    Web Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Samsung Electronics America in March 2016.

    Interview

    I was given a phone screen, then was given an online video interview.
    The phone screen asked basic questions just to make sure that I didn't lie about anything on the resume and that I'm a normal person.
    The online video interview was just a little longer than an hour. I was given a few very challenging questions about Java EE, but the recruiter gave a heads up so I studied beforehand and could answer a few of them. The technical questions part was short, but the personality questions part was longer. This is an intern position, so I assume they expect candidates to be less technical and look more towards the candidates' personality and how they work in group settings. Still, the in-depth technical questions took me by surprise.

    MBA Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Ridgefield Park, NJ

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Samsung Electronics America (Ridgefield Park, NJ) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Received a call asking if I had time to chat for 20 minutes or so. I was busy, so we talked later in the day; this was the HR phone screen, I believe. I was told that the next round was 1on1 interviews with the team, and then I'd receive a response. I was set up with 3 consecutive video chat 30 minute interviews with different members of the team I was interviewing for. It felt informal; some of the interviews were essentially just a "get to know you" conversation. Some days later, I received an invite to another video chat interview with no clarification on the process (clarified it myself). After this 30 minute interview with the head of the team, I was sent an offer letter.

    District Sales Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Samsung Electronics America (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online, contacted by a recruiter within a week, then setup a video/phone interview with the hiring manager(RM). All behavior based questions, then opportunity was given to ask any questions I had. Few days later received the email of panel interview at the main HQ in Dallas. Recruiter was very helpful setting up the whole process although I will advise against flying AA, flights are always delayed. Panel interview was again behavioral questions. Few days later heard back from recruiter and bad news was given, not selected, which was disappointing given my passion for working at Samsung, wireless industry background and prior DM experience. I would guess they were looking to fill a very specific box, nonetheless, it was a great experience. Got the opportunity to learn more about a brand I am passionate about, interacted with few elite professionals and visited Samsung HQ, selected or not, I am thankful for the opportunity!
