My Garmin Experience
Kansas City, KS | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Work Hard, Play Harder
Kansas City, KS | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Housing is provided (and only 5mins away), the interns house together which makes outings and bonding easier, you're treated like a full-time employee with equal perks and flexibility, its paid.


Downers

The provided housing isn't the best quality (but it's free, so....)


Advice to Potential Interns

Work your booty off in school! Garmin only takes the best. It is very much a "work hard, play hard" environment, and you need to reflect that.


Advice to Management

Create a consistent policy for overtime among interns.

Garmin Internship: The best way to spend your summer
Kansas City, KS | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

There are too many to name. My favorite part was being treated like a full time employee, that mindset allowed me to learn and grow in the field that I'm studying and gave me a fantastic entrance into the real world.


Downers

There really isn't a least favorite part of the internship, however, I'm not one to wake up early. (But I mean it is the real world)


Advice to Potential Interns

Treat the summer like one long interview, because that's exactly what it is. The internship can open so many doors in the future.


Advice to Management

I'm always worried I'm doing something wrong, and even though I'm always told that I'm doing well, I still like feedback on what I could be doing better. I know I'm not perfect, so I need to know what exactly I should improve on.

Networking with my fellow employees. Everyone is very approachable. Everyone is very willing to take time out of their busy schedules to assist me when I have questions. Free donuts on Friday. The products that I got to work on are part of my dream career. Everyone at the company is very active and it's great to be around as an athlete.

The science fair like presentations that interns were asked to give.
