    Summer Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Samsung Austin Semiconductor.

    Interview

    Got flown in for an on-site interview after a short phone interview. Phone interview was short and simple, just want to hear about why you are interested as well as a few behavior questions. On-site interview was about 40 minutes, interviewed in a room by three people, 2 engineers and 1 human resources person. They have a set list of questions and ask a lot about contents of your resume (if you have project experience they WILL ask you to explain it in detail). After the basic questions it becomes much more conversational, have questions ready for them at the end, they expect it.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Samsung Austin Semiconductor (Austin, TX) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I attended a job fair with multiple open positions. I was given application to fill out, which you were expected to specify a position/area to apply for, so it is helpful to already have that information. I then turned in the application & resume and waited for an interview. There was a large turnout so my wait was 1 hour, but some people had to wait longer to only be sent home without interviewing. The HR personnel and hiring managers were extremely nice. I found the interview to be very comfortable.

    Integration Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Samsung Austin Semiconductor in November 2012.

    Interview

    I thought the team I interviewed was rather unfriendly - which is strange because I know a lot of people at Samsung that are really great and friendly to work with. Anyway, they wouldn't even introduce themselves before asking me questions - and one guy was like 'Is that all you did in your last job?'. Rude. So glad i didn't get the offer.
