    Senior Engineer Process Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Malta, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at GLOBALFOUNDRIES (Malta, NY) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Applied through Internal referencing in Oct 2017 and got a call in less than a week from Technical Manager. The phone call was basically made to explain about job position and few behavioral questions and next day they invited me to Malta, NY.

    I have been scheduled to meet 4 Technical managers for 1:1 interview for 30 min each and 1 HR personnel and all the interviews were mostly focused on behavioral questions and explaining job requirements. I liked the managers for clearly explaining the challenges and direction of the group that I might gonna work in. The last interviewer, HR personnel - basically asked me questions like , Why we should hire you & Why global foundries and finishing with the Salary details etc etc and confirmed that it will take 1 to 2 weeks time to get back to me about the position.

    before the onsite interview, I did my online research about job profile (I would highly suggest Glassdoor) and spoke to my friends at Globalfoundries to learn about the position and how much demanding and challenging it can be. I was up for the challenge and went to the interview knowing what the technical/hiring managers were looking for in the candidate.

    got a call in less than two days and confirmed that I go through interview and offer letter is provided to me.

    Overall - its a great experience at Global Foundries.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at GLOBALFOUNDRIES (Essex, VT) in October 2017.

    Interview

    A few weeks after submitting an online application I was contact by GlobalFoundries for a phone interview. A month following, I was invited to interview at Fab9 in Vermont. They asked basic questions about my resume, why I was applying, and some basic background to get to know me.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at GLOBALFOUNDRIES (Malta, NY) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Interviewed on site abut 2 weeks after applying. Took SAM test, applied for P.T position and had a group interview and individual interviews. The group activity was okay, mostly the "business minded" individuals took the lead. They were observing to see who would come out as an alpha. Just another psychological play at candidates that were already anxious enough.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GLOBALFOUNDRIES (Malta, NY) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online several times and each time I received an invitation to take a online 3 hour test - which I didn't do due to lack of time. I finally took the test one day when I had some time and I got a phone call from recruiter the next day. I was invited out for a onsite interview the next week ( they paid for flight, hotel and rental car plus reimbursed meals, transport to and from origin airport and gas for rental car).
    Interview consisted of a group exercise with three other interview candidates building toy cars - the goal here is to see how you work in a team, think on your feet, attention to deal. The group exercise was followed by 3 interviews with HR, Technical team and management.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at GLOBALFOUNDRIES (Malta, NY) in August 2017.

    Interview

    1. Phone interview with Hiring Manager - 30 mins
    All behavioural and HR based questions with basic technical ones.
    Hiring Mgr expressed his interest to invite me on-site at the end of the call.
    2. On site interview with Sr. Managers and HR - 5 rounds, 30 mins each, back-to-back.
    Interviewers were all quite friendly. Did not drill technically. There was some confusion between the interviewer and scheduler about the time slot. So, the 2 & a half hours total interview time extended to 3 hours 45 mins.

    This was my first on-site interview. Overall, had a good experience. The company had made very good transport and stay arrangements.

    However, the timeline was too long. On-site was scheduled after two weeks of phone interview and had to wait for the result for almost a month from the on-site interview.

    Thin Film Process Development Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Albany, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GLOBALFOUNDRIES (Albany, NY).

    Interview

    Very long interview. Good impression on manager except with interview duration which was informed in the last moment. Almost every member in the team got some time/slot to interview me, I guess!!!

    Called for on-site interview after phone screen. One hour presentation, went smooth (9 am-10am). After that almost for every half an hour the interviewer in the seat changed till 5 am . Fortunately, there is lunch break!!!

    The interview was average in general. Questions are mostly related to technical and behavioral. Unfortunately, due to long unexpected interview duration after long travel, I was not able to answer last few interviewers including manager!!!

    Interview Questions

    • I got surprised with one of the interviewer as he was commanding/insisting me.   Answer Question
