    Positive Outlook


    Great working environment Open communications with all departments Excellent staff Very good work-life balance Great employee development Good compensation


    Raises rarely commensurate with individual efforts and achievements Some adminstrative processes over managed and made more complex than necessary for the sake of automation

    Advice to Management

    In large measure, simply continue to do what you are doing. Even minor changes are always possible to simplify tasks. Continue to acquire and develop new technologies to maintain leadership in the industry.

    Murata University Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tucson, AZ
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Murata Manufacturing (Tucson, AZ) in June 2012.


    A telephone interview with the Marcoms Manager in Mansfield, MA. The Manager, John, was familiar with my experience there and my qualifications, as I had just recently retired from Murata. The position was going to be open in a matter of weeks because the person that had been doing it was leaving for personal reasons. John provided a brief outline of the duties and responsibilities in this position. I accepted the position contingent only on two conditions: first, that I would work no more than 3 days a week (24 hours); secondly, that travel would be minimal. With just that much said, John quickly agreed and I had a new job.

    Interview Questions

    • Would I be satisfied accepting a reduced rate of pay compared with what I had been making as a Field Applications Engineer?   1 Answer


    I asked for a slightly higher wage than was offered, but John advised that the position had been approved only at the lower rate.
