    Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ridgefield Park, Bergen, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ridgefield Park, Bergen, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Samsung Electronics America in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was brought in by a personal connection, someone I worked with at another company, someone I respect a lot. I met with 3 people in recruiting including the Recruiting Manager. I took 3 hours out of my day and lost work time to interview for this contract recruiter role. I sent them each a follow-up email to thank them for the interview.

    I never heard back. Not one word. The WORST candidate-care I have ever seen. For shame Samsung Electronics. Not only have you lost a potential Samsung customer forever, but you have managed to help create your own bad reputation for the candidate experience.

    Interview Questions
    • Each interviewer repeated the exact same questions. What's your process? What's the most difficult position you have ever tried to fill and why was it difficult? Some behavioral questions, but overall unoriginal and repeat, repeat, repeat.   Answer Question

    Two round phone interviews. First one mainly talked about some simple questions and projects( swapping, sorting, median number).

And a week later, got a second phone interview mainly about projects with a small design question about LRU cache. Very soon after that I got an internship offer.

    Interview Questions
    • 1. Simple algorithm questions about swapping, sorting
      2. How to find the median number in a large static array.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Samsung Electronics America in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was invited by a friend to submit my portfolio work. There was a three step process: I first prepared and submitted in digital form and then was invited into the studio to show the work in person and any print pieces. And finally, I was asked to come back and be interviewed over video conference with Headquarters office in Seoul, Korea.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question to answer was what was my personal vision in my work. I had a perspective and answered the question easily enough but being fairly new to the type of work that I was applying for I felt like I couldn't really answer the question thoroughly as I probably would've now.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiation phase was pretty painless...I made an offer of what I thought would be fair but was given a counter-offer that was a little lower than I wanted to make but my manager was pretty good at pointing out what the trade-off would be and how I could benefit from the experience. It made sense and I decided that he was worth working with—which he was.
