Good place to work if you like having toxicity.

Good way to get experience in knowing what NOT to put up with. Maybe 1 or 2 people in management care about your well-being and constructive criticism. The rest only care about themselves. You will have it made if you are in the "Friends and family" package. Other than that. You might as well consider yourself out on any opportunity for advancement or growth. Disrespectful to employees. They do not care about quality. Its more quantity so management can get more money. All areas pay bare minimum. They do not give raises. They fail to go by their own process as well. Terrible place to work overall.


Absolutely none.


Bad environment. Toxic management. Etc.

Worst company Ihave ever worked for in my 40 years of machining………

The worst company I have ever worked for in my entire life. After 40 years, that should say something.Management is cyclic and has no drive or intention of being better.Go ahead and hitch your wagon to this lame mule, you will get what you deserve…….




You have to self evaluate your position in this company, so they never have to give you a raise……….

Its a job

If you are desperate for any job, this is the place.Good experience. They might remember your birthday on the monthly cake, but many left off, always. The quarter end bbq was fun when we cleared 54m in one project.


Great hardworking tactical folks.


Management promted by attrition. Poor acknowledgement of superior performance and effort.

Its just ok.

The pros- job itself is fine, and no one gives you a hard time for taking your earned time off. The cons however- the pay and benefits are pretty abysmal for such a huge company. Don't expect any promotions either.


Extremely low pay

Your experience matters.

Help out others considering your employer. Rate your employer.

Very much available to learn at Sanmina

It is a very good company. They don't push you too hard. If you want more work they give you more work. Great learning opportunities if you are willing.


Bonuses free lunch sometimes

Low pay and no opportunity for advancement.

Sanmina isn't a terrible place to work, but it does have some things that they should work on. They pay for all production positions is very low; barely above minimum wage. The work itself isn't difficult.

Hard work goes unnoticed

It is a place where the hard workers get overlooked. The workers make up for bad management and engineering team. If you are looking for a raise, this is not the place for you. $.32 raise after 2 years.

Sweat shop environment

Just a bad job for a company that does not care. No opportunities to advance or make a decent living. As a PM you are the designated person for all your customers to abuse because Operations does not care about commitments.

Terrible Company with Terrible Management

Terribly managed company.I would stay away from this company at all costs. There is no accountability and a lot of finger-pointing and backstabbing. I have never worked in such a negative environment. The management is terrible as they are negative and never have your back. Most of the employees there are miserable. If there was a way to give 0 stars I would.

Horrible place to work

Constant promises of more money, but nothing will ever come from it. Will do tasks that you are not qualified for. The place is falling apart and there is trash everywhere outside. They try to cut costs everywhere possible. No internal growth. Roaches everywhere. 10/10 wouldn’t recommend.

Only apply to get yourself started but don't stay long, problems with job schedules, or workloads always behind, high expectation of overtime. Nothing is organized it's mostly a garage shop with slightly better pay no room for raises.

Satisfactory if you like a 6 day work week

It wasn't a bad place to work at. The majority of the issues that arose was between people being to demanding.Mostly 20 plus year people that know it all attitudes.Like if it isn't broke don't fix it attitudes....not willing to open up to new ideas or suggestions.


Flexible hours per demand


Management gives lots of lip service to appease their employees.

No fun, too fast paced and stressful, poor management.

No fun, too fast paced and stressful, very poor management, sophisticated system, inefficient. Excessive useless not job related training. One way communication, voice not heard. Robotic old dated system.


Too busy, job security


Too much job load, no time for breaks or even PTO.

Didn't like the environment. Management got rid of employees without even investigate the situation in question. Certain cell lead talked to adults as if they are children. I would not recommend working their.

Good Starting Position

I did not work on the production floor but in the offices. Overall it is a great company. A little slow when corporate/home office gets involved with any of the pay raises or title changes.

Great team not so great upper management

Raises and Bonuses are not existent, upper management is not concerned and turn over is high. Local management is thoughtful and caring but the overall upper management does not care about the people. The local team is great and really strives to do their best to help


Great team


no raises

Its okay

Overall, good company. Pay is not as good that's why cant retain people, and once they learn, they off to greater and bigger things. You can only get pay raise when you quit the job. Health plan for a big company is not that great


holidays, opersonal holidays, Pto

Great learning experience

Sanmina has been a great place for me to grow and succeed. Not one place I have worked at before has given me the opportunities to grow so much in my career. I am pleased that I have been given the ability to rise above where I began.


Great place to work and to experience electronics.


No uniforms.
