Learning new tools, Good management, Good team players, and Challenging
Etch Manufacturing Associate (Current Employee), Chandler, AZ – March 25, 2013
Pros: technically challenging
Cons: technically challenging
* Moving WIP, and qualifying tools, learning alot about the tools. There is a lot of work to be done daily. * Management is very informative, teaching about the management system that helps productivity, and smooth operating proceedures. * The co-workers are good team players, and good friends. I've found the company to have a feel of family among the – more... whole company. * There is still a lot to learn. I am enjoying the challenge. – less
Engineering (Former Employee), Austin Texas – January 23, 2013
Pros: people and products
Cons: politics and rep for layoffs
FSL offers some of the best people in the industry, however thier constant cycle of layoffs has given them a bum rep! Politics never seem to change, management on group by group basis. Broad spectrum of oppoutunities with wide product portfolio.
Production Operator (Former Employee), Chandler, AZ – November 25, 2012
Cons: short breaks for everything was so far-break rooms, cafeteria
Manually loaded and unloaded product into tools, kept track of inventory and prioritize work using computers, and I maintained quality control in a fast-paced clean room environment. Here I learned about keeping up with communication not only in computers inputting info on processes, but with co-workers ( witched changed daily). Communication was vital – more... concerning the quality/production of product of time-sensitive processes, and having to deal with different personalities. It was a challenge at times, but having an open mind and communication skills made it a productive day. I was recognized by management for being both quality and quantity oriented. The hardest part of the job was when tools came down and production wasn't going anywhere, and I liked that at the end of the day was a good day. – less

Test Operator (Current Employee), Austin, TX – October 25, 2012
Pros: i get payed ok.
Cons: no overtime, no chance to be full time, no benefits, no sick time, have to take off two weeks in december with no pay
I like the poeple I work with but the floor is metal and not very easy to walk on for a 12 hour shift. My co-workers are ready to help each other when needed. maagement sometime forgets that we can not hit our numbers when we have no work but when you need help they are willing to help out.
Below satisfactory production supervisors and below satisfactory training.
Bay Specialist (Current Employee), Arizona – October 25, 2012
Pros: walking 10-15 miles a day while at work
Cons: compressed work schedule
The bay I was in when I started was run by foreign operators/trainers who were hard to understand, lacked people skills and used intimidation and degrading behavior as part of their training. The leads and supervisors could care less about any work issues you might have. I am still employed here and the most enjoyable part of the day is still leaving – more... the job site at the end of the shift. – less
Contract Employee (Former Employee), Chandler Az – October 9, 2012
Pros: lots of work
Cons: layoffs every yr.
Great Company,But Management lacks People skills. i was Certfied on 57% of thier tool set in my 2+ yrs i was there.I most likely would never work for them again unless they restructure. There Management or leadership In chandler Az.People are not happy and employees get no support from UpperManagment. When Employees do a great job they Dont even get – more... a ( good job )from Management. Most employee are just bitter and have givven up on Freescale. I believe if the Employee is happy the company's profit go up ...... Mr. LOWE(CEO) please consider being an Undercover BOSS ... Freescale could use an Audit from an Ind.Company to asset the damage management has done at FREESCALE INC ( Chandler AZ ) site – less
