 2014.
Recruiter reached out to me via LinkedIn and set up a phone interview. Was left very confused as to what the role entailed. Recruiter started off by telling me what I read in the job description, so to me it didn't feel like a natural conversation. Asked me about 3-4 very basic questions and wanted to set a time with hiring manger.
- What do you like about sales? Answer Question

I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Samsung Electronics America (Bridgewater, NJ) in December 2014.
3 rounds. There were 1 coding, 1 design and 1 HR round. They asked about Android and data structures mainly. 1. Android handlers, Async Task. 2. Questions related to telephony and data connection in android mobile. 3. BST and LinkedList problems. If you have any android telephony exp earlier will be an advantage. Not a difficult interview. All the best.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Samsung Electronics America in December 2014.
1. Call from recruiter to set time for interview 2. Interview with recruiter & hiring manager(s) the same day 3. Interview with upper management (Director and VPs). This interview is the deal breaker, so make sure to know all the details on your resume. Skill tests with Excel might get tested during this interview.
- Excel test with an interview in upper management. Answer Question
Not much room to negotiate, but still possible.

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Samsung Electronics America in December 2014.
The process took a long time - initial phone interviews by the recruiter and manager. Then one more with the boss' boss. Now here is the issue - these guys act arrogant. They want to know how much you make currently without telling you how much they will offer. They will not proceed until you tell them how much you make. Additionally, they act very arrogant. The recruiter - was very direct and almost as if she did not care about you as a human being. The boss's boss did not show up TWICE for the phone interview, the third time he was 25 minutes late. They do not value you , your time or your experience. Unless you are of a certain ethnicity or if you know someone inside the company, you are at a disadvantage. Stay away!!!!

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Samsung Electronics America in October 2014.
Call with internal recruiter; call with team member; call with hiring manager - VP Sales, Enterprise Business; call with Director, SEA. Flown to NJ office for a 1 hr interview and panel presentation to 4 ppl including hiring manager and 3 Directors. I have an extensive healthcare background with a minimal technology background and was candid about this. All calls went well and then I received the invitation to give a presentation to a panel. What they requested for the presentation was way overboard (see full description below). They essentially wanted me to learn all their technology prior to being hired. I easily put in 40 hours of work into this in the 4 days they gave me to put it together. I created a 20 slide power point, purchased and learned their tablet, researched every point in their presentation topic. I had run through my presentation 3 times prior to delivering it but used note cards during it because, as mentioned, this technology was all new to me. I was asked if I always used note cards when presenting and there was a comment that it sounded like I was giving a speech. I was quizzed on details of the technology that it wasn't reasonable for me to know given my background. All four people I was presenting to made it clear they weren't impressed. I had no doubt upon exiting the room that it would be going no further. All in all this was a very unpleasant interview experience. Either they should have done a better job vetting me prior to inviting me to present to the panel or they should have accepted my technical background was limited. Either way no potential employer should make you jump through these kind of hoops when they are not yet paying you. On a side note, the one team member I spoke with commented that it was the worse work-life balance he had ever experienced.
- Had to give a presentation to the panel on: Presentation topic: Create a customized 30 minute presentation outlining the following areas • Enterprise Market demand for Smartphones and Tablets (consider both Corporate Liable and BYOD)** • Overview of Samsung’s mobile portfolio including SAFE (Samsung Approved For Enterprise) • The value of Samsung and SAFE to a Named Account of your choice • Potential use cases and pilot opportunities • Proposed engagement models (consider alternative revenue and funding concepts to offset cost of devices) **Make sure to highlight areas of challenge and opportunity for enterprise customers. Also, offer potential solutions (at the highest level) to address the challenges. Please be prepared to answer questions regarding the features of Samsung’s smartphones and tablets including SAFE, the go to market strategy and the proposed opportunity engagement process. Audience: The 'Interview Team' that will be in attendance will represent what would normally be encountered in a typical Named Account meeting - CIO/CTO, IT Services etc. Goal: Educate the prospective customers on the Samsung’s Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab, Safe and KNOX, propositions (why should the named account company want to buy Samsung products) and outline a clear engagement/support model for near and long-term opportunities. 1 Answer

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Samsung Electronics America (San Francisco, CA) in October 2014.
four interviews with eight people over 3 months, very disorganized. No professional HR involvement until offer stage. Interviewers did not seem to be talking to one another and asked the same questions.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Samsung Electronics America (San Diego, CA) in September 2014.
I applied for the job directly on Samsung's website and got a call for an interview within 2 to 3 weeks of application. Interview was scheduled quickly over the phone, within 2 days of the call. Samsung was very professional. All the correct information was provided so I would know who I was going to speak to and the office staff were very professional. Went in for the interview with the HR representative who asked me some basic behavioral and typical questions then spoke to a member of the team I would be working for and the director of the departments it was within. I got an email to get to the second stage on the same day, which was to take an extremely simple Excel test through their temp agency (the position is a temp position, and it seems most of the employees were hired in that manner). I was hired the week after and went to fill out the paper work, starting the week after that. Overall, the process since application took about 4 weeks.

Many.. working for this company means you are visitor to Korea and will leave after sometime. Everything is controlled from Korea HQ.. you will not have freedom to come up with good soln you need to depend on korea for everything and hey wait if you are coming to this company then make sure you learn korean otherwise life will be difficult. In meeting people start talking in korean and you will look stupid and most of the documentation you get is also either poorly translated in English or they simply ignore your request to share document..

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Samsung Electronics America (Colorado Springs, CO) in August 2014.
Hiring went through east ridge staffing. After applying I heard from east ridge about a week later as a screening call then took another week to get the interview scheduled. When interviewing with the District Manager he didn't ask any questions relating to the position other than leadership or ask about prior experience. He was distracted the entire time and barely paying attention.

Fairly simple hiring process included recruiter screening, video audition, and final hiring manger interview. Most questions asked needed answer in standard STAR format. All stages of the hiring process went smoothly and everyone was very helpful along the way.
