Senior Test Engineer (Former Employee) – Chandler, AZ – September 4, 2018
Company is more concerned about acquiring other companies than focusing on current issues. CEO is always asking for employees to save money even though he brags about having multiple consecutive quarters of profit.
Worklife balance aided by having Medical Clinic onsite
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Gresham, OR – September 4, 2018
Microchipp is a place where you can learn a lot if you apply yourself to posted opportunities. Learn about posted jobs to see if your skills match or are close enough to interview for and prepare. Also, Best part of job was schedule that allowed time for taking care of personal business during daytime. Hard thing was constant change but learned to become flexible and learn to keep up with changes. Long hours and night shift became hard to deal with over many years working same shift. Had many great supervisors and leads over a lon time. Many willing to mentor and support my desire to aply for opportunities and guide me in developing a plan to be efficient in new roles.
onsite clinic, short work weeks, great pay, overtime available
long hours, missing people to cover tools, never saw daylight
INSIDE SALES REPRESENTATIVE (Current Employee) – Novi, MI – September 2, 2018
This is one of the best companies I have worked for. It was such a pleasant environment. I enjoyed the staff as they were a group of very professional and respectful people. I would go back to this company in a heartbeat.
Senior Product Manufacturing Engineer (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – August 30, 2018
Microchip employees are absolutely wonderful your co-workers are your family away from home and working with a team that is competent is very fulfilling. The work loads are heavy and sometimes the meetings are abundant, but in the end you have a good feeling for a well completed accomplishment.
A/R Cash Applications Specialist/Collector (Former Employee) – Chandler, AZ – August 12, 2018
My day at work was downloading the Wells Fargo report and retrieve the wires, credit card payments and Ach's. Download the lock box bank reports for the Canada, Pasadena and Chicago locations. Apply all payments Wires, Credit card transactions,ach's, credit card payments and any transfers. Balance daily all posted transactions, and called on customers that short paid or over paid. Worked with team of collectors to work on discrepancies. I learned to work in a high work environment and learned a lot of the semiconductor industry. The culture was great, we all worked together as a team. The hardest part of the job was that I was the only one to post all payments for all of the US. Large volumes. Most enjoyable part of the job was getting the job done on time and felt great I could balance every month end. I enjoyed my job. I also issued all credits to credit cards for returned products.
Being able to enjoy breaks and after hour activities with colleagues. Team building outings.
Production Specialist (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – August 8, 2018
Very fast paced area to work in and kept me busy all night. I also enjoyed training new hires and learning new equipment as it came in. I also learned after 20 years how to be patient with others and work as a team
Supervisor (Current Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – July 31, 2018
Management is still the old Atmel management. Having worked at several semiconductor companies in my career, this is by far the worst. The pay/ health benefits are horrible. You will have a hard time living in COS with the cost of living and your pay. I know that I am giving them a poor review, but before you work here, you should talk to people that currently are here and ask their opinion. I am one of many who feel this way. I have also heard bad things about Microchips other fabs from current and past employees. I have also talked to many vendors who have worked in their fabs and they all feel the same. There are many other great semiconductor companies out there who value their employees. This is not one of them.
Just a job
Poor Site Management, Health Benefits, working conditions
OPERATOR (Former Employee) – Tempe, AZ – July 26, 2018
You are gonna work with older people. It will take you at least 5 minutes to get to the bathroom if you are in the clean room. Don't drop the cassettes and don't fall asleep in Photo, while inspecting.
Applications Manager (Current Employee) – San Jose, CA – July 19, 2018
It is a company who doesn't understand basics of new product development; schedules are unreal; when there is a problem, the "team work" culture falls apart; big sacrifices are made even losses in personal life with no reward
Production Specialist (Former Employee) – Gresham, OR – July 10, 2018
Reasonable place to work for all around. I worked in one of their fabs. I advanced quickly and would still be working there if it wasn't for a major move. Starting pay is decent but later on the raises get fewer and further between. If you're wanting to put in the time and effort and want to increase your pay you should be looking to advance within the company, not expect significant and consistent raises.
all breaks paid for except 30 mins for lunch, compressed shift means long weekends
