Industrial Training at ST Microelectronics Muar

ST Microelectronic Muar

It’s never a sin for you to dream big right? Oh well, at least I’m trying. In my last post I’m having this really big thought of doing Industrial Training at some big company but alas, I get none. It’s just some big talk from me and the reality is it is hard to get into all of these big companies after all.

And so here I am. It’s has been 3 month since I’m doing my Industrial Training in this semiconductor company. This company/factory is also known as ST Microelectronics Muar. It is located in, oh my! Isn’t it obvious already? Muar, Johor of course. This company produced an Integrated Circuit (IC) for cars, mobile phone, electronic devices and bla..bla..bla..

And so, how do I get into this company?

It’s quite simple actually. You send your resume to their Human Resource Department. Do it by post. I mean you send your application via post (pos laju or etc.) and not by an email. Google for their address and sent your resume away!

What? You said you’re too lazy to Google for their address? Oh well, here you go;

Human Resource Department.
ST Microelectronics Sdn. Bhd.,
Tanjung Agas Industrial Area,
P.O. Box 28, 84007 Muar,

Is it easy for my application to be accepted by this company?

Err.. I have no idea. But based on my experience, they will most likely to accept your application since this company really loves to have students to do their Industrial Training at their company. Plus, it’s in Muar, so the competition to get in here is lesser. Oh! And one more thing is your Industrial Training must be more than 3 month. Less than that, they will reject you.

What do I learn through my Industrial Training?

In this company, I guess there are a lot of things for you to explore. From the prospect of learning process, working environment and the real situation of work life, I would say yes! You will learn a lot.

What is my daily task as a trainee?

Theoretically, all you need to do is to be your supervisor’s assistant. Hence, what you need to do is to follow your supervisor for a task. All of it is really depend on your supervisor. But practically, the workload that you will have is not predictable. Sometimes, you will feel very busy with lots of work to do but sometimes you will feel very bored to death!

How about the entire employee and my supervisor?

Oh well, they are great! Yeah really! A bunch of a very nice people surrounds you. Very kind to each other and a very healthy working environment are being practice in here.

What is the working time for a trainee?

Working time for all trainees is from 8.30 am until 6.15 pm, Monday till Friday.

What about the allowance?

Oh! The crucial part isn’t it. For degree level, every month you will get allowance up to RM450. While for diploma level you will get RM 250 per month.

In conclusion?

I think this company will serve as a great medium for you to learn more about working environment (i.e. factory environment for sure) and such. And it’s become even greater if you’re planning to permanently work in here since they will most likely to hire you if you perform well during your time as trainee with this company. But working in Muar? Mehhh! But it’s all coming down to your preferences. If you are up to it, why not, right?
