    I worked at Sanmina full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy work environment. No pressure. Many good people to work with. I was new to electronic industry so this was good chance to learn about PCB assembly production.

    Cons

    Total disengagement between operators and management. No basic training of any kind except for ESD. With some exception total lack of supervision at all levels. No support from upper management to lower management. No recognition of good hard working employees no salary increase for last 10 years or so. Total lack of Lean manufacturing .

    Advice to Management

    All this sad in previous section is very much visible to customer and sooner or later there will be visible consequence. For last 4-5 years customers are leaving and work load shrinking. There is dire need for major management change.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sanmina (Houston, TX) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Applying for the position is completed online. Once I was called for an interview it was conducted by both the chief manufacturing engineer and vice president of the department. This interview took approximately one hour. I was questioned about my abilities, job duties and salary with my previous employer. I was given an overview of what the company does and what they are looking for, I am currently waiting for an offer.
