Photonics Lab Tester (Former Employee), Kanata, ON – July 23, 2012
Pros: relaxed work environment with fun friends
Cons: job insecurity
I had good time working at this company. I learned a lot about Nortel systems and their optical tests. Co-workers were great and very supportive. The problem in todays tech life is that companies tend to outsource and off-shore production quickly, thereby off-loading local employees. Employees, in high-tech, have to constantly, look for new jobs thereby – more... creating job insecurity syndrome. I love working with, and troubleshooting opto-electronics products and equipments. – less
Quality Inspector (Current Employee), Owego, NY – September 18, 2012
My job consists of inspecting the quality of circuit boards and making sure that no bad product has left our area or made it to our customers. You handle issues with alot of poeple from the different departments throughout the plant. The hardest part of the job is that there is always changes happening and you have to have a good memory. To me, the – more... most enjyable part is the paperwork that is included with the jobs. – less
SMT MACHINE OPERATOR, PROGRAMMER, TECH (Former Employee), Pleasant Parire – August 24, 2012
Cons: long hours
A day at Sanmina is long but fulfilling. I learn to keep busy all the time. manament often try to work with me when I have a problem. The most wonderful thing about sanmina is the employees. They help me cope with the long hours because the seven days of work was a bit long. Again, my co-workers were wonderful.

Functional Test Operator (Former Employee), Manchester, NH – July 17, 2012
start up would include finding out what location I would be working at for the day and checking the schedules for flow of work. I learned to operate several test and ICT machines and inspection of product. Immediate managment was available but sometimes hard to locate. They were spread out in many area's. My co-workers were very diverse and enjoyable – more... to work with. – less
Quality Engineer (Former Employee), San Jose, CA – May 15, 2012
Pros: good training and manufacturing practices
Cons: bad salary, no good incentives, no much benefits
You work a lot even on weekends and never get fairly rewarded. No salary increase for years and the stock options are not an incentive either. Upper Management is tough and don't treat employees with respect sometimes.
Stock Room Clerk (Current Employee), Kenosha, WI – May 14, 2012
Pros: 1/2 hour lunch
Cons: short breaks, barely any raises
High paced work in the stock room. I pick parts to send to the floor where they put them on circuit boards to make various products. I also unload trucks, delivery jobs to floor, use a floor jack to put skids away.
Management is always fair with us an sticks up for us in anyway they can. My co-works are pleasant and very helpful.
The hardest part – more... of the job is balancing all my responsibilities and to pick the jobs fast as we are expected to.
I really enjoy the ability to move around the plant doing various tasks for my supervisor. I like the fact that I do a variety of things every day and the job does not become boring. – less
