Kemet was one best companies in Simpsonville SC to work but they had to down size and layoffs the employees in the past. The work is not hard but very easy. It is a very clean work environment and laid back. There quality is high but management works with there employees.

Kemet gave me every opportunity to advance while employed there. The provided me with the education and tools I needed to succeed in the position I held. There were plenty of opportunities to advance if one puts his/her mind to it.
Distribution Account Manager (Current Employee) – Simpsonville, SC – December 12, 2017
I enjoy my job, fast pace and very busy. Lots of good people which makes a good company. Daily work included answering customer emails, entering orders , updating spread sheets. Job relocation is the reason I am looking for a new job.
Kemet was the first job that I had . At Kemet I was introduced to the manufacturing environment. It was fast paced with emphasis on safety, quality, and productivity in a team environment. Kemet makes capacitors of various types. A company that makes electronics must be on the cutting edge of technology. As an employee at Kemet, you get an opportunity to learn innovative manufacturing processes and work with some technological advanced equipment. The only problem at Kemet was getting laid off unexpectedly. I am considering reapplying to once again join the Kemet team.
Shipping and Receiving/ Custodian (Former Employee) – Simpsonville, SC – February 16, 2017
I love working at Kemet this was my first job real professional job and I truly loved this job but with slow demands for the products, they had to do a major lay-off. If not i would still be working there.
The hardest part of the job was getting laid off due to market fluctuations. Immediate supervisors and management were superb and supportive of upward movement of employees. I miss the team aspect of working there.
I don't know of many people who actually looked forward to going to work every day, but I can truthfully say that of my time at Kemet. Although there were times where I was frustrated and overextended, I was able to work well in the Kemet system to achieve the company's goals while at the same time realizing my personal goals.
Kemet Electronics is a multinational company with many talented engineers and scientists from all over the world. It was my interactions with these people that made working at Kemet such a joy. Every day was a new challenge and working with people from all across the globe to solve complex technical issues was part of my every day routine. I learned how to work with different cultures from many different educational backgrounds and successfully complete our project goals.
Extremely challenging work atmosphere.
Sometimes critical information was not communicated as it should have been.
