Lam Research – Why Work For Us?



​​​​​​​​Corporate Overview​​​​​​​​

Lam Research Corporation is a major supplier of wafer fabrication equipment and services to the worldwide semiconductor industry, where we have been advancing semiconductor manufacturing for more than 30 years. With the ongoing and growing demand for feature-rich consumer products, chipmakers are challenged to mass produce highly sophisticated devices. To keep pace and meet challenging production requirements, semiconductor manufacturers will need to invest in highly versatile and reliable wafer fabrication equipment.

Lam’s recent merger with Novellus Systems, Inc., has created a broad portfolio of complementary product capabilities that includes Lam’s leadership in etch and single-wafer clean and Novellus’ leadership in thin film deposition and photoresist strip. The combined company is well positioned to lead the global semiconductor industry through the next critical technology transitions, including 3D structures in advanced devices and scaling to 450 mm wafers.

With corporate headquarters located in Fremont, California, the Company maintains a network of facilities throughout Asia, North America, and Europe to meet the complex and changing needs of its global customer base.

    I have been working at Lam Research full-time (More than 10 years)


    I have worked at Lam for almost 15 years. In that time I have had the opportunity to learn, grow my career, meet amazingly talented and devoted individuals, and be a part of a company that has a direct impact on the products I use daily. Being a mom of two young children, I also appreciate the flexibility I have. I do work hard, but I also have time to be a mom.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Lam Research.


    I applied on their website. There was not much of a job description besides it being mechanical engineering. There was no mention of what department or what the specific duties would be. I was contacted by the manager of a specific department to set up a phone interview. During the phone interview, they asked me about my weaknesses and strengths, past internships and projects, my experience with test engineering and materials science.
