    "Not bad but not the best"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Team Member Support in Zeeland, MI
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Gentex (Michigan) for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Management development classes facilities events (company picnic) Chances to help improve ones area

    Cons

    Pay Communication Lack of Movement Don’t put money into fixing equipment Do 3rd shift support

    Advice to Management

    Support your third shift teams. You employ hundreds of people on third but can’t be bothered with giving them the proper maintenance or HR support. Also keep up to date with the machines that make your products. Several of the machines I worked with were falling apart but no one seemed to care. Another tip would be to pay the staff more. Bonuses aren’t enough: they simply equal out the pay discrepancy and since... they haven’t been great for awhile even that’s not the case anymore.
