HR Generalist/Benefits Admin (Former Employee) – Hillsboro, OR – October 8, 2015
Had a wonderful HR team that allowed for everyone's success.
Worked all aspects of HR. Began as HR Asst, quickly promoted to Benefits Admin, then to Sr. HR Rep.
This was one of IDT's manufacturing sites (semi conductors and more). I had the privilege and honor to work with hundreds of people from all around the world. And because of my role in HR I got to meet each and every one. I problem solved much of the time, which is one of my strengths.
Was layed off in the 7th round of lay offs. Since that time, the facility was sold and manufacturing went to Ireland and China.
Product and Testing Engineer (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – July 10, 2014
Well, a good group of people to work with but too many upper level management levels changes and decisions are made in secret meetings. The new CEO seems only to care for the stock price. Honestly the stock is way overpriced now.
Our industry was analog & software intensive; IDT's historic & current dependency involved hard-coded ASIC's (clock buffers, digital switch management, and currently switching power regulators.) There was an apples-avocados interaction during every quarter telecast & forecast, ultimately our entire infrastructure was dissolved.
As our department was downsized, our local management and co-workers remained in-tact; only regional executive responsibility changed hands during the multiple levels of downsizing.
networking - working with colleagues in the semiconductor industry
unsupported - our product line was un-understood & ultimately unsupported.

Supervisor Social Work/Intervention/Monitor (Former Employee) – algarve, Portugal – September 4, 2012
hard work both in physical and psychological Working with people with addictions, or basic needs, or behavioural issues, it´s not easy at all. Each day is a day, each person is a case, each case is several issues. I have training in the area and I always gave my best efforts to promote healthy lifestyles, or to give my energy to empower others, so they be able to have a better life.
working with people, p2p
payroll, not contract, a lot of instability related to formalities with employer-employee
I was employed at IDT for 8 1/2 years, coming into the corporation as an entry-level Administrative Assistant and being promoted several times. The year I was laid off I had been a Bandwidth Buyer (for 2 years) I have done everything from supporting one Executive and his staff of 10 representatives to supporting a whole department consisting of 150 in addition to our offices and employees and clients internationally. So this promotion was definitley a turning point for me. I had become one of the several people I was supporting years prior. I learned everything from Engineering, Project Management, Legal negotiations, Reporting, and every technical aspect of Telecommunications on a whole new level. The management there was rewarding and they all had faith that lifted me further in my career there. My coworkers were very business minded and easy to work with. The hardest part of my job was being laid off. I would still be there if I could be. The enjoyable part of my was the perks. I worked with a remarkable Executive that took me under her wing and showed me so much more than I knew existed. I went to site tours, business meetings, Tradeshows, etc. in addition to very decent salary and 10k per year in bonuses.
free lunches, great compensation, great people to work with.
