More interaction between departments would increase worker cohesion and morale. More intern meetups would do similarly at a more critical period in their career.

My manager allowed me space to do my work in my own way. My projects were interesting and challenging.

Downers

At times it was difficult to get the feedback necessary from tooling engineers

Advice to Potential Interns

In my role at Garmin, I did not need to use in-depth analysis techniques as taught in engineering school. Creativity, practical knowledge and intuition are much more important. (this was my experience, I believe interns in the past have done substantial FEA work)

Advice to Management

I liked how i was not overwhelmed with boring (though possibly useful) training the first few days/weeks of my internship. for some people this may work well but for me, this would have been torture.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Great Internship at Garmin

4.7 of 5 stars

Kansas City, KS | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The environment was very friendly, and the work was along the lines of what I want to do after college.

Downers

The fact that it was a maintenance job which probably isn't the most exciting job in the world.

Advice to Potential Interns

Be prepared to work hard, but be well rewarded for it.

Would You Recommend

Software development less intimidating day by day

4.5 of 5 stars

Other (US) | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The full-time employees I worked with in my team were all helpful and made my experience enjoyable. The office environment in general was very inviting.

Downers

Probably how the building was not marked well, as I got lost many times.

Advice to Potential Interns

For software engineers, learn all you can in classes teaching C, and learn how to use Linux-based software, like Git, in your free time.

Sample Interview Questions

What developer tools have you had experience with?

What is your strongest programming language?

What kinds of team projects have you worked on?

Advice to Management

Perhaps make sure each team is the proper size for the current project they are working on, but try not to add too many new team members too late in development.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Garmin Internship program rocks!

Great pay

Real software engineering work

Great experience

huge employee discount on products

Downers

Lack of instruction

Advice to Potential Interns

Commit to learning a lot the first few weeks to figure out how to become a productive member here.

Sample Interview Questions

Know code. Garmin programs mostly in C or assembly language. During my interview I was given a short "quiz" on the C language. Relatively simple things such as: determining the output of simple functions, identifying errors in code, and optimizing code.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Real work. Friendly atmosphere. An amazing experience.

Uppers

Treated like a real employee. Great immersive experience, lots of events to encourage social interaction with other interns.

Downers

In my position I didn't always have something to do on a daily basis. I'm sure this is not a problem for other areas so much. I was a well qualified candidate for the position I interviewed for and got.

Advice to Potential Interns

Be yourself, the people here support that very much and was one of my favorite aspects of working there.

Would You Recommend

Yes

An Incredible Experience

4.7 of 5 stars

Phoenix, AZ | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The best aspect of the internship was working on

Downers

The thing that I liked "least" was working on the project in its current phase. To elaborate, our product was in its certification phase, which means there is very little development work to be done, and lots of busy work spent testing the system. However, this is a very important part of any product, and provides an incredible internship experience, it just isn't always the most riveting thing to be done.

Advice to Potential Interns

As with any internship, make sure that you engage in the culture that exists. Get to know the employees that you are working with. As silly as it sounds, going out to lunch with people on the team can really help you assimilate into the culture and get others used to having you there.

Sample Interview Questions

Evaluate this piece of recursive code.

What kind of embedded or systems projects have you worked on?

Advice to Management

"Corporate" training was loosely defined and not well documented on what we were supposed to complete and by when.
