Great company with some questionable managment
Line Operator (Current Employee) –  Holland, MIMay 5, 2018
Gentex in all as a company is great. I worked there for 8 years. Advancement in the comoany can be difficult without a degree of some sort or being a favorite of your leadership. They care greatly for their team members at an h.r. level and offer many rewards for crews exceeding expectations.
Pros
Paid breaks, great healthcare, free pop and coffee
Cons
difficult to move up, some issues with floor leadership

Hard to advance
Team Member Support (Current Employee) –  Zeeland, MIApril 24, 2018
Gentex runs like a club. Once you get in The Club with Management you are protected and will advance. If you have a background in automotive repair or electronics degree you will advance. If not, they will promote you so you are under paid for the team lead role, then you are stuck without the electronics degree. Management does not care about experience.
Pros
Co-workers
Cons
Advancement

Work with a team to build quality mirrors at a fast pace
Factory Line Worker (Current Employee) –  Zeeland, MIApril 4, 2018
Working with people that you like and dislike to make a common goal and to communicate as a team. If one person is doing poorly you all are doing poorly so it is best if you help one another out.
Pros
Free pop
Cons
Our management needs some work on how to communicate better

Gentex will care for you if you put in the work
Line Operator (Former Employee) –  Zeeland, MIApril 3, 2018
Good hours, with plenty of available over time opportunity. Competitive benefit package, and stock options. Management is hit or miss, usually good, but sometimes you get a young student with an Engineer background and no management skill.
Pros
Paid Lunch, good hours, good pay
Cons
Slight risk of poor management

Inspection and Quality Control Operator (Former Employee) –  Zeeland, MIApril 2, 2018
Poor management on my line, high school atmosphere with gossip and backstabbing, when brought to HR attention, they dismissed it saying they can't police people. No, but you can hire decent human beings and care about the atmosphere in your company.
Pros
bonuses, easy work
Cons
mindless, infantile atmosphere

Productive Team oriented place with friendly coworkers
Production Team Member (Former Employee) –  Zeeland, MIMarch 28, 2018
I had a vastly wonderful experience at Gentex. Most of the supervisors were understanding and friendly, the only issue was the lack of advancement opportunities or the likes. A typical day there was spent doing the task you were given through the day from inspecting parts to testing. To keep things from getting too complacent employees are shifted in tasks after each break, unless they prefer certain areas. I learned a lot of things about circuit boards and the likes regarding mirrors in my employments. I mostlly enjoyed how easy it was to get along with coworkers and some of the managers there. A lot of my close friends I met working at Gentex.
Pros
paid lunches and breaks. quarterly bonuses. clean environment.
Cons
few advancement opportunities. Some areas are far more difficult than others.

Gentex is a decent place to work
Preventative Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) –  Zeeland, MIMarch 27, 2018
Gentex is a decent place to work with good benefits. However, in spite of what they say, there are not very many opportunities to advance from an hourly production worker to a position higher.
Pros
Free Pop, decent benefits, bonuses
Cons
Not a good place to advance

This small company felt like a true family. The pride in the work of Gentex and how workers were treated allowed for this company to have highly motivated employees.

Fun and laid back, too much favoritism.

Fun place to work, mostly laid back, lots of benefits, bonuses and perks. Sometimes management is too strict and harsh. Unfair point sytem, and not followed by all GL's. Lots of favoritism. Very repetitive. Hours arent very steady--lots of short paychecks. Overall not bad.
Pros
Free soda, bonuses/benefits, pay.
Cons
Favoritism, earned vacation, unfair management.

Drama and pretentious management
Production Operator (Current Employee) –  Zeeland, MI 49464February 27, 2018
They say that the management is unpretentious... not true. Management will stick a knife in your back the first chance they get. Numerous times I've seen managers make operators cry right on the floor and belittle them. Management only looks out for themselves and does not care about the team. Don't be fooled by bonuses, you make less in pay so it doesn't matter. Managers have their heads so far up the plant managers a** that you can't approach them about anything. This place has really gone down hill.
Pros
