Overall Reviews at Intel

Group Leader | Hillsboro, OR | Mar 28, 2020
High functioning employees, great team building and lots of training.
Working for Intel is more a lifestyle than a job. I worked for many technology and new equipment ramps with critical deadlines. There are many urgent opportunities to keep you challenged. It's the kind of job you really have to love the work because there is so much of it depending on the production cycle. Intel is a great place for opportunity to try something new and plenty to learn.Top notch team building activities. Not a very good place to work for the timid.

Fast paced environment.
There are many opportunities to change career path and explore other fields. Positions available at sites all around the country and world for that matter.

High Expectations & Company Impact Culture
You can reinvent yourself every two years tackling new things, learning new skills, and gaining visibility - you have to be self motivated and curious

Benefits are off the chart!
They have almost everything you can think of right on site. You can even get your car detailed, or Dry Cleaning, while you're working. Great food for breakfast and lunch and even food truck days. Spa and a gym too. Just to name some perks.
ProsBenefits and perks
ConsHard to advance for hourly workers.
Engineering Lead | Jones Farm, OH | Feb 27, 2020
Some of the most intelligent people I have ever known.
Working with over achievers over achieving most fun I ever had and 20 years went by like a blink. I helped the world enjoy Laptops with the computing power of a desk top.
Manufacturing Technician | Chandler, AZ | Jan 2, 2020
I really don't have much to comment this is a great journey so far beside as everywhere you can work there's always those people who never like some new fox to succeed but that is part of the road as long as you care you will be fine.

Intel is a Great Place to work !
I thoroughly enjoyed working for Intel for more than 15 years. There were many very interesting projects to work on. I also enjoyed working with my fellow Intel employees they were all great people.
Communication Specialist | Rio Rancho, NM | Feb 5, 2020
High Standards and Ethics
Intel is a great company, although not all business groups are great to work for. It has a culture of strong ethics and high standards. The company is full of brilliant, smart individuals who bring their A game to work every single day. The benefits are fantastic, and the company has a lot to offer from a personal and professional development perspective.
ProsGreat benefits, sabbatical, autonomy, working with brilliant people
ConsIt can be a tough/demanding environment. It's not for those who do not want to work hard.
Mechanical Technician | Hillsboro, OR | Jan 16, 2020
Decent place to work but tech role isn't a career
Intel provides a good job (starting pay, benefits, hours) for mechanical technicians but very little in the way of advancement for this job role. The mechanical tech role has no real opportunities to learn anything outside of your very specific job scope, meaning you only gain experience on limited equipment. Some of the more in demand skills in the industry (electrical troubleshooting, basic I&C skills) we aren't allowed to do due to company policy. Overall the mechanical technician role is not a bad job just not a good career if you're a younger person looking to learn new skills or advance up "the ladder".

Good company
I can only speak to the projects I worked on which were pleasant and productive. I worked with a group of editors who assisted technical marketing engineers.

Questions And Answers about Intel

Why did you leave your job at Intel?

Completed construction of FAB 42 building
Answered Jul 8, 2019
CS management is an idiot. The clique-ish culture made for an hostile environment to a newcomer. A bunch of juvenile guys that spoke badly about the company, the management and coworkers.

What is the interview process like at Intel?
Asked Jun 8, 2016
Phone interview with HR then on site interview with the hiring manager
Answered Feb 9, 2018
When I was interviewed for a job in 1988, it was very laid-back. Ask me about my previous jobs and ask me how I can improve the process from my previous job (if there is a need of improvement). Then, I was hired...Now-a days, it's totally different. Phone interview, and job offered over the phone.
