    Government Relations Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at GLOBALFOUNDRIES.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the position and received a phone call about two months later. Unfortunately, it went to voicemail. The HR representative left her name and number, said she had a few questions for me and asked me to call her back. About two hours later I was available to call and I left a message. I left a second message a few days later. No response. I found this to be extremely rude and unprofessional. If they are simply moving on to the next candidate when they don't get an answer, then don't leave a message.

    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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Malta, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed 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.
