    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore (India)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore (India)
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Samsung Group in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview was for a position in Samsung information systems, Bangalore. Earlier I was interviewed (6 months ago) by Samsung India software operations and I was not offered the job. SISO interview was extremely easy (fresher level C qsn) but after a few questions, I was asked questions in Linux, like the API prototype for message passing, bash commands, makefiles and such even though I had mentioned I had not worked on Linux. The interviewer was was very specific that I know those things and apparently any expertise in OS concepts in general like synchronization, file systems, virtual memory and such seemed of no importance at all. It got me thinking that if I should really join a team that places so much emphasis on code and not on algos/concepts.

    This time,for Samsung information systems, Bangalore, the HR called me and sent me an interesting job description saying that they were looking for people good in 2D games, graphics, algos and problem solving. I told her that last time I was shortlisted for requirement that did not match my skill set and I wanted her to be sure this time regarding the requirements. I had 1 round of F2F interview after which the manager came and told me that the job requirement was for device drivers and was reluctant to take my interview. He had a very unprofessional behavior and asked me completely nonsense questions for which he also did not know any answer. when leaving I got completely frustrated and decided never to give a damn for this company. Few days later the HR tried calling but I did not respond to her.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Samsung Group in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    There was an Aptitude Test to begin with. It was pretty easy. The shortlisted candidates were asked to sit for a Technical Test which consisted of C Questions - all multiple choice. This one was slightly tricky as you required speed and accuracy. There was negative marking for wrong answers.
    Following that, they shortlisted 12 candidates, all of whom had to go through technical and HR rounds.
