A small company feel in a big corporation.
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The hours were flexible, and the interns worked on actual projects alongside with full-time employees. Each intern had a mentor to help them out. The HR department does a great job taking care of the interns, such as providing paid housing and intern events.


Downers

I didn't find out about my performance as an intern until the end of the summer, but I mentioned that to HR in my exit interview, and I think they'll work to change that.


Advice to Potential Interns

My advice would be to network as much as possible. Knowing Garmin recruiters from past events really helped me get the internship.

Got to take a real product from start to finish that was in use when i left.
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Very open environment. Everyone on my team and other teams were helpful and willing to take time to show and teach me new things. Very open environment they gave me a task and let me solve it the way i wanted. They gave me a real project not just intern work, I created a product from start to finish.


Downers

The housing provided was ok, had some issues with bugs and other things. (they did ask about and say they would try to fix this issue)
Pay was decent but recieved better paying offers from other companies.


Advice to Potential Interns

Don't be afraid to ask questions to your mentor or advisor. They are only there to help. They were more than willing to help me and it helps them get a better understanding of how much you know so they can better give you an assaignment you can finish in the short 3 months


Advice to Management

I think a little more pay for senior engineering students. I did get some other higher offers from other companies(yes this included housing also)
great hours.
there was a mishap with me not getting all my information on IT stuff at the beggining causing me to get locked out of the system 1 week from my start date.

My team was great and my superiors were very engaging. They really want us to do well. It was a lot of fun to meet new people and see what kind of work is out there for me.

I actually couldn't find any cons, other than sometimes my mentor was a little too busy, which is understandable.

Get to know people ASAP! You will have to work with them for three months!!


Advice to Management

All aspects were great. Perhaps improve training to make it less dry.
