    Application

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

    Interview

    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.
