Great semi conductor company
BUYER / PURCHASING (Former Employee), Portland, ORSeptember 27, 2013
Pros: free gym, laptop, choice of working from home
Cons: no benefits for contractors
My first start in procurement was for this was a semi-conductor manufacturing company. Hugh multinational company with each work day is almost similar to the day before.
On going product awareness and learning on the job, working with manufacturing and product development

Hardest part of the job is that it was almost impossible to have the full knowledge – more... of all thousands of parts and commodities that you deal in the material requirement planning.

The most enjoyable part of the job was that the people and my manager was extremely supportive and helpful. – less

Bad place to work
Assemble Technician (Former Employee), Tualatin OrOctober 21, 2012
Pros: enjoyable work.
Cons: horrible temp policy.
The Temp policy has been horrible over the years. Expect to stay a temporary worker with no benefits or PTO for 9 month - 2 years if you would like to get hired on. Raises are low. Pay is not too bad.

The overtime gets rough. There will be stretches of time where you have 0 overtime. Then the next week you will have mandatory 60-70 hours a week for – more... 4-6 weeks.

The work is enjoyable and the people I worked with were very pleasant. – less

unproductive antaganistic work enviroment
Test Technician (Former Employee), Tualatin, ORMay 25, 2012
Pros: na
Cons: bad random hours.
Really I didn't learn much, I put machines together from blue prints. I learned about how plumbing and fiber optics worked at a remedial level. I also learned robotics. The Co workers were terrible. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the the coworkers. Building giant machines was the best part of the job.
