During my internship, my projects were all projects that full-time employees would've had to complete if I were not there. This was great because it meant I was working on tasks that I would if I were a full-time employee here and meant that I could get a feel for what it would be like working for KC permanently. Another great opportunity with KC is that co-ops usually get to travel to another KC location to see the differences of working in different places. Kimberly-Clark was also great at getting a variety of different projects for me to work on... meaning I wasn't working on the same thing day after day. One of the best (and most unexpected) aspects was the overall feel of the company as well. Even though KC is a larger company, they still retain the "small business" attitude in regards to treatment of employees (and employees treatment of each other), treatment of customers/consumers and quality/improvement of their products.

Downers

There is some lull time when it comes to getting information or getting approval from different people for a project. This can delay the project more often than not. There are also some "company required" meetings/training that don't necessarily apply to interns but are still required for interns to attend. Overall the cons of the internship were minor though in comparison to all the benefits from the experience.

Advice to Potential Interns

If your interested in a great networking opportunity Kimberly-Clark is the place. Everyone (from upper level management) is approachable and willing to speak with you. If you express interest in another department or location (across the world) it's very easy to speak with someone who can get you opportunities in those locations as well. Again, the variety of projects available exposes you to a lot of different potential future roles and helps you figure out what to do after college.

Advice to Management

Provided housing or housing/rent compensation would be very helpful and would definitely affect new/returning intern retention.

Would You Recommend

Yes

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

Full time responsibilities and real world experience

Little Rock, AR | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

I greatly appreciated the operators taking initiative to help me out with various tasks.

Downers

I did not like that there was no quiet place or time to get to know the operators. However, this is a condition that engineers must learn to work with.

Advice to Potential Interns

An Engineering Co-Op term at Kimberly-Clark will get you real experience as an engineer in the manufacturing industry. That means you will work on projects, both short-term and long-term that improve the efficiency and quality of the existing processes. These processes not only involve the machinery but also the procedures which people carry out.

For Process Engineers: Know Microsoft Ecxel

For Mechanical Engineers: Know SolidWorks

Advice to Management

Keep improving. - I am confident that this term was better than the last and the next term will be better than this one.

Perhaps establish a company directory that is organized by plant and departments.

Would You Recommend

Yes

The amount of leeway and responsibility we were given. I was not only expected to come up with ideas or recommendations, but also to execute the recommendations before the end of my term.

Downers

Long drive from downtown ATL (40 minutes).

Advice to Potential Interns

Don't expect to be led by the hand; take initiative and you'll do great.
