I have been working at Gentex Optics full-time (More than 3 years)
Good salary; company is owned by Fortune 500 company Essilor which is very profitable; good working environment and work/home balance; flexible schedule (for salaried employees); commitment to factory automation to keep jobs in high labor cost MA. Good opportunities for professional development through 3rd party training courses and tuition reimbursement program.
Difficulties getting cooperation between departments; corporate resistance to change; typical challenges with high volume 24/7 manufacturing environment. Health care plan is not the best, but that seems to be the way things are going in general.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Gentex Optics in May 2015.
First interview was by telephone and went very well. A follow up several weeks later was very positive, they said they were still very interested. After four weeks I found the position at a job house and the company did not have enough courtesy to notify me.
