Sr. Product Marketing Manager (Current Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAOctober 9, 2018

I expected a company that had been around for 50+ years to have good processes and training applicable to business roles.

Field service work.
Customer Engineer (Former Employee) –  Irving, TXOctober 2, 2018
This was working as a field service technician. Travel was required but I liked the travel. Was told as long as I was willing to travel I'd never be laid off. This was a LIE.

E/M Assembler Technician (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXSeptember 27, 2018
This is clean-room assembly line work. Work never stopped, we built many different small and large assemblies and then attached them to a main frame. It was the only area where you built your first assembly piece and did not have to build it again for another 2 days.

a good stepping stone
Buyer (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXSeptember 13, 2018
Applied Materials can be a great place to work if you can manage to become regular full time. As a contractor, you don't receive the best benefit packages, no bonuses, limited PTO/Sick days. With it being semiconductor Supply change, that can really effect the job security. If the company is not ramping, then the possibilities of you getting laid off greatens. Layoffs can be common.
Pros
fixed schedule
Cons
benefits, bonuses, job security
