Enjoyed working for the Corporate giant.

We normally work for Monday to Friday, but due to weekly closure of the Supply Chain System, Saturday and Sunday would be spent in the Office itself. Samsung is one place where you would give equal emphasis on the Customer as well as the internal system. Management plans could change without much internal discussions. Always used to have all kinds of trainings and seminars at least on a monthly basis.

Good work place and productive

As soon i was there, first thing wait for someone to give me the phone i should repair since i was there as a trainee. I learned how to work on Samsung cellphone and what procedure to follow as soon as i was given a phone. Management was pretty good, the co-workers helping a lot, the hardest part was when the chief technician was not there because there was some devices that the guys didn't want to work on it which i found interesting to me(tablets) . The most enjoying part of the job is for me it was to easy since i was working in a company which has a product comparable as a cellphone.

Pros

Each of us had to buy or bring his own lunch

Cons

I was working only on weekends.

productive high pressured environment

a typical day at work hours are 8am to 5pm usually arrive at seven plan day and usually leave rather late ive learnt that without putting in extra you do not achieve extra as part of management,building relationships is vital my co-workers are sensational except for one or two that one could just not trust the hardest part of the job is to keep staff constantly motivated and to show them how strong you are no matter what the circumstances are the most enjoyable part of the job is when a task is complete and there is smiles all round and then of course the rewards

Pros

free breakfast and bonuses

Cons

extreme long hours

Challenging but a good place to learn and develop

A good place work that provides challenges on a daily basis. Pushes you to your limits in order to perform and brings out traits you never knew you had which could help you in business. You meet new people and see different places so it broadens the way you think and look at business and the way its done in different countries.

Pros

Good bonuses, Fuel benefits, Get to experience and use latest technology

Cons

Long hours

Ambiente de trabajo muy agradable, personal directivo accesible y afable.

Disfrutaba mucho trabajando allí, es una empresa de la que siempre tendré un gran recuerdo. Llegaba temprano al trabajo para tener tiempo de relacionarme con mis compañeros y tomar un café antes de empezar a trabajar. El ambiente laboral era muy agradable y divertido. Aprendí mucho de la contrucción y fabricación de videos y televisores. La relación con los mandos intermedios era muy buena, se dirigian a nosotros con respeto y amabilidad. Los mandos superiores eran cercanos y accesibles. No recuerdo nada que fuera difícil, nos formaban adecuadamente y t todo estaba muy organizado. Lo que mas me gustó del trabajo fué el compañerismo que habia.

Briliant brand

A day at work was never the same, always a diferent challeange I've learned that there is always something new to learn Because of the different cultures there is at Samsung, management was never the same I can say the same about co-workers The hardest part was all the constant strategy planning sessions but nothing actually implemented. The continues new products and technology

Pros

Productive

my typical day at work is i get to work check my emails from the service center then right after i call customers and give them quotations for all the items they wanted to be ordered to find out if i should go ahead and order their requirements get back to the service center giving them the go ahead updates from customers.I have learned a lot from the store and dealing with unhappy customers to the sweetest customer, i also learned to work under pressure and always try my best to make a customer happy.The manager is a great person always makes his stuff laugh but when it comes to business he is very strict wants everything to be done the right way to insure a good name for the business as well as oneself.My co-workers are amazing people, i got along great with them from day one.The hardest part of my job is learning how to be on top of everything because customer must always be happy.The love and family band we all have in the store.

Pros

our manager always spoils us with free lunch month ends

Great Relationships, Variety of Experience, Strong Brand Equity

I have gained much experience through Samsung, I have learned how to communicate and engage with the end user, by using Marketing Guidelines and Principles at the shop front to aid in Awareness and Sales.I Have also learned how to manage and monitor new and old product lines and identify issues that would prevent Sell through of our products.Working as part of a team I have gained experience in the Management of people, retail assets and have learnt how escalate and resolve HR issues.With a keen sense and drive for Sales I have the ability to build good realtionships with customers and through trust and commitment utilize this to aid in Sell through of our Products.The biggest challange of my job is the great variety of products which we have to sell, and having to travel out of town every week. As well as extremely long hours.The most enjoyable part of my job is the people that I work with and my customers who I have built really good relationships with and the very good quality of our products and the Strength of the Brand.

Pros

good salary, good benifits

Cons

travel out of town too frequently, no time to balance personal life and work, work 6 days a week!

High remuneration, poor communication

Typical day at work would be met with many challenges all due to communication issues. There is a lot of work to be done to improve communication between the Korean ex-pats and the locals. I learnt that things change on a daily basis :-). In the last couple of years HR started training the staff which is much appreciated. Co-workers are fantastic, hard working, enjoyable people to be around. Hardest part of the job is the rule changing and long hours. Most enjoyable part is the variety of the job

Pros

good pay with bonuses if you reach targets

Cons

poor communication
