    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sanmina (Fort Mill, SC).

    Interview

    The interview was very informal, not a big deal. I was referred by a current employee. I moved from another state and was looking for work so a friend working at the company had some inside connections. That was an advantage to not having to go through the normal process of applying.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sanmina (Huntsville, AL) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I was impressed that we bypassed the obligatory "let's redundantly discuss your résumé" portion and skipped right to the questions and dialogue part of the interview.

    We spent about 20 minutes touching on critical aspects of the position, and then about 10 minutes exchanging a few questions.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Sanmina in November 2017.

    Interview

    Very laid back. Slow to get back to you. Asked me to attend on site interview for which they have still not paid me my travel expenses. When final offer was made they tried to negotiate by sticking to what was offered first. Be very careful what you sign up for if they cant even pay their candidates for time spent on meeting them.

    Test Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sanmina (San Jose, CA) in April 2009.

    Interview

    Not very orgranized interviewers. The culture seemed stuffed but it was expected; typical of a CM culture. Questions asked were very simple, not much substance. The hiring manager seemed unsure and atually relied on one if his Engineers to make the final decision for him. One Engineer actually spent time talking about other people instead of focusing on the interviewee.
