    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sanmina (San Jose, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The interview took about an hour, I met with the team lead and supervisor, the process was very fast, they were both very friendly. I couldn't meet them during the week so they agreed to meet me in the week end, as far as the interview goes, this was a very nice process.

    Senior Director of Supply Chain Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Huntsville, AL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sanmina (Huntsville, AL) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and received a call 2 weeks later for an onsite interview. It was very "corporate" feeling and old school. The HR person had emailed me to set up the interview and stated that I needed to fill out the attached application paperwork. It wasn't attached so I had to email her back. Once I filled it out, I emailed it back to her. I received ZERO confirmation of receipt.

    During the interview, it was with the hiring manager and then I spoke with someone that reports to him. I recently completed a supply chain certification (APICS CSCP) which is very well known in the supply chain community. In fact, many jobs require this certification. The one interviewer stated he didn't known APICS was still around. This tells me that his skills are probably stagnant and goes back to the old school mode of thinking. It surprised me that a large company has Sr level employees that don't take advantage of cutting edge training and certification programs. The programs help one's skills to stay relevant. The 2nd interviewer also mentioned that some customers actually yell and cuss at you. Why in the world would a real professional want to be in that type of environment? It's has been one week and I haven't heard back from the company. Even if I do, I'll be declining an offer.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sanmina (Huntsville, AL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Very positive experience. The hiring managers I spoke with were very enthusiastic, respectful, and easy to talk to. They basically described the position, everyday experience, responsibilities, and answered whatever questions that I had. It felt like they were just as interested in whether it would be a good fit for me as I would be for the company.

    Senior Electrical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Huntsville, AL
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Sanmina (Huntsville, AL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Spoke briefly with the hiring manager in a conference room. No tour of offices (cubes) or labs. No examples of current or past projects shown. Second half of interview was listening to the division V.P. lecture about his views on systems engineering. No opportunity to ask questions since his talk consumed the time before he had a scheduled meeting. Poor people skills.
    Received an offer. When I attempted to negotiate additional pay or PTO, the recruiter and hiring manager blamed each other for no room to negotiate.
