    "software" Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Suwŏn, Kyonggi (South Korea)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Samsung Electronics (Suwŏn, Kyonggi (South Korea)).

    Interview

    Vague communication between the exchange university and Samsung, as if they had never recruited there before. Short interview about some vaguely technical questions in front of four Korean managers with long time (four months) hearing nothing from the company. They didn't seem to care about my education, experience, or interest other than living in Korea.

    Interview Questions

    • Can you say something in Korean?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiation in any aspect. Details about pay, bonuses, and holidays are given at the last minute. Salary was 30% lower than expected for the first three months of employment and "occasional overtime" is a gross under-exaggeration.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Samsung Electronics (Seoul (South Korea)) in April 2016.

    Interview

    It was a standard process. I already took part in the group project. So, the manager who offer job knew me during the project. But, I think they try to focus on personal characteristic.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Samsung Electronics (Seoul (South Korea)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I was asked to answer technical questions regarding software engineering knowledge.
    Most of them were not very difficult to answer.
    The interviewer seemed to lack programming knowledge required to test the applicants' competency.
    The interview was rather short. Instead they gave me a project, which they required me to finish in a week's time.
    They choose 3~5 people depending on how many people they need at the time.
    And you are not allowed to talk about any questions you get asked during the interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Samsung Electronics.

    Interview

    First phase is a written exam. GMAT kind of thing. All the questions are easy but need to be done fast. Reasoning part seems a bit hard. But this is also the step where most applicants fail to pass to the next step. Exam result is announced in about 2 weeks. If Pass, the next step is interview session which could take between 1 and 2 hours. It consists of two sessions. The first part is interview about your personality and ambitions and missions in life. The second part is more of technical and what you did in school. (I applied for through the school where i was doing my MSc in computers.) Also needed to give a few minutes presentation of what one did in school.
    During the interview, there was nothing really difficult about it. Need to be honest and relaxed. However, the interviewers check if you know korean language and if you do it is a big plus.

    Interview Questions

    • - Passing the written exam is, i think, the most difficult part of getting job to samsung (even though the exam by itself is seems so easy).   Answer Question

    Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Samsung Electronics (Suwŏn, Kyonggi (South Korea)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Contacted HR through a job posting from school. HR responded right away with a few questions (making sure I am willing to work in Korea). Within a few days there was a phone interview. There was one person speaking English who was in direct contact with me. There were other people there who were not introduced. After every questioned answered, it seemed like she was translating it from English to Korean to them. There was also roughly a minute or so of Korean conversation happening. Questions were on why, why, and why. Why Samsung? Why Korea? Why this area? Also, they asked about my resume and a little about my research. After a thank you email, I waited a week without an update from HR. I emailed and found out I passed. The next step was an in-person interview. After a couple of months of planning the America visit, I met with a panel of 4 interviewers. The interview was only an hour and I was asked to present my research. Questions were primarily on my research and very little technical questions were asked. It seemed more like they wanted to get to know me. They were nice and friendly. Their English was very good. Questions were not too difficult. It was a very good experience for me. It took 1 month for them to make a decision or at least get back to me after follow-ups.
