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

    Pros

    Management listens to the employees and actively hears your concerns. They are willing to work with you if you have any problems and are flexible enough with your schedule if things come up. Honestly if you don't mind the monotony of this industry and are looking for a place where you are treated like a human being, than this is a very good place to work.

    Cons

    I found the work to be very boring. I think this is more that the industry isn't for me than the company itself. The flat management style means that everybody is very accessible, although it limits advancement opportunities.

    Entry Level Engineer/Production Supervisor Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at WaferTech (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    It was a good professional interview. 4 rounds of interviews with 5 of the Engineering Managers and the CEO. Ended with a Plant Tour. This was a clean room situation, no makeup, no perfumes or colognes. Which was part of what made it not the right fit for me, but going into this interview make sure you're wearing clothes that you can slip a clean suit over. Make sure you get the booties on good and tight. Nothing makes a plant tour worse than having to stop and adjust your booties every few yards.

    Interview Questions
