    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Garmin (Olathe, KS) in May 2018.

    Interview

    Was contacted first by an interview scheduler who set me up for a 1 hour phone call with a technical recruiter based in Kansas. Asked about my background and seemed to go well. She passed my info on to the local team but they decided I wasn't the right fit.
