I appeared in the on-campus placement drive for Samsung R&D Institute India — Delhi in July 2021, here at the Birla Institute of Technology Mesra. I think it was a pleasant experience.
Basically, it was a three-round process.
- Resume Shortlisting: It was the standard resume shortlisting round based on skills and achievements.
- Online Coding Test: This round was conducted on the cubes platform and it was consisting of 3 questions from Data Structures & Algorithms with 3, 5, and 5 marks. Topics: (Basics Arrays, Strings, Linked List, Trees).
- Technical Interview: It started with a project discussion, and I was given two algorithm-based questions (Linked List, Trees). The round was scheduled for 1 hour, 20 minutes for project discussion, and 40 minutes for the questions. The interview lasted for 50 minutes, and I loved the interviewer. He pushed me to my limits and listened to my every thought with great patience. Topics:- (Linked List, Trees, Strings, Bit manipulation, Arrays)
- HR Interview: It was a typical conversation with HR where she enquired about the family background, current offers, why I want to join Samsung, and short-term and long-term goals. She also informed me about the Samsung Software Competency Test, which we have to appear post-joining.
At the end of the day, the Training and Placement Cell informed me that I have been offered the position at Samsung R&D Institute India — Delhi.
