    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Gentex (Michigan) in February 2015.

    Interview

    When I was on site, I was first interviewed briefly by the HR department, then interviewed by two different engineers. The people in HR told me that the number to keep in mind is 60K for a new hire, but the only way you get there is to pick up an off shift and then rely on profit sharing. Each interview had their own questions along with the standard company questions. After each interview with the engineers, they took me on a tour of a few of the plant floors and they showed off some of the technology they make.

    Application

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Gentex (Michigan) (Zeeland, MI) in February 2012.

    Interview

    I interviewed in three buildings at the Gentex complex and moved from group to group, sometimes interviewing with one person sometimes two and I was taken out to lunch. I was asked typical questions that were behavioral and technical. Gentex also likes to ask some personal questions to gauge whether you are a good fit for the area around Gentex, like hobbies. They will interview a group of candidates then hold a meeting to decide if anyone that you interviewed with wants to recruit you. Overall it was a very good experience, nice people with great attitudes.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked by almost all interviewers, "What kind of hobbies or activities do you like to do?"   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Gentex (Michigan) (Zeeland, MI) in October 2011.

    Interview

    I initially met the recruiter at a job fair. They set up an interview with me by email in the following weeks. Overall the interviews went well. Not many hard questions. It consisted of 3 separate hour long interviews each in a different building. Gentex seems to be a pretty impressive company and seem to value their employ's a lot. It's been a week and a half and i have not heard back from them.
