Market Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Memphis, TN

Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Samsung Group (Memphis, TN) in July 2015.

Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Samsung Group (São Paulo, São Paulo (Brazil)) in August 2012.

    Interview

    Interviewing process was very fast, and from first contact to the formal proposal it took lass than 3 weeks. HR people are very nice and professional. However, despite the company's job structure is very similar across the different BUs, HR personnel had a minimum understanding of the job roles and responsibilities.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Samsung Group (Sydney (Australia)) in July 2012.

    Interview

    Recruiter first, then HR, then line Manager. Presentation was required. Process was very quick and efficient. Samsung moves quickly through things. Presentation was taken seriously so invest adequate time here. Line Manager is key but HR still influential and are the gate keeper. HR more interested in motivations and examples of results.
