    I worked at Foxconn full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent employee dynamics; people got along well. made many acquantiances
    Opportunities to learn and develop managerial skills
    Opportunities to cross-train and learn other departments

    Cons

    Work many consecutive days; off days are not too frequent (work-life balance very poor)
    Big company bureaucracy; hard to get things done
    Language barriers often prevent tasks from getting done as needed to promote quality customer service
    Stringent attendance policies tend to temper desire to want to stay with organization
    No plan for managing organizational change led to major delays in ship-outs and incoming freight; also very difficult to keep track of shipments due to all logs needing to be updated manually

    Advice to Management

    The international language of business is English - it needs to be made standard and enforced throughout the organization
    Need to use technology (ie., software) to automate many of the processes in Transportation Department; this would greatly simplify the workload and eliminate redundancies

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Foxconn.

    Interview

    The interview process was done through telephone since I was hired from abroad. Quick and simple, but went through 3 rounds, 3 different bosses. The interviewers looked for more than just experience, but more your attention to detail, potential and communication skills.
