Samsung Interview Process


I applied for the position of Senior Software Engineer for C++ profile in Samsung through an employee referral. The process took two weeks and then I was interviewed at Samsung. There are three rounds - One written exam and two face to face interviews.

Round 1 - Written Exam
The written test comprised of basic C++ related questions or problems. If your experience is less than three years, then you must appear in the test. The questions are not difficult if your base is strong.

Round 2 - Face to Face Interview
This round includes your resume too. Other than some basic questions related to C++ and threading, you will be asked about your current job profile. Also they will ask you "Why do you want to leave your current company?" So you must be prepared with a good enough reason. Don't sound like you are kind of a guy who joins and leave companies for your self-interest.
Q1. Count the number of bits of an integer.

Round 3 - Face to Face Interview
"Define yourself." This was the first thing that I was asked in this round. But that was just to loosen up the environment. Then some questions regarding programming and data structures were asked. Some questions based on algorithms were asked too.
1) Sort an array which comprises of only 0s and 1s in most efficient way.
2) Given the output when we print in C, C++ and Java, will the answers be different in each case? Why or why not?

After the offer letter was given to me I was called by HR and was asked to visit the Samsung office for an online test. I was worried at first but let me tell you that it regarding some internal process and each of their employees has to go through it. So there is no reason to be worried.


How to crack Samsung Interview


I applied for the senior position and thus I will speak for that only. I have no idea through which process the freshers have to go through.

The written test is simple and since you are experienced, you can vouch for clearing it. There is simple C++ logics that you have to apply while giving the test which should not be a problem.

The first face to face round was tougher for me than the second. The reason is that I am strong with the technical stuff and my concepts are clear, but the questions were regarding my resume and myself. Like I said previously as well, prepare with best possible answers that are realistic enough. Why do you want to join them? Why do you want to leave your current company? What did you learn in your career so far? What projects have you worked on? What problems did you face in those projects? Where do you see yourself in future? What are your dreams? Questions like that, you must prepare.

The second face to face round was more of technical stuff and I enjoyed it. The questions were not too difficult. Prepare for algorithms and data structures well and you will not find a problem.

The Interview at Samsung is easy in comparison to various other companies. I did not find any need for negotiation as the offer made was quite good. The interviewers are nice and very resourceful.

My wishes for all the aspiring candidates.
