    Production Support Engineer (PSE) Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Gentex (Michigan) (Zeeland, MI) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I met with the company the day before career fair and I had never heard of or knew anything about them. I applied online then spoke with them at career fair and they emailed me a few days later to schedule an interview. They flew me down to their headquarters in Zeeland where I had three interviews in a day.
    The first was 15 minutes the HR manager, just general questions to get to know my background and family info.
    2nd was an hour long with a production manager, more in depth questions mainly getting to know me personally and how I got to where I am, my work history etc. He also gave me a quick tour of the plant and ran through what I'd be responsible for on a day to day basis.
    Final interview was an hour with another manager who asked tougher questions, however he was more-so judging how I responded to the questions than my responses themselves because he seldom took notes.

    There were no behavioral type or STAR questions making this an easy and comfortable interview process.

    They're the first company that wanted to know my high school GPA and ACT score which I thought was a little strange.

    They ask quite a few questions about your family, who they are and what they do and your relationship with them. Which gives off the impression that they're a family oriented company and are sensitive to your personal needs which is a good thing.

    It took about 1 month before they gave me a verbal offer, which I had 2 weeks to make a decision. After I accepted it took another month for it to be finalized.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed 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 weeks. I interviewed 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

    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.
