    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Samsung Electronics America in April 2017.

    Interview

    Be sure to prepare and practice for it will pay off during this lengthy interview process!

    Regarding questions by Samsung:
    If you do not understand a question, be sure to ask questions that will help you focus your answer. Most interviewers will ask good, open-ended questions that will let you give information about your background. What past experiences have you had that speak to B2B sales and the electronics industry? Keep that in mind.

    Regarding questions for Samsung:
    Again, this is where your preparation and practice will pay off. Prepare a list of questions for the interviewer ahead of time. Be certain you don’t ask questions that you asked previously of different interviewers. However, it is fine to ask for additional information or interpretation of information. Clarify any aspects of the position through your questions. Just as you want the interviewer to ask you open-ended questions, your questions
    should be stated in such a way that you will receive helpful information from the interviewer.

    Closing:
    As with the introduction, the closing will be a small part of the interview, but also a very
    important part. Before end the phone and/or video conversation, verify contact information for the interviewer. They most likely will not give it to you and you'll have to forward your thank you to your recruiter contact. Also, verify the next step in the hiring process and express your appreciation.

    Supply Chain Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Samsung Electronics America.

    Interview

    I applied to the Sr. Manager role in October, and was contacted right away to interview for a Manager role(not the role I applied for). First call with HR was very standard. For the second call, I waited for 10 minutes before hanging up. They emailed me concerned about why I had not called ?!?!? I didn't want to go through a job change before end of the year, so I postponed the process for a month. I had the phone interview at the beginning of the new year, and was asked to go for an in person interview. I met with the hiring manager and the director. In person interview seemed overly casual, no deep or difficult questions. I can only assume they had made up their minds before I showed up. 3 months later I still haven't received yes/no ansewers

    Software Engineer - Front End Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Mountain View, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Samsung Electronics America (Mountain View, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Good. They let me ask my questions and they answered. And then I answered their questions. Most of the hard questions were at the start of the interview process. It started with a coding challenge that was sent out to candidates, then the hiring manager sifted through the results and did a phone screen. Then, the onsite came around about a week later. The onsite was a mix of conversation and coding, javascript mastery, framework questions, and maths, the nature of all of which would depend on what position you are applying for.

    Interview Questions

    • Reverse a string without using any native JS functions or data structures.   Answer Question

    Was contacted by a recruiter. It took a long time to schedule an interview. I was given a home test.

About a month has passed and I never heard back from the recruiter or the company.
