    I have been working at Gentex (Michigan) full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are good. Most people are very easy to get along with and happy to work there.

    Cons

    Largely depends on where you work, but it can be tough to deal with under educated TMS's who don't care.
    Underwhelming pay. Would much rather my bonus be a built in portion of my salary.

    Advice to Management

    Higher pay = better talent.

    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.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

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