    Very dedicated people; very global company; balanced global region revenue.


    Cash Strapped at a time they'd like to complete the acquisition of current Joint Venture NEC TOKIN. Difficulty getting funding when there is a Price Fixing suit ongoing in Japan. Stock under performing.

    Close the Florida office.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at KEMET (Dallas, TX) in June 2015.


    There were a lot of little interviews. I had a 15 minute interview with an internal recruiter, a 30 minute interview with HR, and an hour long conference call interview with the Director of Sales, Director of Client Services and one other person. I had a follow up, in person interview with the Director of Client Services and a final interview with the Area Sales Manager.
