    Interview

    The process was organized and proceded relatively smooth. The HR department is very helpful and will try to do what they can for you. As long as you are respectful and professional and do not have unreasonable expectations, the process is good.

    Interview Questions

    • There really wasn't anything unexpected. They pretty standard interview questions. A little technical and a little personality questions.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They work with you if your expectation is reasonable. They want you to be happy with your pay and will accept requests within reason.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Garmin.

    Interview

    Had an On-Campus Interview, then they had me come out to their headquarters. Had two interviews, both were technical, having to do with C. Got a call a couple days later from HR, they had some more interview questions. Then they asked if I've had other interviews or offers, what my salary requirements are, and then said they are offering me an internship.

    Negotiation

    They asked if I had salary requirements, I said what the average is for interns. I then accepted what they offered.

    Software Engineer Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Garmin.

    Interview

    I spoke with a recruiter at my campus career fair. They called me later that night to schedule an interview for the day after. It was a bit short notice and I wasn't really sure what to expect. I thought the interview would be very technical but they only asked me questions about my resume and simple behavioral questions. I got an offer 3 days after the interview. In all it was a very quick experience and not at all what I expected it to be.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Garmin.

    Interview

    Great company, they take care of their people. Morale is overall high... unless you're at the call center. Worst spot in call center is Automotive. More work than other teams and not for more pay. MINIMAL advancement opportunity. Call center is notoriously a black hole. Advancement to HQ typically unlikely.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation.

    Interview

    Initially contacted by recruiter, exchanged multiple emails, had 2 phone interviews that seemed to be checking to see if I was indeed a human. After that all contact was cut off and I could not get a hold of my HR contact.

    Design Engineer - Entry Level Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Garmin.

    Interview

    I attended a Garmin event at my university. It was very informal (sponsored bbq) so I chatted with one of the design engineers there wearing shorts and a t-shirt, handed him my resume and thought I'd hear from them in a few weeks when the career fair came around. Wrong. They called me a few hours later for a next-day interview on my university's campus.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked very few behavior questions, but they asked me to take a technical test... I had to solve an op-amp and a simple circuit problem. Wouldn't have been difficult, and it really wasn't, but I couldn't remember how to do it (my circuits' courses were two years ago). My advice: study your basic circuits.   Answer Question
