- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks – interviewed at Samsung Group (San Jose, CA) in November 2012.
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
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

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Samsung Group (San Jose, CA) in October 2012.
Interview with the recruiter over the phone. Interview with the account manager over the phone. After that three onsite interviews with the hiring manager, supervisor and a group interview. After that professional reference check and a background check that takes about another week or so. Interviewed for one position in all interviews, when recruiter called with the offer it was for the same group and for entirely different job.

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at Samsung Group (San Jose, CA) in October 2010.
They take the phone interview first. For me they took two rounds of phone interview. Called for onsite interview but could not give me the interview decision for a long time. I am still waiting for last couple of months. I didn't see anything like that. They also doesn't seem to know what other Samsung side is doing.

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Samsung Group (San Jose, CA) in June 2010.
For the 1st onsite interview, I need to finish a written C-Test. It took about 90 minutes. Then, 2 senior engineers asked me some technical questions (C++, Java), and some algorithm questions. For the 2nd onsite interview, I talked to 1 Director of RD and then a senior engineer. Same thing, C++/Java/Linked-list questions. For the 3rd interview, I talked to their VP of RD. Some C++/Java/Algorithm questions, even let me answer 2 questions at home(since I don't know the answer during the interview). But, it turned out, they still not giving me an offer.
