Since you are in the semiconductor company, you probably be assigned to a process module and have to do servicing for customers (eg trobleshooting, replacing parts and installation of machine etc). This means u probably spend a lot time in their fab room and sometimes you might need to do overtime or weekend just to get things done as your performance is dependent on them. Fortunately depending on company, they might give you transport claim or allowance (which means extra money and is excluded from CPF). From my experience, I was given transport allowance but there are quite a few times I have work until midnight before I can go home so this job is not for everyone. i hope this helps.

Thank you for your reply. Do you have your personal vehicle or do you usually call grab to travel? Because i worked as an electrical engineer before but it was more of an office bound job. Right now, im still exploring other kind of engineering jobs although my interest in engineering is slowly fading.

I usually take public transport becuz it can save a lot of my transport allowance and is close to my home. I do take cab but only when I am short of time and to work only cuz its expensive. For my company, the transport allowance is quite decent and it can increase if I owned a vehicle (which I do not becuz again its very expensive especially with the price of COE now).

I mean if you are tired of office bound job, you can give field service engineer a try because you can get to do a lot of hands on work at customer's site which can pass time very fast as well as interacting with customers and colleagues alike. Then sometimes you might get to travel various sites if you have multiple customers so you wont get bored. I also heard if you are v good at serving your customers, the customers may try to 'snatch' you for a higher paying job. But like I said b4, this job is not meant from everyone, it can be very tiring and your experience may vary depending on who your customers is. On the other hand, there is also another job called process support engineer where you also somewhat deal with customers but instead of hand-on, you do more of clutching and analyzing data based on the machine performance and then suggest on improvement but once again, experience may vary depending on the customers.

I will usually take public transport as it saves a lot of my transport allowance and my customer sites are close to my home. I only cab if I am short of time and to work only becuz its expensive. For my company, the transport allowance is decent and also increases if I owned a car (which I do not becuz again, its expensive especially with the price of the COE now).

If you are tired of office bound jobs, you can try field service engineer. You get to travel to customers sites with no concern of transport fees and get a lot of hands on work inside their fab labs. You will also spend a lot of times interacting with customers to meet their needs and sometimes may need to travel to different sites so you probably wont feel bored. I also heard if you are v good at what you are doing, customers may try to 'snatch' you by offering higher paying jobs. But as I mentioned b4 this job is not for everyone, it can be v tiring and your experience may vary depending on the customers. On the other hand, you can also take process support engineer. You still interact with customers but you spend time clutching data and analyzing numbers for machines instead of hands on. But once again, the experience is depend on customers

Donít wanna disclose where exactly, but the reason: it was my og plan, I wanted to move away from eng but itís hard and the new place gave me a conditional offer. So it was still uncertain. Hence I took the micron job as a backup first and when the uncertainty cleared and I knew it is what I want. I quite from the micron job. The new was was to start in july.

Good for you. Its a little tough for me to transition from engineering, to the field i want to go, which is healthcare. Only decided i want to go healthcare on my final year of uni.
