A sense of family
Since joining Samsung Austin Semiconductor in 1999, I’ve seen how the company values a sense of family. From the introductory CORP (College Orientation Rotation Program) for out-of-college hires, to the annual Fall Festival that brings employees and their families on site for a fun-filled day, to building a soccer field that allows members of all departments to meet each other for a friendly competition, this is a company that truly wants its employees to get to know one another and form a warm and friendly community.
Creative freedom for innovation
Creative freedom for innovation
I first came to Samsung Austin Semiconductor back in high school as a Leander ISD COOL (Career Opportunities on Location) Week attendee and instantly fell in love with the fast-paced environment. When I came back as an intern, I had the opportunity to push myself to find innovate solutions to problems, which was truly inspiring. Every day is different here, and that makes for an exciting and somewhat indescribable environment!
Samsung Austin Semiconductor has provided me with unbelievable professional development opportunities. I started in 1996 as an Engineering Technician and 22 years later, I’m a Senior Manager and responsible for four different groups with a wide-ranging scope of responsibilities. That kind of upward mobility is not the norm at other companies, but I’ve seen it happen here for many of our employees and I value the experience it’s given me.
Learning from each other
As our onsite Korean instructor, the biggest reward for me is to watch the links between American and Korean cultures form. While learning each other's language with an open heart, employees begin to see the similarities underlying under our differences. The combining of these two cultures is what makes Samsung Austin Semiconductor such a special and unique place to work.

I worked at Samsung Austin Semiconductor full-time (More than 10 years)
Very stable and loyal employment
Pay is good
Ability to move up if high performer
Ability to transfer roles within the company
Job skills not really transferrable outside semiconductor mfg
Clearly second class to headquarters
I applied online. I interviewed at Samsung Austin Semiconductor.
Got flown in for an on-site interview after a short phone interview. Phone interview was short and simple, just want to hear about why you are interested as well as a few behavior questions. On-site interview was about 40 minutes, interviewed in a room by three people, 2 engineers and 1 human resources person. They have a set list of questions and ask a lot about contents of your resume (if you have project experience they WILL ask you to explain it in detail). After the basic questions it becomes much more conversational, have questions ready for them at the end, they expect it.
