4.8 of 5 stars

Very interesting experience and you feel like you are not just an intern but a full time employee of Garmin
Kansas City, KS | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Challenging and rewarding


Downers

Inability to pick/choose from a couple of projects, instead of being assigned one that may or may not be that interesting.


Advice to Potential Interns

It is a great place to have an internship at and to work for! Great people, awesome HR team, and challenging work. Definitely the top internship in the Kansas Area. I would recommend it to everyone!


Sample Interview Questions

Analyze this piece of code and find if there are any errors and how would you fix them.


Advice to Management

May be a possibility for the intern to pick from a couple of projects, or to ask them what projects they like working on, before the internship starts. That way the intern could possibly choose the one that is of the most interesting subject to them. Of course, they will have to sign some sort of a non-disclosure statement beforehand, but it will make their internship even more fun.

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.

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

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.

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.
