If you want quick money, yes go to Sanmina, it's not a career job. There's no advancement, favoritism, micromanagement, pay sucks, benefits sucks, managers sucks, that place is horrible, go some place else. If you don't take my word for it, then go out there and see for yourself and then you will regret it. I promise you

I was hired through an agency to work at Sanmina. The interview was brutal; I was criticized for my employment history and lack of experience, but got the job nonetheless. Despite the lengthy commute and lack of benefits, I enjoyed my experience. Work was decent, and my colleagues are really nice. As of this review, they rewarded my contributions by letting me go suddenly (through the agency, over the phone).
Pros
Decent work and friendly coworkers
Cons
They drag their feet when it comes to hiring agency employees permanently

Unless your straight out of High school and need experience KEEP LOOKING if you come across this place. They bait you with promises of raises and things that would be normal for any other company. Once your in tho. NOTHING. I was even told "WE DON'T GIVE RAISES!!!" THE AD THAT I RESPONDED TO HAD AN HOURLY WAGE RANGING FROM $18-$25 HOURLY. When I called them out on it they tried to call me a lier!! After producing the screenshot that I took (Thank God) when I saw the ad. They them tried to place the blame on the Temp service they used during that time. Unbelievable!!!! The place is an OSHA violating sespool of a mess and should be investigated immediately!!!! STAY AWAY!!!
Pros
None at all!!!
Cons
Everything. I'm just mad that I can never get that time back!!!

All I'll say is I don't think you're paid for what you are expected to do. Plus when I started working there,I saw most people leave cause of the pay and management. I however loved the people I worked with
Pros
Good people on team
Cons
Not decent wage/management

Not a diverse company at all, and not enough pay for the work performed. Overall the job is ok so but definitely not good for a career move. I would not recommend this job to others.

It is a typical job with quotas and deadlines. You'll be able to learn skills that won't be needed in daily life. Management is horrible. Coworkers are your family, they will look out for you if you allow them to.
Pros
perfect place to gain work experience, family style culture
Cons
short lunch, terrible management

its manufacturing so it to be expected fast pace & repetitive, Very easy work but you must be very detailed oriented. My boss is good but the company itself will not give you promises, it only gives you an open end contract so you will never know when your last day is, no benefits, only 2 week vacation, no sick days, no raises, there might be other job opportunities but still no raises just a different job or task
Pros
2 weeks vacation
Cons
no benifits
