    Organized company, excellent staff, clean professional looking office. Top notch system in terms of office space/furniture. Admin assistants need more to do than just wait for the phone to ring and the mail to come in.


    Admin assistants dont have enough work to do around the office. Morning duties are to change the lighting, start the coffee, change the night answering machine to the daytime hold machine. Then around noon you wait for the mailman. When he comes in you need about 30 minutes to go through the mail. After that you wait to leave at 5pm.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Ann Arbor, MI
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at HIC (Ann Arbor, MI) in May 2012.


    Interviewing for Horiba was a lengthy and poor experience. The manager refuses to hire people directly, so in order to be considered you must go through a recruiter (which in itself is a terrible experience if you have ever dealt with them). Then if offered a job, you have to undergo a 6 month evaluation period. At the end of the evaluation period you are either hired or dismissed.

    Interview Questions

    • There were not too many difficult questions, but the interviews were very long. I had 2 interviews each lasting 2 hours. First with the hiring manager, then a complete repeat of the same interview with the supervisor. Overall it was a 5 month process. They are extremely slow and lethargic when it comes to the interview process.   Answer Question
