    I have been working at Garmin as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Garmin's work environment is second to none. Casual dress code and associates really love their jobs. The people are very friendly and easy to work with.

    Cons

    Lack of structure and organization. Garmin seems to not know where they want to go with the company. They are always playing catch up. (Ex. GoPro vs Virb or FitBit vs VivoFit)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be more time training for the job. Being thrown into the fire can be a good experience but also very frustrating at times.

    Replenishment Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Garmin.

    Interview Details

    Let me first say that getting hired on at Garmin happens by complete luck. Their application/interview process is horrible, rude and unprofessional.

    I originally applied for other positions within the company but was rejected in all cases. Eventually i applied as a replenishment associate because I had 10+ years experience in all fields they were interested in. The interview process consisted of a phone interview where behavioral questions are the norm. If you pass this screening you get an onsite interview that typically involves meeting with the HR recruiter. If the recruiter likes you then you'll meet with the hiring manager.

    If you don't meet or exceed all of their expected AND desired qualifications don't even bother applying. You'll get an informal generic rejection letter via email a few days after applying. Even if they fly you out for an interview....if they go in a different direction you'll get the same bland generic auto generated rejection email from their HR department. No explanation, no nothing. In my opinion this is horribly unprofessional.
