    I have been working at Samsung Electronics America full-time

    Pros

    Fast paced environment with freedom to take responsibility and learn a huge amount. Working at one of the biggest brands in the world is exciting and you get to work with the resources of Samsung behind you.

    Cons

    Management support is lacking and long term business strategy is undermined by short him pressure to hit revenue targets.

    Advice to Management

    Provide clearer roles and responsibilities through out the business and shield the local team from HQ culture and pressure.

    Talent Acquisition Senior Manager Interview

    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.
