    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at X-Rite full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very focused, strong management, deep pockets. After struggling after two major acquisitions both finanancially and operationally being purchased by Danaher has helped the company in many ways

    Cons

    The con of the Danaher acquisition is its all about DBS their distinct implementation of the Toyota way. Unfortunately this doesn't always work so smoothly.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at X-Rite.

    Interview

    Hiring process was subpar - not like it is part of Danaher. I have heard that not all holding companies within Danaher are great. This poor experience confirmed that. I did not feel like they wanted to interview or hire me. I am not even sure why I was invited for the interview. Left the site, questioning if it was worth for me to take off from my work and attempt the interview.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    Poor interview experience and lack of diversity were key to my decision.
