    One of the best semiconductor jobs in Taiwan, but the workload is demanding.

    I worked at TSMC (less than an year)

    Pros

    They have one of the highest pays in Taiwan for the semiconductor industry. It is also an internationally known company, so workers can lean a lot about the newest technology trends.

    Cons

    With high pay, the workload is not light. It might be necessary to work overtime to get things finished. However, this is how life is in Asia, and generally this has a high CP value in terms of worker benefits.

    R&D Module Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at TSMC in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was a PhD student when I found TSMC's North America recruitment on Linkedin. So I sent my resume but didn't specify any particular position for which I want to apply. Few days later I received email of interview invitation.

    Several managers (5-6) joined the interview on Skype. The first question, also the most frequently asked question in all the following interviews is to introduce my research. Guess they want to know my background. I spent about 15 minutes explaining my semiconductor device research, got interrupted few times for questions about the details of the tools I used, the materials, etc. Then spent another 10 minutes or so to describe my work history. They didn't ask any general questions regarding my life, personailty, or what I wanted to do, etc. In the end of first interview they didn't offer any position or anything particular. Just like ending a chat in the conference.

    However few days later, I got a series of phone interviews from the R&D department. Pretty much the same questions as the first interview, but in the end I was confirmed to be considered for a module engineer position. Got an offer in the last interview. Then talked to the HR for more general question like education history. Nothing unexpected nor difficult. The whole process took about an month.

    Havn't gone through the negotiation part, but I guess it's not too flexible for a newbie like me.
