    Global Production Technology Intern (?) In Korea Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Samsung Group in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    Not sure about the title yet to be honest ... but I was interviewed for that center. Interview was first a screening process through the University and then an over video interview with employees in Seoul. I had to prepare a 10 slide powerpoint about my research/leadership experiences and include a few slides about my career goals. The interview itself felt relatively easy, albeit most interviews feel simple. I think the format they had allowed me to showcase myself a lot more than in other companies

    Negotiation Details
    Currently going through that since i got the offer two days ago. I don't plan to negotiate much other than ask, if possible, to live in Itaewon since a lot of my Korean friends live in the area and have suggested that I go there. I might also ask them about the Korea classes and if they have any language certication courses that I can start taking online. Pretty excited :D

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Samsung Group in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was connected by a friend for an interview for the San Diego branch. The HR manager called me and we did a phone interview and he scheduled for an official interview. He was very polite and informative. I did have a couple friends who used to work there but quit say that the head manager is very difficult to work with but I disregarded those rumors. The interview was divided by an English speaking part and Korean speaking part.

    Director Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Samsung Group in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    I went in for multiple interviews. Each time, the recruiter was late coming to get me from lobby. The questions from the interview panel were canned and awkward. Everything seemed disjointed, which should have been a red flag for what it was going to be like. Also, they tried to be as open as possible about the environment.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Samsung Group in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    Samsung is really looking for fit when it hires overseas. The interviews are focused on two rounds:
    The first is a pure fit interview with at least one Korean HR representative and one member of the GSG. Questions include 'why Samsung', 'why Korea', 'which businesses would you be most interested in'. They really want to make sure you understand the Samsung and broader Korean culture.
    The second is a case interview that is really quite simple compared with consulting case interviews.
