Senior Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mountain View, CA
No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Samsung Electronics (Mountain View, CA) in June 2016.

Interview

whole interview process gone for 2 + months and took about 2 weeks to schedule each round of phone interview from folks TX, MA, CA.. areas. The recruiters and schedulers are disconnected and do not respond unless you follow-up on regular basis.
For me they 4-5 rounds of phone interviews and then sent very vague email that ' After reviewing all the feedback the team has decided not to move forward.'

Interview Questions

  • I don't see any strong technical interviewer during interview process. They just ask and dig deep on your skills and projects. Be accurate what you tell if interviewer catches, he spends rest of the time on it.
    Ask about team structure since there are frequent re-orgs..

    • One of the interviewer was surprised to know templates in C++ provide polymorphism. His reaction was "huh". Another interviewer's idea of LRU was MRU. After I politely tried correcting he didn't seem to be happy and stayed for next interview in room doing some verifications on his computer only to say in the end "I have seen many implementations" etc. Multiple red flags so decided to pass the offer.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Samsung Electronics (Bengaluru (India)) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Interview process was lengthy. They were on a hiring spree , I think becasue there were mamy other candidates being taken around.
     My intereviewer was very knowledgeable. Asked some tough questions on multi threading, String and in general core-Java. There was also a programming test which was easy. But the managerial interview and technical interview were hard.

    Interview Questions

    • Why is thread run method protected and not public, if it is in object class?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    not too much, I asked for a package but they refused bluntly . Later i talked over phone, but I had not answered all questions on the interview, So I accepted their offer at the end.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Samsung Electronics (New Delhi (India)).

    Interview

    The hiring process gives more stress on programming abilities. Written test in C , C++ ,Java is conducted for candidates having less than 5 years of experience. Cutoff is now made 50% (earlier it was 40%).
    After clearing written test, 2 or more rounds of interviews are conducted. Interviews are usually focused on the job requirement, programming and design patterns.
    There can be multiple rounds of technical interviews with different teams so its important to be patient and give your best in each one of them.

    Interview Questions

    • In the written test some questions were compiler dependent.   1 Answer
