    I worked at Garmin full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    They hire anyone technical minded

    Cons

    Low pay, whole department is treated as 'they guys at the bottom' - especially by HR, management is made of people that survived in Garmin for many years so it's negative selection in it's finest (good people left long ago)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    quit and hire real management

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Garmin.

    Interview Details

    Applied through a career fair. I was contacted by a recruiter and completed two initial interviews that were mostly behavioral. (Times you worked on a team? A situation where you didn't know how to solve a problem... how did you solve it? etc) Then I completed a technical interview. The technical interview involved them asking about my experiences, general questions about programming, then going to the board for a few problems.
