The most enjoyable part of the job is to exceed if not to meet expectations to meet common goals.
Technical Sales / Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CADecember 17, 2015
Working at Amkor varies greatly based on your manager and team. Some teams work long hours with little appreciation from their leadership. Others (including myself) have enjoyed good leaders and decent work-life balance. Overall, Amkor offers very competitive pay and benefits. The day-to-day work is great, lots of good people and many opportunities to learn and grow.The most enjoyable part of the job is to exceed if not to meet expectations to meet common goals.

Sr. Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAOctober 14, 2015
My time with Amkor Technology, Inc. was priceless. If life did not change for me, I probably would have stayed a lifetime with them. They were professional and yet kept that work/life balance in place, making every day fun and exciting. This company still exists today, although they have downsized a bit in locations. There was no difficult part of my job. I was known to stay late and work hard, never missing a day of work. I gave to them what they provided me in return...a healthy position and room for growth.
Pros
Coffee and other beverages, healthcare

Process Technician (Former Employee) –  Research Triangle Park, NCAugust 26, 2015
Every day at work was pleasant. I learned to inspect incoming and finished product at 100%. Microscopes, AOI( Automatic Optical Inspection) and visual inspection were used. Received various bonuses for completing projects on time. Made the holidays as festive as being at home. Co-workers were and still are like family. The management was superb. The hardest part of this job was leaving after the company was moved overseas. The most enjoyable part of this job was everything.
Pros
Bonuses, Pleasant working environment
Cons
None

Electric Board Loader (Former Employee) –  Wichita, KSApril 21, 2015
Those who worked there the longest taught us how to load and unload components into testing boards; separate the bad components from the good ones; spot and fix the bent leaves; chart the results, etc.; they would even double check our work and show us our errors (if any). Sometimes we were sent to the testing lab to test the components.
Pros
Occasionally the company would have parties; provide donutes for us.
Cons
Sometimes we had to pull a double shift.

This is a company which growth is customer driven.
EOL Process Engineer III (Former Employee) –  PhilippinesMay 15, 2014
A typical day at work starts on the review of performance of the assembly line. What is the assembly yield? What is the assembly cycle time? What is the top contributor of the defect? Where is the bottle neck? What should be done to contain the problem? Who is responsible? When is the containment action or corrective action be implemented?

Given the assembly line issue or problem, a team is created for brainstorming.

The hardest part of the job is to meet commitments. Corrective actions are time bounded. We are result oriented.

The most enjoyable part of the job is to exceed if not to meet expectations to meet common goals.
Pros
Meal tickets are provided to all employees.
Cons
Staggerred breaks.
