Great colleagues but some toxic managers
Fast paced, stressful, good colleagues . No space between phone calls. Length of toilet breaks monitored. Some managers could be negative. Great discounts on products. Great dental benefits.

Great place to work if you are fitness minded.
When I started working for Garmin I really enjoyed it but feel there was not enough Training and more support should have been given.Just think there should be more guidance in the job, but this needs to be done from the start. Training was short and not long enough.

Good, bad and ugly..
Work pattern is unchangeable. Expected performance hard to achieve which cause stressful environment. If you think quality over quantity you're put straight in a few months so quality is secondary. Some people are good and approachable. Lots are miserable and won't even answer to 'hi'. Benefits are not bad but hard to workout. Products are great and employee discount generous.Other point is management, lack of cooperation, no empathy, expect you sell your soul to the company..if you let them they will walk all over you. Reasonable requests are met with hipocrotical, idiotic and generally noncooperative answers which cause annoyance and loosing will to work for them. It seems like some are trying really hard to discourage working ethics and change your opinion on Garmin as a whole. At first it looks awesome almost glamorous to work for garmin. This approach rapidly change due to few in control..pity.

Don't work here
I only took the job as I was desperate and had heard good things about the company, oh how wrong I was! It's the worst job I've ever hadYou are watched constantly during your shift, you're not allowed to talk to anyone or you get moved to another part of the warehouse. Even when it was quiet you were made to just walk around and look busy. After every break someone of management is looking at you and checking there watch even when all the clocks show a different time. There was normally about 2 team leaders and one so called supervisor who would stand around and watch you. You stop for 2 minutes and they moan. The management in the warehouse is terrible, the supervisor seemed like he gave up years ago and 2 of the 3 team leaders were useless.They had no idea on how to run a team and would most of time just be heard shouting at people. No motivation what so ever and on a couple of occasions I was actually discouraged from helping another team member out. Everything they do in the warehouse goes completely against there motto they have plastered across the wall. You will only get on there if you face fits immediately or you have family working there to help you as certain people could do nothing and get away with it.I spoke to a few people from rework and even they say how bad it is and to get out of the warehouse as fast as you can, in fact most departments say that about the warehouse. And from what I've heard all other departments are really lovely to work for! So in summary work anywhere else other then the warehouse. You have been warned

Fast pace and stressful
For the week three weeks that I work there it was just me learning about their system and how to use it. I had a hard time keeping up and found it quite stressful as I couldn't keep up with other
