    I have been working at Samsung Austin Semiconductor full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    As many have mentioned, pay, bonuses, benefits (health insurance, 401k, etc.) are all excellent. On site gym and cafeteria $$$ to spend to buy your lunch is good too. The community invovlement that the organization has is important to me, and I have enjoyed helping out where I can. They started a womens group this year too, where the women of Samsung can get together and network and talk which has been great.

    Cons

    Work/Life balance is a challenge in certain departments and areas. People work long hours. But most everyone can take PTO when needed or wanted. I have concerns over management in my area....new manager does not know how to manage people. Was a good engineer, but bad manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your managers earlier - maybe before they become managers. Communicate better to those of us on the floor...we want to know what is going on.

    Process Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Austin, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Samsung Austin Semiconductor in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through their website. After a month I was contacted by phone from one of the equipment engineers. Had a brief discussion about my resume and then was told I would be contacted by HR to set up on-site or Skype interview. About a week and a half later, HR emailed to set up an initial phone screening. During the phone call, they asked some basic screening questions, (why do you want to work here, why leaving, renting or own a home, how did I learn about the job, salary expectations.) At the end I was asked whether I wanted to come in for a on-site or Skype interview, so I said on-site. Scheduled the trip for 3 weeks later. Was flown in the night before, and had interview next morning, and flew back that evening. The interview consisted of 2 panels of 3 people each, roughly 45 mins each panel. It was senior engineers and one senior manager. The hiring manager wasn't there which seemed off. Mostly behavioral based questions and questions about my resume. Was told that I would be contacted in about a week to say whether or not I got the job. About a week and half later, got an email saying I wasn't selected.
