Kimberly-Clark offers students mentoring and technical skill development for accelerated career development


Uppers

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.

A Challenging Experience to Learn and Grow


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

A real-world experience with great pay and networking with brilliant people


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.

Exciting, Challenging, and Rewarding


Uppers

The best aspects of my internship was that I was able to network with so many people in the company and touch so many facets of business from customers, marketing research, packaging, strategy, channel teams, etc..


Downers

The internship is fast paced and you get meaty projects. Sometimes the projects felt too big to get accomplished in 12 weeks.


Advice to Potential Interns

My advice to interns about this potential employer is that if you want to see/work in small town America for a big CPG firm that will give you a ton of opportunity and experience then KC is for you. If you need the big city life then this is not the place for you.


Advice to Management

The only advice I have to management is to define the scope of your projects so that they are not so big that the work is overwhelming.


Would You Recommend

Yes
