Senior Test Development Engineer (Former Employee) – Saint Petersburg, FL – January 23, 2016
I got laid off from Jabil Circuit after working for them for about 6 months. Company culture is paranoid; policies are punitive and vague. I was able to do my job adequately but a new vice president stepped in who wanted to outsource the responsibilites of my group to 3rd party companies in the guise that it would be cheaper. Working for a company of 175000 employee across the globe means that you are just a number and could lose your job at any time. I worked full-time so my work was "at will" employment. If you're looking for a stable job at a stable company, don't come running to Jabil.
One example of the company policies are through the use of security badges. Jabil required you to scan your security badge at every door that had a badge scanner. The VP who was responsible for restructuring management used the resulting badge scans as a means to track the number of hours employees were working. It was found that my entire group was not working enough hours so in turn management let us know to work more: 45-50 hours a week. Given my personal circumstances, including 2 disabilities, this was a difficult proposition. The practices by Jabil's upper management are questionable at best. Bottom line: find work elsewhere, you'll be better of.
Lots of company events
Paranoid company policies and unethical practices.

During my week at Jabil Circuit I was always busy with tasks and learning new skills. The management team were very thoughtful and helpful, co-workers were great if you needed help they would help you no bother. Some tasks were a little hard and required you to get a few people to work on it but it would get done, overall I had a great experience at Jabil Circuit.

anonymous (Current Employee) – St. Petersburg – September 4, 2015
Employees are treated like bodies. You are there to do your job and not offer input or ideas for improvement. Many people in management have good intentions, but are limited in what they can do for their people. There is little room for advancement.
There are many people who are only in their jobs because they have been at the company for a long time. Talent tends to leave and the employees who remain are frustrated. Stress related illness is very common.
Coworkers/Company Events/ Great Benefits
No advancement opportunities/ Management is not empowered
Jabil Circuit taught me how to advance in known skills. As well as taught me new skills. And work ethics. Some days were more challenging than others. Our manager taught us how to work calmily under pressure.
My day consist of finding lost material and finding the root cause for why its lost if I can not find it. I am working in SAP thru out the day and I am helping solve issues the manufacturing lines may have. I work with a great team and we get the job done. I am compassionate about my work and I love a challenge.
