Rewarding work

Great people and culture


Downers

I liked pretty much everything. Nothing to complain about.


Advice to Potential Interns

Take the job. Time spent at Garmin is time well spent.

Don't put everyone in Aviation. It is hard to retain interns when all they do is write test code.

Awesome career experience and such a great environment!
Kansas City, KS | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I really loved that I was considered a member of the team and was treated as that. I was given challenging projects and guidance on how to accomplish them if needed. I was also given lots of availability to go above and beyond as I took more initiative.


Downers

I would have like to have had more of an overview of the other departments.


Advice to Potential Interns

I think that this company is very unique in their culture. They are willing to allow you to pursue new avenues and markets that will benefit the company. There is a lot of project ownership in the company and that produces a great product.

it was a great learning experience with wonderful people in a really fun environment.
Kansas City, KS | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Paid housing, fun activities, very hand-on, a very structured work environment


Downers

It would be nice to see more diversity.


Advice to Potential Interns

You have to be able to adapt to a fast paced environment.


Advice to Management

It is clear that the company views every department’s specialty as contributing to the organization's overall success. I would challenge Garmin to reinforce this premise even further in the future by initiating more of a balance across departments addressing the issue disparity of compensation among interns.

Yes

Work hard, play hard
Other (US) | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

All interns were assigned tasks on our first day instead of having to wait until someone found something we could do.


Downers

Some of the tools developed internally by the company were a bit difficult to understand since there was no guide to help learn how to use it.


Advice to Potential Interns

The company cares a great deal about its employees. The facilities have been updated to help relieve stress throughout the day and the hours are very flexible.


Sample Interview Questions

Create a state machine for a microwave.


Advice to Management

The training and introductions given on the first day can be a bit more in-depth. The orientation went so quickly and I did not really know anything about the company as a whole before I started working.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Perfect of Work and Fun
Kansas City, KS | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Garmin has the most kind and friendly people I've ever worked with along with a relaxed atmosphere. I was working along side full-time employees who were working on the same project as me.


Downers

I didn't find out what I was working on until about one week before the start date.


Advice to Potential Interns

Garmin's outstanding trait compared to other companies is the people and work atmosphere. The people are very friendly and welcoming, and working atmosphere is casual.

Incredibly technical, challenging internship with great team and coworkers
Kansas City, KS | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Getting to work on something very challenging and fast paced, working with great coworkers, having a boss that is incredibly helpful, and getting paid well to do it.


Downers

Working remotely made some aspects slightly more difficult, but that's a very small con - as they gave me the opportunity to work remotely to begin with.


Advice to Potential Interns

Just come work here. The company, culture, and environment are all wonderful - with the pay to boot.
