Innovation, Experience and Perks at Garmin
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN

The amount of pay was great. Also, they provided us with housing that was close to work.

The company is very innovative and is very interesting to work for. The perks they provide us as interns was my favorite part.

When selecting a job offer it is important to look at other aspects of the position beyond the salary.

Experience writing code for Garmin's real time application server
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Getting to work on a wide variety of projects within the team.


Downers

How long it took me to get fully comfortable with the processes and learn a new programming language.


Advice to Potential Interns

Really great people and atmosphere to work with. I and other interns I know got to work on a wide range of very interesting and important projects within our departments.


Advice to Management

It would have been nice to be placed with a team using a programming language I already knew well. At the same time, internships are about exposure and experience to a variety of subjects so it was still good in that regard.

2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

One of the coolest projects I could have imagined. Great experience in the industry that I can see in my future. Great people who care about what they do.


Downers

There really wasn't anything I disliked.


Advice to Potential Interns

Work hard and ask a ton of questions. Your mentor and supervisor are there to help and they want to. It'll make the experience go by my smoother.

Great Internship, Educational and Fun
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

One of my favorite parts was living with the other interns--we lived with others who were doing the same thing, had similar interests, and there was a good number of us that made it easy to find people to hang out with. Coming home to play some frisbee with co-interns was a great part. In addition, the atmosphere at Garmin was another great part.


Downers

If I had to choose, one of the parts I liked least about the internship was not knowing much about the departments at Garmin other than the one in which you were placed. However, the HR team did a great job at the end with presentations and tours of all the other opportunities at Garmin so that we could have information for the future.


Advice to Potential Interns

If you are looking for an internship that keeps all your doors open while providing an educational AND fun experience, come here.

Garmin: A prestigious internship with real-world experience, fun people and the chance to make a difference!
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Real projects, acceptance as a true associate, strong mentoring, endless opportunities, paid well, great products, great perks (even as an intern!), prestigious company, excellent location, fun work, fun people, continuous learning, strong focus on associate needs and happiness, flexible and understanding management, free coffee, cafeteria, testing products, discounts on products, and I truly felt like family!


Downers

Work areas/cubicles a little bland and boring, not very stimulating or exciting.


Advice to Potential Interns

Always give your best and don't be afraid to ask for help or say "I don't know"


Advice to Management

Make the physical atmosphere a little more fun and stress-relieving. A work environment that stimulates the mind could help associates feel refreshed, creative, and excited.

Only the Best!
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The mentorship, the pay, the benefits, and (most of all) the new friendships I made that I continue to keep!


Downers

The quality of housing wasn't the best, but the distance to work and the amount I spent for it (free!!!) is hard to argue with!


Advice to Potential Interns

You should absolutely pursue an internship at Garmin! You will learn something valuable everyday, and you will have a blast doing so!
