    District Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    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!

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Samsung Electronics America (Ridgefield Park, NJ) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by an outside recruiter for this one year contract position that could turn into a full time position. It all happened quickly and I had an in-person interview two days after the initial contact. Interviewed with two of the managers, they were friendly and pleasant. The interview was general with some questions on my past project and how it applies to the job description. They never got back to me though neither with an offer or a rejection after a week+.

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Samsung Electronics America.

    Interview

    Not many engineering questions for an engineering position.
    A lot of the usual "what are you 5 year goals" and useless fluff questions.
    Group panel interview with current employees. Most seem disinterested.
    Manager is late.

    Manager, Social Media Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Samsung Electronics America (New York, NY) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I contacted the recruiter and I had 2 phone interviews that went well and was called back to meet 2 members of the social media team. The 2 employees I met were quite junior and it showed. The interview was conducted very unprofessionally. Then I was called again to meet 1 more team member that I hadn't met before and 1 employee that I previously met during round 1. I emailed HR the morning of because I had something urgent that came up in my current job and they told me to come in anyway when I could without rescheduling. Once I did I met another junior employee and was kept waiting for over an hour. I was fine with this since they were nice enough o be flexible regarding my work emergency. I also had another phone interview scheduled for the next day with the Digital Manager.

    But the evening of my interview I get a call from HR that said my phone interview was cancelled and an email saying that they decided to pass on me because my interview was not a priority. I was surprised at how they conducted themselves through out this process but overlooked it because of the brand and because they seemed to be understanding. Regardless it was a very unprofessional and disappointing interview process.

    Interview Questions

    • One of the managers that interviewed me seemed tired and incoherent--like she hadn't slept in days. It was really strange.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Samsung Electronics America (Mesa, AZ) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Interview was very simple, there was no structured interview process. The content of the interview was subjective and was designed with speed clarity and succinctness. It appeared that the decision had already been made regarding my candidacy therefore the interview was rudimentary and a formality. Net experience was very good.
