    I have been working at Keyence full-time

    Pros

    Great training program, generous pay for recent college grads, heavy investment by management into development of new employees, peer mentorship program, fun office environment, small local team, strong sales support team, clear promotion tracks, unbiased performance evaluations

    Cons

    Relatively rigid performance metrics, although nothing radically different from any other sales job. They only promote internally, which can lead to a smaller leadership pool (although improves your own odds of promotion). Cold calling obviously sucks.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Keyence (Jackson, MS) in July 2019.

    Interview

    Phone interview went great ! Very informative about pay and benefits during the interview process. Not like several other companies who shy away from bringing up pay in first interview. They pride themselves on being number one in their field.
