Company Overview: Garmin is a worldwide provider of navigation
products. We are committed to making superior products for
automotive, aviation, marine, outdoor and sports that are an
essential part of our customers' lives. Our "vertical integration"
business model keeps these functions in-house, giving us more
control over timelines, quality and service. Garmin has more than
9,200 associates in 35 offices worldwide.
Internship Overview: Garmin's Internships offer a real life work
experience that they will want to write home (or text) about! We
have interns in many of our departments including
Software/Hardware/Mechanical Engineering (the majority), IT,
Operations, Legal, etc. Most of our internships are located at our
World Headquarters in Olathe, Kansas (Kansas City area) and last a
minimum of 10 weeks in the summer. We also have a few offsite
locations (see our website). Our Engineering Interns work side by
side with full time engineers (including a personal mentor)
assisting with development, testing, designing and/or developing
software/hardware features that will be used in Garmin products.
Our other interns work closely with experts in their field as well.
Interns will walk away from the internship with real industry
experience which will help them in their future career path (we
hope it's with us). Outside of a challenging and rewarding work
experience, our interns make lifelong friends with coworkers and
other interns from across the country and get to know each other
outside of work with various social events throughout the summer.
We have a casual, friendly, work hard, play hard culture (no dress
code). We not only pay our interns a competitive wage, we also
provide them coordinated and paid housing! The interns show up and
move right in! We evaluate every graduating intern for full time
employment with the intent to make offers to those who are a fit
(after all, our interns make the best full time employees)! We
offer paid time off (unused time gets paid out at the end of the
summer), paid holidays, free onsite gym and work out classes,
discounted gym memberships, discounts on Garmin products for
friends and family, invitations to company events, paid entry fees
for select races, testing new products before released, discounts
at local and national companies, and many more.
