Hi all, OP here.
The response that I received here is overwhelming. And truly, I'm sorry that many of you have had unfortunate experiences with GlobalFoundries HR. I will be patient especially during this crazy time with the new year coming in and the pandemic and whatnot. With that being said, I will heed everyone's advice and remain vigilant in following up and trying to get ahold of HR, or what's left of them at least.
It seems that many people have gripes with the HR at GF, well before Omicron reared its ugly head. And even worse, it seems like there's a disconnect between the workers at GF and the upper management. From the outside looking in, it does come across as a disappointing surprise.
But I have my reasons for still wanting to pursue a job at GF. Namely, I'd like to break into the semiconductor manufacturing industry and GF has been on my radar for a while, amongst other companies whom I've either haven't heard back or have been rejected.
Truth be told, this is all too familiar to me because right now my current job has all of these facets: An incompetent, juvenile, clique-y HR department, geriatric upper management that has no idea what's going on, middle managers who can only be described as f**king tyrants, and an undertrained, overworked, disrespected body of engineers and line operators.
Does it seem foolish that I'd even want to consider pursuing a job here despite everyone's warnings? Yeah, I would say so. But, I've already navigated an arguably more toxic work atmosphere and I think I'd at least try to survive at GF a little longer.
