    Equipment Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Malta, NY
    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.

    Process Technician Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at GLOBALFOUNDRIES in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process is totally ridiculous especially for experienced semi conductor folks. The activity is about team building and if you come from another factory then you know how important being a team player is. Then there is the waiting game and then the physical, then the background check and again the waiting game really being experienced to go through all this and waiting for the email to say ok this is your start date, and if you are moving your family hope you have money put away because you don't get your relo money until your first pay check.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed 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+ monthsinterviewed 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.

    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.

    So... It was a while ago but whole thing was a sham! At that time manager could not even keep 1st interview appointment and I had to call them to reschedule. Should have paid attention to the signs, huh?

    interviewed at GLOBALFOUNDRIES in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Not as technical as you would think. Really just a conversation with a few managers concerning my experience. Long on-line test that actually was pretty good. The contact form the HR department was pretty spotty post offer and understanding process.
