Traveling to location and half of my projects being boring.


Advice to Potential Interns

Be confident and stay focused. Finish your given work then ask for more. Your bosses will love you.


Advice to Management

Don't underestimate your co-ops. Most of them can handle much more work and responsibility than you give them. And this is coming from a 5-term co-op.

The group project and the fact that sales offices were in suburbs, not the city that was mentioned in offer letter.

A Challenging Experience to Learn and Grow
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

Great opportunity to learn and grow as an engineer with a company that cares about your success.
Paris | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The internship was very hands on. We are given our own projects to work on and are expected to be "change leaders." While we are expected to do our own work, there are always knowledgable people that are willing to help you with your projects or answer questions about the process.


Downers

There isn't much that I do not like about my internship. They do a very good job of making interns feel welcome and challenged.


Advice to Potential Interns

There is a lot of movement in this company. Most engineers that are working in Paris, TX have also worked at different plants across the nation. Your co-op location might not be where you were hoping to live, but it could open many doors.

Yes

A real-world experience with great pay and networking with brilliant people
Other (US) | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

-Flexible hours during Summer (and in general, from what I hear)

-Very intelligent people that offer their knowlege from past experiences

-Personally, my assignmnents/objectives related well to the engineering industry; real-world experience


Downers

-Traveling (some may find this a positive; I would prefer not to)


Advice to Potential Interns

As an intership, this offers a great experience to start a young career anywhere (based on my engineering co-op). Take everything seriously and professional, all the way from the initial interview to your final presentation. It appears the students who exceed are the ones who put every effort into their project possible. The ones who are average or below average do not take their projects seriously or professionally.


Advice to Management

-Communicate better with the co-ops between accepted offer after interview through the first week of work. At one point a few weeks before I started work here, I wasn't even sure if I still had a job (even though I accepted an offer)

-Certain aspects of the position that I accepted were not true, some positive some negative; I believe some of this was due to personnel changes/shifts within the company. From the time I accepted the job offer until I started work, I had (3) manager changes. I think this also contributed to the miscommunication prior to starting work.

The team that I got to work with.

Advice to Potential Interns

Strong company with a good work environment. Hours may be long occasionally but worth it in the long run

Litterally a brighter work environment. The standard office dull colors and low lighting goes against productivity.
