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.
