    Easy, dumb questions. Interviewed by a group of 4 engineers and the last round the hiring manager. Questions are fairly easy, ranging from basic concepts of C/C++ language, domain specific concepts, to whiteboard coding and very fundamental algorithms. Not much negotiation room.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Samsung Electronics America.

    Interview

    Recruiter was great, interview process was quickly moved forward, great communication.
    Know your resume, and expect to be bombarded by technical questions during the interview, they know their stuff and you should too. Don't expect any behavioral questions, its not a big deal to the interviewers, probably had about 40-50 technical questions and no behavioral/team-fit questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Make sure you are 100% on whatever is on the job description.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Samsung Electronics America (San Jose, CA) in December 2009.

    Interview

    Very rigorous interview process, on a par with Google...but the make decisions faster.

    Recruiter very personable. Interviewers friendly. Admin assistant barely uttered a word, just showed me to a room and gave me a pretty challenging paper-and-pencil skills test. Spoke with several current employees, ate in the company cafeteria. One person described the salary and benefits, which were outstanding.

    Returned for a second round, where the director had several programming tests for me, including one I answered by email that nite. All in all, they are working to make sure they hire only top-flight people.

    Reasons for Declining

    Chose to work at a pre-IPO company instead.
