I worked at SBM Site Services full-time (More than a year)
lots of different work hours great people on the team I had a great time while working at SBM as a FOUP Technician in a semiconductor factory. I feel like the people were what really sold it. If you are comfortable working 12 hour shifts, this was the perfect job for you.
Felt a disconnect with the upper management. Sometimes the upper management didn't really know what to do with us, because we were such a small group. There weren't really a whole lot of options for morale building activities. This made it hard to feel that the company cared about you.
Advice to Management
Work on doing things that connect ALL groups of workers, so that there is no disconnect and separation within the company. Maybe pay the managers a little bit more to show that they actually are valued in a position that makes them go above and beyond the duties of a regular worker. They keep us going, so they deserve to be kept going too.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at SBM Site Services (Sacramento, CA).
Applied through LinkedIn, contacted the recruiter a few times via email/phone and had two brief phone interviews with him. Created and submitted a portfolio. Interviewed just one time in person, for just one hour, with the hiring manager. Received the job offer the next day. In hindsight, since leaving the job after just a couple of months, it may have been to my benefit to interview directly with the CEO in addition to interviewing with the hiring manager. I strongly encourage anyone at the manager level or above to request to at least meet with the CEO during the interview phase; I believe I may have decided not to accept the offer, OR, I may still be there, had I met him upfront. I see now how important it is to have his buy-in.
I was sent an offer letter, and accepted the offer without negotiating.
