Test Operator (Former Employee), Memphis, TN – September 22, 2014
Pros: we was a family
My Day started with me clocking in at 215, my shift started at 230 but i has to get my (pass down)which is an update from 1st shift employee on how my line was running, and weather or not i had to finish a part replacement on the computer hard drive or if i needed to go ahead and check over their work and start the system. Then once i checked my line – more... i found an order that QC had pushed out and was ready for me to test in the computer system. Once i finished logging all the system part numbers and serial numbers into the computer and everything passed it was time for me to grab my cables either the client who unit i was testing had ordered them or i had to use what we called golden equipment which belonged to the facility. to test the unit. Once the unit was fully cabled it was time to start the testing through computer software. The hardest part of this job was working with 5 other males who felt intimidated by me because my boss hired the only woman in our department. and i was good at what i did. The most amazing part was we were all a family. From QC, OBA, Configuration, Material Handlers, Packout and us Test Operators. We celebrated every Holiday together because the company always had so kind of gathering for its employees. Management was amazing they greeted u every mourning and afternoon. We where always having meeting about the company and what was going on inside of it. My supervisor was amazing i couldn't have asked for a better man to have worked for. The most enjoyable part of this job was the learning process. Being able to learn how to use different types of computer systems to test equipment. And knowing that Test was the heart of the company. Made us want to go to work and work extra hard everyday, And to know we was appreciated for what we did for the company and the clients who were relying on us to build and test their product. – less
My day starts at 7am to 3:30 pm. I have learned a lot of skill at Jabil. That consist with working and building on software's. The management team there is very poor at time there is no communication with employees. I love the people I work with on a day to day base. The hardiest part about my job is there's no moving up in the company. The most enjoyable – more... part about my job is meeting new people. – less

Cons: short breaks, not consistent in work schedule, short notice weekend work
As a whole I think Jabil, is an OK place to work. Not saying it's the Best atmosphere in the world. It has its days where it's enjoyable & easy & other days management & supervisors are rude. I just started though.

RF Intern (Current Employee), St. Petersburg, Fl – July 15, 2014
As an intern I have been exposed to all levels of my department. I have been allowed to work on my own, presenting my work when a project is done and I have done guided work with seniors in the department.

Coming into the workplace getting myself ready for the task that is given. I have learned to work as a team player, to manage time wisely, and to work in a steady pace.

employee (Current Employee), poughkeepsie – May 9, 2014
Pros: don't do it
Cons: work somewhere else
A typical day is full with uncertainties. I have learned that a large company such as Jabil Circuits, should have a more hands on approach to the small cell it acquires to, bring it to the highest level of corporate responsibility. This location promotes bullying from mgmt - This location has serious EOE violations. People walking around crying and – more... complaining of heart issues because of all the stress and long hours. Hourly people are putting in 15-20 hr days with no time for life balance, and if you complain you will be fired. This place has been called a sweatshop from IBM employees for yrs. Watch out people you will regret this job site. – less
