Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee

The process took 2 months - interviewed at Samsung Information Systems America.

Interview Details – A friend recommended me and the discussion began with a phone interview with the hiring manager. The phone interview was about 45 mins long. A couple of weeks after the phone interview I meet with the hiring manager for a 1:1 in person interview. A couple of weeks after that I was bought in to interview with 6 people.

Interview Question – Part of the interview process was to present to the team my prior work. As an analyst, my prior work is all proprietary and confidential. So instead I presented my general work process. That worked okay.   Answer Question

Easy Interview

Director Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online - interviewed at Samsung Information Systems America in November 2009.

Interview Details – The usual. You submit online and your applications goes in a whole. You don't hear from HR. When you finally get a call, months later, they don't respond when you follow up. You finally get a call but only because someone quit and all of a sudden, they need you. If you're from G, A, F, L or MS, they treat you better because you're an A employee, and HR gets bonus points for hooking you in.

Interview Question – I was lucky because I didn't have to be interviewed by HQ. It has happened that you can get an offer from SJ, only to have the offer revoked because HQ disagrees, based on what school you went to and what company you worked for. They are completely hung up on credentials.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Unless you're from from G, A, F, L or MS, it's pretty much take it or leave it.
