Product Marketing Manager (Mobile Division) Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through other source and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Samsung Group in December 2013.
Interview Details – HORRIBLE - basically was instructed to fill out a super long form asking the standard Thai invasive questions and the remainder of the questions answers were already in my C.V. The form setup is horrible as well, as it gives you like less than half a row's space to describe your job responsibility!!!
The HR lady (quite senior I believe) speeded through my interview in 15 mins (shorter than it took to actually fill out the form) - and questions asked were very trite and I dont beleive as an HR, she was getting to know me or my "soft skill" side at all. She said she would call me back if the Manager was interested, and i never heard from them again, even after a follow up, though I felt very qualified for the position.
Interview Question – None. Just standard. She asked "What role and product do you want to oversee?" ... my answer was the position I am interviewing for (otherwise, why would I be there?!") View Answer
Intern Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Samsung Group in December 2012.
Interview Details – Samsung Electronics Device Solutions; for international students in South Korea.
First step was to fill out an application form (including a cover letter where they already tell you about what you should write, i.e. relationship, pros and cons, etc.) and make a 3 min video answering 3 questions:
- Why did you choose to come to Korea?
- What do you like the most in Korea?
- Why did you apply for the Samsung Electronics Internship Program?
Next step was an interview at Samsung. All the applicants were divided into 2 days and then one after the other had the interview. There were also 2 teams interviewing. Before you enter the room they watched your video and then you sat in front of 4 people. It looked like a examination but I felt comfortable in there.
After that you receive an email whether you are accepted or not.
Interview Question – Where do you see yourself in 10 years? - Answer. - Okay. And where do you see yourself in 30 years?
Some specific questions about my field (Industrial Engineering) "Can you explain the Taguchi Method?"
And the most important question "Can you imagine working for Samsung after you graduate?" - Definitely, yes! Answer Question
