    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Samsung (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.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Samsung (Seoul (South Korea)) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Two interviews in one day.
    One on your skill and the other on yourself overall.
    Since I was applying for marketing interns, they give us 3 or 4 types of question which I can choose from on marketing strategy. And then it was required to submit marketing strategy in 30 minutes and after that i did presentation in front of 3 interviewers.
    And there was a test after two interviews on the personality.
    It was not very hard and the interviewers overall try to relax candidate.
    It was 3 to 1, 3 interviewers and 1 interviewee.
    One interview takes around 30 minutes but in total it takes about two and a half hours.
    And I was almost the first who took every interviews so it will take around three or four hours on average.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Samsung (Seoul (South Korea)).

    Interview

    There are three steps during the hiring process: Admission review, technical interview, and manager interview.

    During 20 minutes technical interview, applier should give a presentation about what they have experienced in the field they apply in. Three or four committers asked about it. But they were not that difficult.

    In manager interview, chief managers may ask you about your backgrounds and may want to find out how well could you be fitted in the company and the department as well. For example, "if your supervisor keep asking you to do much work than you expected in previous week and you think you don't have enough time to handle all them up, what would you do ?" or "Do you have any plan to study more in graduate school?"
