Principal Technician Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 months - interviewed at GLOBALFOUNDRIES.

Interview Details – 8 hour process, but only 1 hour of face to face time. The rest is a series of personality and skill tests.

Interview Question – Do you know how to use this software that is only used at our site?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They lowball everyone. Hold out for more. You need to negotiate your pay. The relocation package is taxed, so expect half of it on your first check. You have to move yourself. That part sucks.

Wafer Fab Technician (WFT) Interview

Anonymous Employee
Malta, NY

I applied online and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at GLOBALFOUNDRIES in September 2010.

Interview Details – I applied for a Procurement position. I was called in for a full day interview. Computer test, group team building exercise and interview. I was interviewed by an ME (Manufacturing Engineer) who was fresh out of college, who's only job was Apple-bees. Only then was I told that I was being interviewed for a WFT position. He claimed this was a foot in the door to gain Fab experience and I could move up quickly within GF based on my work experience. That was not a true statement.

Interview Question – Difficult because I was interviewed for a position other than the one I applied for. Other than that, it was a very simple process.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation at all. When asked if I was being considered for the position I applied for I received a "take it or leave it" answer.
