    I worked at Garmin full-time

    Pros

    Intern program makes students socialize and created a college like environment, Garmin is also getting an additional facility that seems will help innovate some of the office spaces

    Cons

    Overall, there was some confusion with what my role on the team was, but was made clear by end of internship

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Garmin.

    Interview

    Applied online, was contacted about two weeks later to set up a phone interview. Thought the interview went well, was told I would be contacted to set up another interview in the following weeks. Never heard back and tried following up multiple times. Very unprofessional.
