I worked at HIC full-time (More than 8 years)
Great place as far as products made and the people that work there.
Communication. It should start at the top and waterfall down and it does not.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed 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.
