Lots of upside selling high dollar specialty bearings in to multiple defense and aerospace Original equipment manufacturers. Small managable 3 state territory. Good benefit package.
Limited customer base. Four to Five days a week on the road. Tough with young kids, ideal for single person, or empty nester willing to try.
Advice to Management
New products should be developed to expand market segment away from miltary and aerospace. Need more opportunities to grow sales and need more products
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Kaydon (Sumter, SC) in January 2014.
They are pretty laid back. If they think you are someone they want to pursue they will pursue you; however, overall they lack a sense of urgency within their hiring framework. I met with two people for the first interview, an HR manager and an Operations manager. They were very friendly and helpful. For the second round of interviews, I basically met with everyone in the office and plant on the managerial side. It was a long day of several interviews, but none of them were hard or stressfull.
