    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Garmin in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Contacted a few weeks later by HR for initial screen. Scheduled for an on-site interview a few weeks after that. On-site interview was very short (2 hours total) compared to my previous experience interviewing at tech companies. Apparently they are expanding in NC and had lots of interviews stacked up.

    Interview Questions
    • Something about writing code to print the third-to-last item in a linked list. Really simple, CS101 type stuff in most cases, but you have to know pointers and data structures.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Offer was too low relative to my current pay/benefits, and they wouldn't negotiate more than a token amount.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Olathe, KS
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Garmin in November 2008.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by recruiters through LinkedIn, as they were coming to my area for a career fair. i met with a line manager and the HR recruiter. Questions were either non-technical or very light about my experience on the resume. i then was flown to Olathe for an onsite interview. about an hour with HR for situational/personality questions. Then i had a 2 hour interview with "team leads". i brought a code sample, as requested, and I reviewed it with them. I asked lots of questions and got a good insight into the workings of the company. I then got lunch at the nice cafeteria and then a tour of the facility by another Software Manager. I got an email a day later saying i was grand and an offer a few days later via email.

    Reasons for Declining

    Relocation to Kansas was not ideal and the the reduced salary of the offer made the decision easier. Cost of living adjustment for Kansas was not accurate, in my opinion.
