    Finance Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Sanmina (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    It was your basic interview process. I didn't feel like the interviewers were very good, the employees outside of HR could use some training on how to interview . They could also do a better job at selling the organization, but then again, that's hard to do when there's very little perks to begin with

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Sanmina (Huntsville, AL).

    Interview

    interviewed by three or four supervisors after submitting job application via a friend who worked there. Never got a call for an interview after submitting resume to HR.
