Maintenance and Manufacturing Technician (Current Employee) –  Kildare8 June 2018
Great company for salary and benefits, but ultimately just a number. Wage discrepancies between the same job level are vast and the shift calander means you never get a full weekend to yourself.

Great place to work but really hard work expected.
Process Technician and Diffusion Area (Former Employee) –  Kildare6 January 2018
The 11 years there where the education I needed to be the best at what I do. If not for the politics and management fight to the get too the top. I could not say a bad word about the place.

Intel is a large profitable and secure but inflexible organisation
Production Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Liexlip, Kildare, Ireland29 November 2017
Intel is a good place to work because it is stable, the company is very profitable and employees are well rewarded (salary+shift premium+bonus). It can be a little difficult in terms of flexibility and bureaucracy, there is definitely a way of speaking and Intel vocabulary that helps one fit in.
Pros
stable, good salary, medical insurance
Cons
danger of group-think

A typicl Fun yet busy day
Corporate Services Facilities Manager/Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Kildare13 June 2016
My typical day started at 6am when I would review the pass-down and system alarm log from the previous night shift. this would help me identify potential issues that needed immediate attention i.e. be it safety, quality or system issues. At 7am I would meet with the shift technicians i.e. those starting and finishing and review the pass-down. I would use this to ask questions about certain issues that I identified as priority. Once this meeting ended I would review the PM schedule with the technicians starting and if necessary change the schedule and work allocation based on priority issues.
At 8am I would hold a meeting with the Area manage, system engineers and contractors. At this meeting we would discuss any safety issues, major issues passed down from shift and changes to the planned schedule for that day, review the alarm log and any redundancy risks we had with our systems and the plans to eliminate that risk and the timelines to complete the required work.
9am was the higher level meeting with the department manager and all the area managers. Once again safety was the first topic of discussion followed by any major issues that were affecting any of the various departments and what action plans were in place to address and the expected completion date.
once these meeting were completed my day would be spent traversing the site checking on all work that was being completed by the technicians ensuring everything was being done in a safe manner and helping them with any issues to the best of my ability. During these walks i would carry out safety audits of the areas
  more... i passed through, identifying issues and escalating to the relevant owner.
I would have meetings with the maintenance scheduler to ensure all upcoming work for the week ahead was on schedule and we had the required resources to complete and if work had to be deferred due to priority issue i would include the relevant system owner in this meeting. Also engaging contractors if the issue required their support to correct.
The rest of my day would include running reports on what corrective maintenance issues were still open, who needed to close the CM be it technician or contractor, checking on technician participation in safety and quality initiatives, checking that the correct technician hours were logged for activities completed, reviewing spare part orders and approving and following up on ETA's for active open orders.
In between these activities i would meet with the technicians, engineers and contractors during the day for short breaks for some down time and general chats.
