Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Samsung Group.

Interview Details – Applied in the college career fair, it took several weeks to get back to me. There are 2 rounds of phone interview, and coming after that is 1 onsite interview. It's located in south bay area. The interviews are not so difficult. One need to be very familiar with what's listed on the resume. Moreover, some basic programming questions and knowledge questions are also asked. The onsite process is long, so have a good sleep before it comes!

Interview Question – A search question which uses recursion   Answer Question

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Chandigarh (India)

I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Samsung Group in January 2012.

Interview Details – Hiring and interview process is pathetic, first they will hire any domain person and then you will work for few months on that domain, and later they will put you in some other domain project. Managment is very partial, favorites are given good ratings, hard work and honesty not recognized

Interview Question – Do not think of joining Smasung Noida, because it is brand name and only good company in north india with decent pay, once joined, you will cry due to bad work, culture, new firing policy in the name test(technical evalution) on montly basis, so can be any time be fired   Answer Question
