    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Samsung Semiconductor Inc (US) in September 2019.

    Interview

    Process started our great. Super quick response from recruiter after I applied online. Great conversation with her, which at the end she said she needs to wait for the SVP to make some decisions. Weeks pass and then months, and nothing. I reach out to check in, days later an apology come. Months after I apply I finally receive notification that the SVP has decided on other candidates. Pretty unprofessional to drag people along like this.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Samsung Semiconductor Inc (US) (San Jose, CA (US)) in July 2019.

    Interview

    Two phone interviews; A screening call with HR and another with the hiring manager. Was scheduled for a onsite shortly after the second phone interview but a month out. The interview consisted of a presentation of previous project followed by 5 hours of 1-on-1's.
    Was completely ghosted after that process. All follow up e-mails and phone calls with no response. Samsung hasn't compensated me for any of the travel expenses I incurred either, which they said they would. Very unprofessional.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Samsung Semiconductor Inc (US) (San Jose, CA (US)) in June 2019.

    Interview

    About average call with a recruiter first, then interview with the hiring manager or team member (wasn't made clear). I was asked if I was Korean, which felt very discriminatory of them to ask me and should be illegal to ask if it isn't already. The individual could not communicate the technical questions very well and when asked to clarify they would just repeat themself and swap one example noun for another. I now understand why several former colleagues that went to Samsung left after very short stints. I was offered an on-site but declined. I won't apply here again and I would not recommend others to apply here.
