typical workplace, everyone got along well enough
Helmet Assembly (Former Employee) –  Carbondale, PAOctober 17, 2018
It's a good job with great benefits. Supervisor was a good guy and the work was easy. i can't complain it was work. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to listen to music on your phone while you worked.

Management good in some areas, extremely poor in others.
OPERATOR (Current Employee) –  Zeeland, MIOctober 2, 2018
Most floor jobs are fast paced, and management is hit or miss as far as quality goes. numerous occasions of mismanagement of HR related issues. Its a good job to pay the bills, but i would not say a good career unless you are a engineer or looking to advance in group leadership.

Fast pace and fun if you enjoy your coworkers
Final Assembly (Former Employee) –  Zeeland, MISeptember 21, 2018
You will usually be on the same line every day unless you become a floater. You will learn every station of the line and rotate every 2 hours or whatever is specified. You have a goal to hit so it was entertaining to try to keep your time in the green to avoid having to work mandatory weekends.
Pros
Bonuses were great.
Cons
Short breaks

Lots of opportunity for leadership drive change...Vision is on the narrow minded side. Legacy manufacturing culture that would benefit from forward thinking and digital transformation.

Clean environment to work in with air condition
Research Associate (Former Employee) –  Zeeland, MISeptember 14, 2018
Great place to work if you have college aspiration or electrical background. Without the required background they will not allow you to transfer for advancement. Most jobs there require you be in pursuit of a college degree.

Did not provide "training" other than watching videos on the computer and being assigned an experienced worker of 20+ years that "did not find it amusing to train me to do her job"
Pros
Comfortable Environment
Cons
Large work environment

Great place to work at
Production Team Member (Former Employee) –  Zeeland, MIAugust 29, 2018
I love the benefits that Gentex has and the bonuses. I have worked for great supervisors. I feel like they care about their employees. I have worked and proven myself to the supervisor so I have less supervision over me. I enjoy that I work in a clean room. The team members that I have worked with are all great.

Production Engineer (Current Employee) –  Zeeland, MIAugust 27, 2018
Some departments can be difficult to advance from. Management is very youth oriented, if you have experience you may be intimidating to your manager.
