Candidate Bill of Rights

Gentex is committed to hiring the best talent and offering opportunities for development over time for our Employees.  The great number of annual hires dictates that we carefully select people to enter into the process and then provide an appropriate level of focused attention to move those Applicants through the process respectfully –respectful of the Candidate’s time, energy, and career ambitions. 

As the HR team, we must set realistic expectations and meet those expectations over time.  We are not perfect, but these four areas represent our intentions and the standards we should strive to meet on a daily basis.  Candidates should expect:

  • Transparency

    Gentex provides quality, actionable feedback to the degree that it is available. We inform the Candidate about their status in our process to the best degree possible. There are set expectations at each step in the hiring process.

  • Advocacy

    Gentex focuses on fit. If a Candidate does not seem to fit, it will not be a successful hire for us as an organization. We encourage the Candidates to put their best foot forward in the hiring process. As the HR team, we seek to first understand the Candidates’ needs. We provide answers to their questions about the available positions.

  • Communication

    Gentex promptly returns calls or emails within 48 hours. We are to be available by phone or by email to answer Candidates’ questions about anything related to the hiring process. We inform the Candidate if they are no longer being considered for a position, as well as if a position is no longer available.

  • Confidential

    Gentex does not reveal Candidates’ job search status with anyone outside of the organization. We protect their reputation in the job market as a whole. We do not call references of the Candidates’ current employer without their permission, nor do we share their personal information with any third party. Candidates’ electronic personal information is protected.
