Amazing Software Engineering opportunity.

Working on real projects that will eventually make it out to the world. Working with awesome team mates, who genuinely care about my contributions and ideas. Working for a company that really makes a difference in peoples' lives.

Only that it was an internship, and not my current job.

Actual development assignments, some of which were self-led instead of being closely guided, the work was very well compensated and laid back

Downers

I could have used more opportunities to leave my desk. The gym was pretty sparse.

Advice to Potential Interns

Employees are very well compensated, the benefits are fantastic, the work is meaningful, and you are not expected to work overtime.

Design, Simulate, and Test: the complete design engineering experience

Kansas City, KS | 2015 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

the people and work environment, the project and work I got to do, the office space

Downers

I wish I could have stayed longer.

Advice to Potential Interns

Garmin is a company that makes sure you get to do all aspects of hardward design. Don't come here expecting things to be easy; you will be asked to design and test your finished product.

Advice to Management

Offering better pay would help entice more people to stay, but otherwise I have no suggestions.

Sample Interview Questions

I was given a 10 question electrical concept test. I was asked about basic electronic devices and how they function.

Intern Improves Software Architecture of Old Code Base to Include New Functionality

4.8 of 5 stars

Kansas City, KS | 2015 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

One of the best aspects of this internship is the amount of training and help given. Another of the best aspects of this internship is the perks of the job. Garmin really cares about their interns so they organize events for them and go out of their way to make sure that every intern enjoys their experience interning at Garmin.

Downers

The thing that I like the least about this internship is the assumptions that some of the full-timers make. Although Garmin helps interns a lot and gives them lots of training. It can be very awkward when your mentor thinks you know more about a subject than you do.

Advice to Potential Interns

The best thing that you can do is be teachable. If you come in and are ready to learn, they will help you out even if it takes you a while to get a concept. Another thing is, don't ever say you can't do something. Say that you will try to figure out how to do that, even though you don't know how to do that thing currently.

Advice to Management

I would suggest creating a mentoring program for interns who want to learn about a different side of a project or product than what they are working on during their internship.

Sample Interview Questions

One of the questions was to determine how long the equator is.

Another thing they did in my interview is provide me with some code and tell me to find the things wrong with it.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Kansas City, KS | 2015 | VERIFIED INTERN

I loved the work environment. Everyone was kind and supportive. I made excellent connections with a broad array of people during my stay.

Downers

There is really nothing about the company that I didn't enjoy

Advice to Potential Interns

Always ask questions! Don't be afraid of being the dumbest person in the room, chances are you already are. Those around you have years more experience than you.
