Good experience, culture, and work
Atlanta, GA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Opportunities to travel and general supportive K-C culture


Downers

There seems to be a lot of variability with quality of mentors. Some people get lucky with great mentors and teams while others do not. I also didn't love the work I was doing this summer.


Advice to Potential Interns

^ this question is phrased confusingly.



I would recommend that they work with K-C because it's a great company and they give you valuable work experience.


Advice to Management

There is a discrepancy with overtime - some interns get as much overtime as they want, while others need to work overtime but aren't allowed to take credit for it.


Would You Recommend

Yes

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

Advice to Potential Interns

4.7 of 5 stars

Kimberly-Clark offers students mentoring and technical skill development for accelerated career development
Other (US) | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


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.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Challenge That Rewards

Getting to go hands-on with a very complex process and actually work with a team to optimize the processes.


Downers

Having to wake up early


Advice to Potential Interns

Be prepared to get to work ASAP. There's a lot to learn and little time to learn ir, but the teams are great and help in any way possible.

Yes

4.6 of 5 stars

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.

A variety of projects and tasks to create a well rounded full time prospect
Other (US) | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The team that I got to work with.


Downers

nothing really


Advice to Potential Interns

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


Advice to Management

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

Great learning experience and opportunity for career development and growth
Chicago, IL | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Being on a customer team and being able to do actual work for the company.


Downers

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


Advice to Potential Interns

It is important to consider company culture. Culture at K-C can not be beat. It is a great place to work and everyone on the team is very helpful.

Yes
