    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Sanmina.

    Interview

    One phone interview and one in person interview. My direct supervisor and his boss both conducted the interview. They were really laid back and friendly. The only problem I had was I waited 2 months to hear back from them. That seems a little excessive.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Huntsville, AL
    No Offer
    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.

    Interview

    Manager told me everything I wanted to here to get me on board. Even said there was room to grow but that was a lie. This position was a cap. No way up at all.

    Purchasing Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Sanmina in February 2017.

    Interview

    Had several departments attend the first interview. Questions were easy. When I asked why they worked at this location not one had anything positive to say. It certainly did not make me want to work here. Had second set of people interview me after the first set was finished and again all very negative about the location, management and work balance.

    Not sure what is going on but it seems to be more negatives than positives and unhappy employees looking for other opportunities. I left feeling as if I took the position I would end up regretting it. I told the GM I was not interested after the long drawn out negativity. He tried to sugar coat a few things but I could tell it would be a mistake.

    Positive Experience
    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.
