    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Zeeland, MI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Gentex (Michigan) (Zeeland, MI) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Two interviews, initially very informal with potential manager, supervisor and manager in IT department, second more formal, answering questions provided by CEO.

    The first was held in the cafeteria area, (disconcertingly) behind doors telling guests to go to a different door. Free coffee and soda and snack vending machines were available. All three were surprised that I hadn't already met with HR.

    References and employability were determined between interviews.

    The second interview was in an office, and was almost entirely read off a printout of (I'm guessing) an email. I was then given a short tour of the part of the facility under the potential manager's control.

    Negotiation

    Offer was better than I was expecting, despite being told Gentex has lower than average salaries, so didn't try to negotiate.

    Operator Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Gentex (Michigan) (Zeeland, MI) in January 2011.

    Interview

    I applied online and the next day I received a call scheduling an early morning interview. At the interview I was asked about my skills, my job history, and how I felt about overtime. At the end of the interview I was asked to go take a drug test and sign up with the temp agency you have to go through first. I went to the temp agency and was required to take a short IQ test. I then had to take a packet of papers to the drug testing facility and take the test. I then waited about a week before they called me and told me I had passed. I was told to attend an assessment and had to come in for a week from 8am-3pm. The assessment test was a series of motor-skills test and specific job techniques. you have to handle glass and cases for mirrors. The first half of the week you just have to perform the tests, but in the 2nd half you must time your self and gain a consistency. A person then tests you and times you, recording all of your results. At the end of the week they told us that they will go over our results and we should expect a call within a couple of days. The next day I got the call saying I was hied as a temp and I started the following Monday.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you Feel about overtime? Some of our workers work 70 hours a week?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    You are not able to negotiate anything. Even for salary jobs you are given no alternative options. you accept what they offer or you decline the job. My advice would be that you are confident in working 60 hours a week (minimum) and do not mind that you will have MAYBE two days off a month. The overtime pay is great, so if you're more of a money thinker, then you would appreciate this offer.

    Intern Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Gentex (Michigan) (Grand Rapids, MI) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Interviewed with 3 people - 1 HR person for about 15 minutes, and 2 engineers for an hour each. Interviews with engineers were fairly informal; we talked as we toured their facility. The second interviewer didn't seem to like me, as he was sure I would leave Gentex after my internship to work in Detroit for one of the Big 3 even though that was not the case. They want their interns to become full-time employees there after graduating.

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Gentex (Michigan) (Zeeland, MI) in December 2015.

    Interview

    It was very brief. They send most people to a temp agency first - myself included. They don't care if you have school etc or not. Everyone who doesn't come through a college they were probably approached at - goes to an entry level spot in some type of assembly, making wires or circuit boards or coating glass etc.
