Round 2

Test

No. of Questions
1 questions
Test Sections
  • Section 1: One coding question.
Interview Experience
Find the index at which a monotonically increasing sequence attains a given value. Naive implementation of binary search worked.
Interview Tips
1. Make sure all test cases pass. Else you wont be considered for next round.
2. Make sure you use the right data types. The numbers given were in the range of 2^63 and unless you use long long - the test cases will not pass.
3. The coding test allows only C, C++ or Java.
Round 3

Technical + HR Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: They mostly ask questions about DSA.
Interview Experience
They'll also ask you about your projects and internships. I had done projects in ML. So, they asked related questions regarding PCA, Linear Algebra and Spectral Decomposition. Basically, explain your project thoroughly and be able to answer questions related to projects well.
Interview Tips
I had two technical and one HR round. Answer HR questions convincingly or you wont get selected. They'll ask you why you prefer Samsung over other companies (don't mention if you have interviews with Goldman, if you do give convincing reasons as to why you wont join Goldman over Samsung). They'll ask you about plans for higher studies. They basically want to give offers to people who are likely to accept the offer. Convince them of this and you are done.

Interview Process

Round 1

Test

No. of Questions
2 questions
Test Sections
  • Section 1: Offline coding test
Interview Experience
A total of two questions were to be solved in a duration of 5 days. Both the questions were programming based and required knowledge of data-structures and algorithms.
Interview Tips
Though it was mentioned that solving any one of the two questions should ensure interview shortlist, only those who solved both the questions were shortlisted. So, ensure that you solve both the questions. In the worst case, by brute force.
Round 2

Technical Interview

Interview Experience
This round involved solving two programming questions. Both the questions involved writing code on their editor, compiling it and running for few test cases provided by them.
Interview Tips
1) Make sure you practice writing more and more code during your preparation rather than passively reading/thinking of solution to coding questions
2) Make sure you 'think aloud' during the interview (discuss your approach/progress you have made regarding the question) even when you are stuck so that the interviewer can guide you to the correct direction. However, please don't confuse this with abruptly speaking of any solution that comes to you mind. Relax and take your time but don't hesitate to speak to the interviewer when stuck
3) Discuss the approach with the interviewer before proceeding to code your final solution
4) Write a readable code with proper variable naming, code reuse
5) Dry run your solution on few basic and corner test cases before flagging a question as done!
Round 3

HR Interview

Interview Experience
This was an easy round. HR asked be few questions from my resume. After that a long discussion on work culture of the company and kind of profile I will like to work on.
Interview Tips
Just speak honestly in this round. It will be a cake-walk then.
Round 4

Test

Test Sections
