I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Samsung Group (Memphis, TN) in July 2015.
July 2015 Contacted via (Step 1) recruiter, (Step 2) Interviewed with a peer-District Manager, (Step 3) Interviewed with the actual District Manager that would be my boss, (Step 4) Interviewed with Human Resources Manager, total 4 and a half weeks, (Step 5) didn't receive a call from the Sales Director, which would have been my final interview. Samsung culture and interview process is behavioral based, laced with plenty of "Tell me about a time" questions. Questions are best answered in STAR format and are competency based. Although the entire process was pretty straight forward and organized, a few individuals(interviewers) lacked real information about the actual role other then the District Manager(s). This position is not to be confused with Samsung's Field Sales Manager positions or District Manager positions. The Market Manager or Field Market Manager positions are responsible for all Samsung Bestbuy in-store Experience programs. Your market will consist of between 7-15 locations, along with Bestbuy Mobile locations. You will have to use your own vehicle and Samsung with pay for gas mileage. The Range for this position from my understanding via recruiter was between $65,000-$70,000, come to find out it is more so between $50,000-$56,000. The Role itself along with the responsibility and salary are FAR below any industry standard I have seen. This role clearly should range between $75k-$85k and that is including a company car. I was disappointed after going through several processes just to find out that the salary was much lower then discussed in the pre-screening interview and that happen to be placed clearly on my application location in the salary desired box. The entire process lasted 1 entire month and a week, I literally had to contact the recruiter to find out towards the end, if I still was being considered for the opportunity. The job was reposted today Sept 4,2015

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Samsung Group (Milpitas, CA) in July 2015.
Had two telephone screens and then six onsite interviews. Questions were easy except one interviewer who was really smart and had good knowledge of file systems. Basic algorithm, operating systems questions. This position was for research group in flash space.
- One of the interviewer was surprised to know templates in C++ provide polymorphism. His reaction was "huh". Another interviewer's idea of LRU was MRU. After I politely tried correcting he didn't seem to be happy and stayed for next interview in room doing some verifications on his computer only to say in the end "I have seen many implementations" etc. Multiple red flags so decided to pass the offer. Answer Question
Reasons for Declining
As described in questions multiple red flags so decided to pass the offer.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Samsung Group (Austin, TX) in May 2015.
I received an email from recruiter saying they were interested in me. A couple of days afterwards, I had a 1hr long phone interview which cover computer architecture and modeling basics. I was then invited to a on-site interview, which I can honestly say was the most ridiculous interview i have ever had. The schedule had 13 slots from 8pm to 5:45pm: 10 regular interviews, 1 lunch interview, 2 meetings with the recruiter. This is borderline inappropriate! I felt like a slave (no kidding). At some point I was so tired I asked for a soda and couldn't get one cause I didn't have cash for their vending machines, and the interviewer didn't have cash either so he just shrugged and said to go back to the interview room. Moreover, several friends have applied to the same team and expressed similar stories, so this is not unique to my interview. Everybody seemed uptight, they wanted to get right into their technical questions and didn't care to get to interact with me first. My guess is this is derived from management and/or culture at Samsung (not necessarily the interviewers were uptight engineers themselves). I actually wondered after finishing the interview who on earth would wanna work in a culture like that. I guess if its your only offer you would? I did well on ~9 out of the 11 interviews (the other 2 I did well but didn't aced them). Interviews were definitely above average difficulty tho.

The interview process was great. The team members who interviewed me where all engaged in the interview and asked interesting questions. They followed up after the interview personally even though someone else got the job. That was a nice gesture.
