    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Samsung Austin Semiconductor (Austin, TX) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I met with recruiters from SAS at a job fair in Jan. I gave them recruiters my resume and they provided me with the POC for HR about the position. I contacted the HR recruiter and soon as the job was posted on the Samsung Career website they let me know and I applied for it.

    I applied for the job in mid Feb. and a few weeks later I received a email to set up an onsite visit and interview in Austin at SAS, when I arrived I had to be checked in and escorted around the facility. I met with the HR recruiter and we sat for about 15 mins to go over some paperwork I was told to bring.

    After that I met with a panel and the interview wasn't bad at all it was laid back and they basically asked me questions about my military experience, my resume, and behavioral questions took about an 1-2 hour.

    Process Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Samsung Austin Semiconductor (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    I had a short meeting with an HR rep followed by a panel interview. That didn't go well, to put it mildly. Technical questions were easy and trivial however the personal ones were another story. I'm used to working in a male-dominated field and I'm often the only woman in a meeting room however nothing prepared me for a blatantly rude treatment I faced at Samsung.
    The interviewers asked many inappropriate and borderline discriminatory questions such as whether my husband agreed to move to Austin. The potential manager (an American, mind you) asked how many kids do I have. This left me wondering what kind of job I was interviewed for.
    Also, couple more things. They require you to submit a recent pay stub as a part of an application. I did because my pay is at the top of the grade. They couldn't match it, by the way. They needed to make a hire ASAP however they could only schedule a flight for an on-site interview in 2 weeks because of some silly company policy on advance ticket booking.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Samsung Austin Semiconductor (Austin, TX) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Got contacted by a recruiter.
    Had an initial phone screen where questions were asked about my current job, the experience I had received that were applicable to the job I applied for and some behavioral questions as well. (Nothing too difficult.
    Next, I was scheduled for a phone screen with the engineering manager and a second senior engineer on the team I was joining. The interview was for about 30 minutes and was of average difficulty. It was a mixture of technical and behavioral questions.
    Immediately after the phone interview I was informed that they would like to bring me onsite. Which they booked for 3 weeks ahead.
    The onsite interview was two hours long. The first hour was from a battery of four senior engineers in the group. A lot of technical questions (nothing too difficult) and some behavioral questions.
    Second hour was with a couple of senior managers. In the second hour, the managers mostly asked behavioral questions.
