Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Samsung Electronics (New York, NY) in November 2013.

Interview

It was an open position in Seoul, South Korea. The interviewers and interviewees were all Koreans.
After taking an aptitude test, only people who passed are invited to do 2 interviews. (The interviewees were all in their last year in universities in the US)
Before two interviews, we took an exam about coding.
One is about your personality and the other is about how much skills you have.
In the first interview, they asked questions based on your resume.

Interview Questions

  • Why did you decide to come to the USA?
    Why did you choose that school? Why did you choose not to go to better school? (Yes, they asked me)

    Why do you wanna do software developing? (My major was not Software)

    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Madrid (Spain)

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Samsung Electronics (Madrid (Spain)) in May 2012.

    Interview

    They contacted me through an external recruiter and asked me to go to their office for a F2F interview. The first interview was not technical, and rather about my career path and so.
    After some weeks, I had a technical interview with some head of engineering of theirs. He asked me rather theoretical questions about the Android OS and its architecture. I also had to write a test about the Java programming language and C.

    Few days after, I was asked to complete two online tests, one was IQ evaluation and the other psychological.

    After some more weeks I was called to be told that I was selected, but I wouldn't join until some months after.

    In the end, they never called again, and when I got in touch with the HR manager, he started giving me some poor excuses about delays and "potential follo-up" the next year.

    Of course after this frustrating experience, I gave up with them.
