If this is your first job, you definitely find it stressful as you need to deal with people who involved. But I can say is a good experience as u will be improve your soft skill. For sure first 6 month you feel like **** because you will think why simple thing you also do but don’t think that way.

I agree with him I hear work as manufacturing engineer starting salary is 5k but the stress level is high and turn over rate is high due to many fresh grad cannot take it (e.g long working hours)

Want quit, go silently quit. Because if you are going to forums , asking others or hesitating to quit, means you not ready to quit.

MFG is the biggest dept in Micron. There are basically 3 branches of MFG:
1. Equipment
2. Production
3. Material Handling (Newly branched out to work on efficient parts delivery from store to fab. It is a very small unit)

I will elaborate more on #1 and #2.
For Equipment, there are 2 branches: Area team which deals with the equipment capacity required for wafer loading, as well as equipment that deals with maintenance, troubleshoot, and other improvement projects. Each module will have its own senior manager heading their own area and equipment teams.

For Production, it’s main role is to call out production constraints and highlighting them for help needed. This group is all compressed shift works. It is headed by 1 senior manager, 4 shift managers and their respective production shift module engineers and technologists.

The so called “sub-department” that you called out is known as the “module”, or “area” here, namely:
1. CMP
2. CVD/PVD
3. Diffusion
4. Dry etch
5. Photo
6. Wet process

The mass hiring that you see is due to 2 main reasons: natural attrition and expansion.

For expansion, some bros there already mentioned earlier that Micron is constantly expanding its front-end manufacturing capabilities for NAND in Singapore. The current fab in expansion is F10A. Of course, some bro mentioned about the rumoured closing down of MSB in Bendemeer. I do not work in MSB, so I cannot comment on the situation there. However, MSB is the only backend testing and assembly site for Micron Singapore. The 2 other nearest backend sites are in Muar and Penang. Do note that backend facilities require much lower technical talents in its operation. As such, operating cost becomes a much heavier consideration, which is why many semiconductor companies including Intel, Broadcom, Infineon etc set up their backend facilities in Malaysia. Source: (s://.mida.gov.my/mida-news/where-are-malaysian-players-in-the-semiconductor-value-chain/) However, frontend sites are much more critical and requires lots of talents for technical breakthroughs, which is why Singapore is an important “center of excellence” for Micron’s global NAND business.

For natural attrition, we all know it happens everywhere in all companies. As of today, Micron Singapore employs about 9000 people. Taking the average turn-over statistics for Q1’22 Manufacturing Electronic sector of 1.5% per month Source: (://stats.mom.gov.sg/Pages/Labour-Market-Report-1Q-2022.aspx Page A18), It will mean 135 people leaving per month.

thanks for your detailed explanation....
I hope MSB will not close down and move their entire production to Malaysia or else I will lose my job.
In addition, I heard that both micron in SG have different pay scale in term of shift allowance, feelsbad...
