Spending a Summer Living and Working at Garmin


Uppers

There are many good aspects to having an internship at Garmin, such as the work ethic, the high standards, the potential amount to learn and so much more. Working at Garmin is very cool because they treat their interns as adults and hold them to most of the same standards they would hold a normal employee, minus some of the experience. Everyone I have talked to at Garmin is very friendly and always tries to help me learn as much as I can. Also, working at Garmin is more of a life style. There are tons of clubs to join that will help you network and stay fit. A wide variety of people work at Garmin with a wide variety of taste, so it is interesting to meet all the different people and learn about them.


Downers

Honestly, this was my first internship, so I really have nothing to compare it to. I did not dislike anything that is not, from what I have heard, the normal office behavior standards.


Advice to Potential Interns

Garmin employees like to have fun. If you are having fun you will be much more effective, so I suggest finding something that you like doing at Garmin and going after it. Being consistent with habits such as showing up on time if not early and being determined to do your best on all your work are always benefitial.

Downers

I cannot think of anything negative to say about my experience as an intern.


Advice to Potential Interns

Garmin provides a very accepting and friendly enviroment. Don't hesitate to ask questions, or seek out others for advice.

Work Hard, Play Harder


Uppers

Housing is provided (and only 5mins away), the interns house together which makes outings and bonding easier, you're treated like a full-time employee with equal perks and flexibility, its paid.


Downers

The provided housing isn't the best quality (but it's free, so....)


Advice to Potential Interns

Work your booty off in school! Garmin only takes the best. It is very much a "work hard, play hard" environment, and you need to reflect that.


Advice to Management

Create a consistent policy for overtime among interns.

Challenging, Learning, and Fun!


Uppers

My team was awesome to work with. We had regular disc golf outings and donut meetings. I worked on challenging problems alongside full-time engineers. There were a ton of fun intern events all around Kansas City.


Downers

The free housing wasn't great. But it was free!


Advice to Potential Interns

I would highly recommend it. There's a ton to do in KC (hackathons included!), and you'll learn a lot.


Advice to Management

Everything is pretty awesome. I'd just recommend they try to innovate and hire the tippy top tier of talent.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Engaging, fast-paced internship gives real-world experience


Uppers

One of the best things about this internship was knowing that my work will have a lasting impact on the development of the products. I felt as though the work I was given was something that any full-time engineer would be working on.


Downers

There were times when I was given tasks way above my head that ended up going to another full time associate.


Advice to Potential Interns

Be flexible; as an intern, you might find yourself working on a lot of different projects throughout the summer.


Would You Recommend

Yes

My Garmin Experience
