    I have been working at Super Micro Computer, Inc. (Supermicro) full-time (More than a year)


    Fast growing company. If you are willing to take additional responsibility and go beyond, you will own it. This is a public company but still feels like startup, a lot of opportunities and challenges you can can take and grow. Company's financial is very strong and stable.


    Depends on different departments, workload could be heavy sometimes because of strong business.

    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Super Micro Computer, Inc. (Supermicro) (San Jose, CA) in February 2017.


    Took a very long time to get interview, very unprofessional. Had 5 workers interviewing me and all asked the same questions. Horrible company. You should consider Tesla. Very low pay here as well. Plantation like slave workers, like a sweat shop in Asia.

    Interview Questions

    • Can you work 7 days a week?   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    Very Low pay, they will work you like Tesla but pay is $13 VS Teslas $18 for the same hours and same line of work.
