The culture is great and relaxed, the pay is competitive, and they really take care of their co-ops and interns. I've done this summer internship twice and both my mentors have been very supportive. There are lots of co-op activities for anyone that wants to go out and get involved and have fun. Once you're in the co-op program, as long as you don't slack off, it seems pretty easy to get a job if you want it.

Downers

The only thing I didn't like about this term was that my project wasn't technically challenging in the ways I'm looking for. It was difficult and a little frustrating because what I was asked to study doesn't have reliable ways to quantitatively measure it because of how variable it is. But chemical engineering knowledge didn't help me. The only skills I used were basic problem solving skills, basic data analysis skills, and Microsoft Excel skills.

Advice to Potential Interns

If you're a chemical engineer, you might be able to use most of the stuff you spent years learning in school. I think electrical and mechanical engineers probably get a better experience that way. But if that doesn't bother you, then I highly recommend interning/working here. It's a stable company with lots of opportunities, competitive pay, and a great culture.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Opportunity to get experience doing actual engineering work in the field of Controls. Company has great CO-OP program.

Laid back, cheap apartment, manager and mentor were both helpful, pay was middle of the road but still a positive.

Downers

Lots of red tape to jump through to get anything done. The town is very small with very little to do outside of work.

Advice to Potential Interns

KC values strong working relationships. Knowing people will help you get work done faster.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Working with all of the people at Kimberly-Clark was the best part. Everyone here is so flexible and ready to help! They genuinely care about you as an employee, as a person, and as a student trying to gain experience.

Downers

Sometimes while planning things a long way out I would need to find work to do to occupy my time as I waited. These "filler" projects were interesting but did not contribute to my overall objectives.

Advice to Potential Interns

Don't focus on what you are doing as much as who you will be working with. The people are what make the job fun, not the work itself.

Would You Recommend

Yes

How Produtive and Efficient Can a process be while ensuring safety to be our first priority.

4.6 of 5 stars

Atlanta, GA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The people I worked with, the projects I was assigned, the responsibility I was given, the opportunity to travel with my team, and the effort of multiple people to invest in me during my time here.

Downers

Not being able to spend more time with the co-ops.

Advice to Potential Interns

Kimberly Clark values it's co-op program more than most companies I have seen. They invest in you as if you were a real employee and want to give you opportunities to succeed, but more importantly want to see you grow in character, leadership, and as a professional. You will have real projects with real responsibility but with the support of your mentor, manager, team, the co-op community, as well as several other random people within the company. It is an experience not to be missed.

Advice to Management

More visibility from people higher in the company.

Would You Recommend

Yes
