    Equipment Engineer Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Malta, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Malta, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 months - interviewed at GLOBALFOUNDRIES in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    Expect to be in que for months on end. Long battery of self assessment tests, along with very silly game of building wooden cars. Also expect a full day of interviews with multiple managers from different modules. Questions will vary and can be highly technical, to simple rapport building...most focus on 'soft skill' questions. Basically, you will be abused as a Technician, so they want to see how you handle being poked and prodded theoretically.

    Interview Questions
    • Almost any question that you ask the interviewer will be followed by a long thoughtful pause. Then the corporate machine language downloads and an answer comes out.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at GLOBALFOUNDRIES.

    Interview Details

    I was recruited (probably through LinkedIn) because I had particular experience and skills sought by GF. After taking to a recruiter, I spoke with the hiring manager on the phone and then flew in for on-site interviews.

    Equipment Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at GLOBALFOUNDRIES in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process took about a few months. First you have to apply though the correct "portal" as they call them online. Then about a week later i received an email to set up an appointment to take a sams test at some location outside the company. That test took about 3 hours. Then about two weeks later they arranged an interview at the companies location in malta. It had a group exercise where you had to work with the other people applying for the positions. Then I met with three different people a manager a engineer and a HR person. They go over your resume and ask you about your experience and what you thought about the group exercise.
    Then you wait for an offer letter. If you accept it you need to get a physical, drug test, and a background investigation.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at GLOBALFOUNDRIES in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    There was an initial testing process. This was followed by a group activity/interview. There were problem solving activities, leadership activities, and social activities that were observed by the interviewer. It was fun, and difficult. This was followed by an individual interview, which was low pressure and very conversational. Excellent process.

    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Malta, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Malta, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at GLOBALFOUNDRIES in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    Interview was typical, they used a behavioral interviewing style. They also asked technical questions that applied to the position I was interviewing for. They did not meet my expectations when I asked about how they felt about a workers needs. Meaning do they believe that making sure the needs of the employee are important to running a successful business. Also were not clear on how they solved root cause issues utilizing data or statistical tools. If a company does not value there employees and they solve problems by gut feel, red flags go up everywhere for me. I find that scenario leads to never understanding what the expectations are therefore never being able to meet those expectations.

    Interview Details

    Most of the normal things, but assembling toy cars was more than a little strange. They are looking for team players, so if you take the lead, you have just saved yourself from getting a job offer. After working here, I have wished that I had taken the lead. Unless you really need a job, keep looking. The reviews on this site are for real.
