Would address the pay issue, 13.50 is no where near enough to deal with the customers, and the amount of work we did vs engineers that sat and looks at code all day

Being able to actually design a product and then being able to physically see the end result.

I spent a majority of my day on the computer which became monotonous and slow.

Expect to work, but realize that you may be stuck on a computer all day.

For interns, training in any area would have been nice. It would have provided opportunities to learn more.

Uppers

Having my own project.

Downers

Staring at a monitor for 8 hours a day

Advice to Potential Interns

I received dual screen monitors and my own desk in a two person office (which I had to myself for most of the summer). The people are fairly friendly. My work, albeit necessary, was slightly boring. I was well compensated and accumulated PTO. Overall, I would say my internship at Garmin was pretty good.

Would You Recommend

Seeing first hand all aspects of the how the supply chain interact together

Downers

Ran out of tasks for me to complete. I did not feel like I was being challenged or pushed.

Advice to Potential Interns

Only treat the engineers special, not all other interns. If you are an engineer you would probably love it here.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Remedial bug fixing and bottom of the barrel tasks

2.5 of 5 stars

Other (US) | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Being surrounded with highly intelligent people

Downers

The subject matter of my work. I was given busy work and tasks that nobody wanted to complete.

Advice to Potential Interns

Request to not be placed on PND

Advice to Management

More training. Its nearly impossible to master a codebase this large without some kind of training process. More strictly enforce coding standards so different pieces of code can be read and used by the same person.

Would You Recommend

No
