    I have been working at Gentex (Michigan) full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good quarterly profit-sharing bonuses, pleasant co-workers, supportive atmosphere. Its a good place to gain experience in that people tend to be cooperative rather than competitive in the workplace. Gentex also supports the concept of family first.

    Cons

    Executive leadership is losing sight of the little guys. It's become a cut-throat power struggle at the upper level instead of the cooperation necessary to move the company forward with new products. Need to broaden product lines to remove dependency on the automotive market.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Gentex (Michigan).

    Interview Details

    Submitted my resume through a college career fair. Was contacted my an HR recruiter requesting a phone interview to discuss potential employment options at the company. This led to a phone interview with the software test manager. Later I was asked to come in for about 5 one-hour long interviews. A few weeks later I was called back for a second on-site interview that was a bit shorter. The entire process took almost 2 months.
