    Principal Engineer Interview

    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.

    Equipment Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Malta, NY
    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 4 weeks - interviewed at GLOBALFOUNDRIES in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    GLOBALFOUNDRIES was tough but courteous during the interview. They were upfront about the challenges at work, the long hours and the possibility of being called in on weekends. They also emphasized that the more closely you worked with other engineers and technicians, the better one's workload could be handled.

    I applied through a recruiter. 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.

    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.

    It was the strangest process I have ever seen.
    Ridiculous online computer test, to assembling wooden cars in a room full of other candidates.
