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.

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

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

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.

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.

Fantastic people and projects, cumbersome paperwork!


Uppers

We don't do stupid grunt work. We actually contribute and full-timers make an effort to develop us.


Downers

It's not always clear what Kimberly Clark requires to do something (paperwork), so there's a lot of time wasted trying to dig that up. Lists are good.


Advice to Potential Interns

The people are great. The projects deal with unexciting material, but they move fast and are challenging.


Advice to Management

Pay interns/co-ops more. Work to streamline process of getting things done. Paperwork is not always clear and it is not clear what paperwork needs to be done.


Would You Recommend

Yes
