    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Samsung Electronics America (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    panel interview, tough, panel team appeared stressed out, everyone had a list of questions to ask but they questions appeared to be personal to them, not a 'joint' interview - disjointed, hard to tell what company is like
