The Garmin Guide to Location and Robustness
Phoenix, AZ | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I really enjoyed working in a cohesive team environment and participating in meetings to see what people were working on. I enjoyed the group lunches, programming club, and other social and collaborative events that went on in the summer. I feel that I was well-compensated for my work and that I completed my tasks successfully in a timely manner.


Downers

I did not like that I did not receive a lot of feedback from my mentor in the beginning of the internship. I think a little more guidance in the beginning could have helped me overcome initial roadblocks faster.


Advice to Potential Interns

Garmin is a wonderful place to work. My internship was a language immersion program for Objective-C. I was able to apply the knowledge I learned and obtained through various projects towards a real-world application. Being able to work on a feature that will one day make it to the App Store was an incredible experience for me.


Sample Interview Questions

Why do you want to work at Garmin?

Explain the difference between inheritance and polymorphism (technical question).

Describe a challenge you had in a team project and how you overcame it.


Advice to Management

I think they could provide more training for new employees, as well as more social events (especially for interns) to help new employees get to know other employees better.

Wonderful experience: Learn and build connections while having fun and being generously compensated!

Uppers

The amount I learned was staggering; I really feel that I gained a lot of hands-on, "real-world" training that I wouldn't have been able to get in the classroom.


Downers

I sometimes felt that I got too much help!


Advice to Potential Interns

Strive to do your best--even on simple tasks--and stay focused, I feel that doing so really helped me stand out to my manager and team members.

High School Interns Do Exist
Kansas City, KS | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I really liked how the management understood that school comes first and encouraged that. Also, my mentor and supervisor were always giving me new things to read and look at if I wanted to learn more about a certain topic.


Downers

I did not like the age difference, but that was unavoidable.


Advice to Potential Interns

Garmin is the type of company that makes you want a job there after graduation. The people are nice and helpful towards your development.

Challenging and rewarding
Kansas City, KS | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Projects I worked on and what I learned.


Downers

Location, not the west coast.


Advice to Potential Interns

It is a very relaxed environment where you are treated like a professional until proven otherwise. Help is readily available if you need it but no one will be there to check on you constantly if you do not seek it for yourself. Ask questions, learn all you can, and enjoy the projects you get.
