The intern expo seems a little unnecessary.

Intern Creates New GUI Features, Has Fun Doing So

4.7 of 5 stars

Other (US) | 2016 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Being able to create something used in the read world that was functional and beautiful. Getting more than enough help to do so.

Downers

My team was too introverted for my personal taste.

Advice to Potential Interns

If you want to make a hundred fun new friends in a few weeks, work on toys all summer and have the nicest manager/team/mentor ever, intern at Garmin!

Sample Interview Questions

How do you count how many bits are on in an integer?

Kansas City, KS | 2016 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The work in general, i.e. what I worked on and the department I was with (Fitness)

Downers

Meeting people outside my team was practically nonexistent (maybe due to company size)

Advice to Potential Interns

I would highly recommend with one caveat. If you are a CS or CE major doing a software engineering internship, make sure you get with any department except aviation. Aviation software engineers pretty much only did test code (from the people I talked to) which isn't the best experience if you are past your freshmen/maybe sophomore year. All the other departments seemed to have much more meaningful work for their interns, even though there were significantly fewer of us.

Advice to Management

Compensation seems good for the midwest, but low for the tech industry. I know they have really good benefits that kind of offset that, but unless there is a decent pay raise each year, I am not sure that it would be enough to comfortably support more than 1 person.

I got to learn many useful skills as well as work with very helpful and friendly people.

Downers

I would have liked to have had the chance to work at the Garmin Headquarters in Olathe, KS for a few weeks to get experience in a more formal business work environment.

Advice to Potential Interns

Never be afraid to ask for help if you find yourself unable to make progress.

Advice to Management

For interns who work at the KU offices, a week or two during the internship could be set aside for the interns to come work at the Olathe, KS Headquarters.

I had a wonderful time.

Treated as a full-time employee with same opportunities. Real-life work that mattered.

Environment was not my taste. Workplace communication was difficult

Advice to Potential Interns

Don't stress during the interview process. The technical interview is tough but as long as you handle yourself well and talk out your thought process they will appreciate you. I loved the internship but am not sure if I would continue for full employment
