    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Garmin (Kansas City, KS) in February 2017.

    Interview

    For the most part it was just about my history and then a brief technical interview. Two interviewers and myself, one software engineer and one not. Much more focus on past projects than on anything else. Technical questions were typical CSC-150 type questions you see in any technical interview. Overall, pleasant interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Garmin (Olathe, KS) in January 2017.

    Interview

    First was a short phone interview asking some basic questions about my background, resume items, and personality questions. Had a Skype interview (since I'm not located near their headquarters) a few weeks later with a few team leaders within Garmin. They asked more specifically about resume items, basic programming questions, and gave me a code exercise. For the exercise, they gave me a function (in C) and asked me to walk through the code and determine its purpose and a few potential flaws with the code. I was expecting an in-person interview as well, but to my surprise they called with an offer a few days after the Skype interview.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Garmin (Olathe, KS).

    Interview

    First Got the initial screening, they asked some simple background and behavioral question. Talked about why I left my previous offices. They then talked about how the process will go from there. After some time, I got mail that I would have technical skype interview with two of their Software engineers. On skype, though only one showed up, I was fine with it, easier. the technical interview was easy, basic technical questions. Since it had been a long time since I actually coded I couldn't answer some questions. But it was fine, the interviewer was a cool guy, smiled, made me feel comfortable and provided me the answers when I was wrong or missed something. All the question were derived from the CV I sent them. It was a good experience and interview. It was mostly my fault that I didn't get an offer

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Garmin (Lenexa, KS) in October 2016.

    Interview

    A recruiter reached out to me via email about a week or two after I applied. There was a phone interview with a recruiter, then we set up an on-site interview about a week later. I was told that they usually only do one on-site interview before deciding on a candidate.

    I felt the interview went very well, but I got a rejection letter several days later with a vague explanation that wasn't useful. I followed up with a thank you email requesting additional feedback, but heard nothing.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Garmin (Olathe, KS) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The process took 4 weeks, and you have to wait for quiet a long time to receive the response, I would definitely accept this offer if Garmin can process their work faster because as a job seeker you really want the offer come to you as quickly as possible, but the HR are nice and questions were easy. Basic knowledge and general questions. If you do your homework you should be able to answer.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Garmin (Olathe, KS) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online to an opening on company website. Received a phone call from HR about a week later, wanting to do a behavioral interview. Behavioral interview was over the phone, and contained several generic questions about my background and why I want to work for Garmin. At the end of the behavioral interview there were a few basic technical questions, mostly conceptual stuff. The following day, HR called me again to set up another phone interview, this time technical. The interview was with an Engineering team manager. He gave me a rundown of his background and what he does, then asked me about my projects, resume, education for a little while. Then he asked me a simple coding question and some follow-up questions about that. Finally, I was able to ask him some questions and that was that. The technical interview went well, I thought, and I expected to hear back for a third, in-person interview. I had gotten all the technical questions right and hadn't said anything too strange or out of place with the behavioral questions. However, I received an email a week or so later saying that I wouldn't get a third interview. No other explanation was given, which was pretty frustrating.
