    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Samsung Austin Semiconductor (Austin, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Easy going interviews... Do a little research about Samsung AS before you apply please. Nothing is more annoying to the interviewers than someone who comes in and is like "oh my goodness I applied here because I just love samsung products, weeee! I love the idea of assembling phones and refigerators!"

    Just sell yourself, give specific examples of how you have done something at work or in school similar to what they are asking you. Don't be afraid to ask them questions!!!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Samsung Austin Semiconductor in May 2015.

    Interview

    The first interview was held at my college, then a second onsite. There wasn't really any technical questions, but rather just telling about past projects and judging of character. How well you'll communicate and work in a group, how you handle group conflicts, how you handle failure, how you handle a Kobayashi Maru scenario. There were two guys who handled the interview, neither of whom seemed all that excited about it. They were also trying to gauge how well you work in a fast paced environment.
