    Talent Acquisition Senior Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Samsung Electronics America.

    Interview

    For the second time, a Samsung recruiter found me on LinkedIn and wanted to talk about a “private search.”

    Interview was straight-forward and the recruiter (who works as a contractor) told me that my candidacy was very strong; she spent 30 of the 45 minutes trying to sell me on the company.

    Following a great interview, I get an email 3 days later asking me how many years experience I had because the role required at least 12. After responding and confirming I met that criteria, I never heard from the recruiter, again.

    This was the second time this exact situation has played out with this company. The same thing happened to me in 2017 with these unprofessional recruiters/contractors.

    The experience of being ghosted by both recruiters, despite each of them telling me I was the “strongest candidate they interviewed,” has led to me never using a Samsung product.

    If their recruitment process is indicative of the quality of their products, I’d expect a lot of talk about quality before the product breaks in four days and customer service hangs up the phone on you whenever you call.

    Tip: take candidate experience seriously because your current process is a joke. If you are going to reach out to passive candidates on LinkedIn, don’t ghost them (twice)-because if you do, you can guarantee those candidates won’t apply at your company when they become active candidates and they are FAR less likely to purchase your products.

    Senior Human Resources Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Samsung Electronics America (New York, NY (US)) in March 2020.

    Interview

    I applied to an open role through linked in and had a 30 minute screen with a contractor working for talent acquisition- it was a one way discussion as that person knew nothing other than what was written on the job description. A week later I was scheduled for a video with a higher level talent person. I set up for the video but that person called in late from a different state was also a contractor but was able to answer some very basic questions about problems on the team that lead to the job becoming open. I was also warned it would take a week and a half for a follow up. That was 3 weeks ago. This is a pretty senior job. I sent an email 3 days ago to the recruiting coordinator and received no reply. If this is an indication of how they keep their candidates warm through the process my conclusion is they probably deserve the low Glassdoor scores they have. You can’t hire top talent this way. I assume I’ll get a form email rejection sometime or another - no need for me to apply there again.

    Marketing Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Samsung Electronics America (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    Samsung recruiting emailed me about a marketing position. I interviewed over the phone with recruiter and hiring leader almost immediately. Was then asked to come in to interview for half a day on 4 days notice.

    I asked for emails to send follow ups to people I interviewed with and recruiter said she didn't give out emails (I found this very odd)

    Follow up was atrocious. Reached out 3 times and was told making decisions today and get back to you. Then a form email saying no.

Second round is with leads/managers.
