The GF Candidate Journey 

Applying to a new job can be exciting. You’ve researched companies, determined what best fits your career aspirations and decided to apply. Then after you submit your application, where there should be excitement, there’s silence. At GlobalFoundries, we try to communicate as much as possible along the way. We’ve created this step-by-step guide to give you a behind-the-scenes view of our recruiting process.

Step-by-step GlobalFoundries Hiring Process 

Note: While timelines can vary by role, this guide provides ranges that apply to most regions and countries across GlobalFoundries 


Once you find a role that fits your experience and career goals, submit your resume and additional details through our online portal. Afterwards, candidates will be prompted to set up a candidate homepage, which you can use to track your application status. 

Timing : Our recruiters typically spend two weeks reviewing applications before selecting qualified applicants and scheduling phone interviews. 

Reviewing your application & scheduling a phone screen  

If your experience and ambition satisfy the job requirements, we’ll reach out to schedule an initial phone screening, where you’ll have a chance to share more about your background and learn more about the role and GlobalFoundries. Depending on the position, a recruiter may then send you additional skill-based assessments. 

Timing : If you’re selected to move on to the next round, our team will reach out to schedule your in-person interviews—all of which will happen within three to five weeks. If you are not selected, we’ll let you know.

In-person interviews 

Meet members of the hiring team in a series of interviews.  At this stage, we want to get to know you better, your preferred learning style, the environment where you do your best work, and through stories about your experience. It is important that you show us the real you.  Depending on the role, you’ll meet with between three and eight stakeholders. We may ask you to complete additional skills-based assessments at this point in the process. 

Timing : The in-person interview process can take three to five weeks, depending on scheduling and the number of interviews. You should receive feedback from your recruiter with an update on possible next steps five to ten days after your final in-person interview.  

Receiving an offer 

If you’re selected for the role, you’ll receive a verbal and written offer including information on your new job title, team, compensation, and benefits. 

Onboarding & preparing to start your new role 

If you accept our offer, we’ll send you new-hire paperwork and based on the regional requirements for your country, ask you to complete a background check and for some roles, a drug screening. 

Timing : Onboarding can take approximately three weeks, but timelines vary.
