    Process Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Malta, NY
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at GLOBALFOUNDRIES (Malta, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    They bring interviewees in on Fridays. Usually there are three thirty minute interviews, one with an HR person, one with an engineer, and one with a manager.

    The manager who interviewed me was cold and in a bad mood. I asked him how he was and he replied "eeeehhhhh," as if to say he wasn't doing so well.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at GLOBALFOUNDRIES (Malta, NY) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I had one on-site interview, 30 minutes, with four people from the team I would be joining, including one person who was my initial email contact. They responded with an offer within 3-4 days. The interview itself was very fast-paced, with interviewers shooting questions at me quickly after I answered a previous question. They also built on each others' questions and statements, allowing me to only ask one quick question. Additionally, one person in particularly (who will be my direct supervisor) seemed very keen on describing the benefits of the job in my career and teaching me real-world skills, as though he was selling me the job.

    I applied online – interviewed at GLOBALFOUNDRIES.

    Interview

    Effective, efficient, well organized and professional, the interview process was done very well. There was a series of interviews, which were roughly 35-40 min in length and done non-stop for several hours. They interviewers were a fair sampling of HR personnel, process engineers, experience managers and experienced equipment engineers. Prepare to test your bladder!

    Interview Questions

    • Six Sigma experience and examples of tools used to resolve problems with equipment.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The compensation package offer was more than expected, they are very serious about obtaining talented people and make legitimate offers from the start.

    Senior Director Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at GLOBALFOUNDRIES (Santa Clara, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The worst interview I have ever experienced. Nobody was expecting me, I was left alone without anyone checking on me, no lunch was offered, etc. Preparations were very unprofessional.

    Offices seem new, but are very run down and messy. You can sense a lack of pride and the morale problems written about in the company reviews.

    Poor first impression

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ monthsinterviewed at GLOBALFOUNDRIES (Malta, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    The interviewers and HR are ridiculously unprofessional: 1. while HR ask for expected salary, she has to mention they have another candidate in 3 weeks, very interesting and not confident 2. hiring manager is super nice at first sight, as he only ask very simple technical question. But he did not provide a stage to have the candidate show his talent in his way. 3. Another manager is interesting also, he asked a lot of tough questions and humiliate candidates, but all those questions are his area and not related to the job responsibilities. Are you show off your techniques to candidates?! 4. Another manager, he interrogated candidates and challenged your good temper. Asked a lot of UN-related questions. Many of them are personal, many of them are looking for other company's classified information. all Stupid managers!
    After interviews, never replied to you. Very rude and stupid! They basically tended to hire PhD to do work which was done by technicians in my current employer, and managers are proud of that quite well!
