    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Garmin.

    Interview

    Interviewed on campus with a company recruiter. The interview was an hour long mix of behavioral and technical questions. Technical questions mainly about simple definitions about concepts like object oriented programming, memory management, and operating systems. One coding question was asked about array manipulation and the optimization of said manipulation.

    Consisted of a technical and behavioral interview. The technical part consisted of a program on a sheet of paper. You had to identify what the program was doing, where the bug is at, and how to optimize the program.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Garmin (Kansas City, MO (US)) in November-2015.

    Interview

    I held an hour phone interview about general behavioral questions. Very simple questions. The tech interview was roughly 45 minutes. It was held over skype and asked general questions such as what static is, what is the different between a public, protected, and private function, etc. They may ask different situations you've had to code HTML, Java, or CSS, etc. There were two developers on Skype asking me questions. They were extremely friendly and if I needed help they gave examples.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Garmin (Chandler, AZ (US)).

    Interview

    Pretty standard Software Engineer Intern interview experience. I had my technical interview well before my HR phone screen which I thought was very odd. During the technical interview the two guys conducting my interview left the room.. which I thought was also very odd. This defeats the purpose of seeing how I solve the problem and only looks at my solution.

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Garmin.

    Interview

    Had phone interview with recruiter with typical HR questions about background, experience, etc. Was told that they would get back to me the following week to setup a call with the development team, and that the entire process would be about 3 weeks. Never heard back, and the recruiter never responded to a followup email asking about the status of things.

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Garmin.

    Interview

    Started with 2 hr interviews. Mentioned a game that I wrote in my spare time, they loved it. They had me come to KC KS for an interview. The coding question was elementary. Theoretical questions touched subject matter no higher than Data Structure questions, such as stack vs. queue, etc.

    Interview Questions

    • What is the difference between a stack and a queue?   1 Answer
    • What is a situation that might result in a stack overflow?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Their initial offer was much more than I anticipated, I accepted it with no further regard.

    Interview

    Phone screen by HR, technical phone interview by person in group. On site interview with any interested groups, pretty standard. Very smart people, and know what they are looking for in a candidate, which is refreshing. More interested in your background and abilities than ability to solve (memorize solutions to) mind melting puzzles.

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly background information from the resume. Each round had 2 technical questions.   Answer Question
