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.

True to Life Process Engineering Co-op, Well worth the experience


Uppers

Working on projects that were high priority for the machines' success, ownership of my projects, schedule flexibility, willingness of coworkers to teach and work with me, strong engineering mentorship relations


Downers

I became frustrated with certain individual's refusal to follow through, but that is common to every work place. I didn't have many "cons."


Advice to Potential Interns

Safety is king, you are expected to be safe and will be kept as safe as possible in the work place. There are both union and nonunion mills, if that is a concern to you. Kimberly-Clark is a fair employer, and the opportunity to move upward in management is there if you are ambitious.
