Advice to Potential Interns

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

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

Great opportunity to learn and grow as an engineer with a company that cares about your success.
Paris | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The internship was very hands on. We are given our own projects to work on and are expected to be "change leaders." While we are expected to do our own work, there are always knowledgable people that are willing to help you with your projects or answer questions about the process.


Downers

There isn't much that I do not like about my internship. They do a very good job of making interns feel welcome and challenged.


Advice to Potential Interns

There is a lot of movement in this company. Most engineers that are working in Paris, TX have also worked at different plants across the nation. Your co-op location might not be where you were hoping to live, but it could open many doors.

Learning technical skills while also learning about the company and business in general.


Downers

The lack of information going into the internship about the details of the job, the department, and where the office is even located.


Advice to Potential Interns

Take every opportunity given to you, never say no. The more you experience, the more you will learn, and the better off you will be in the future.

An internship with Kimberly-Clark provides valuable work experience, a great work environment and future opportunities.
Other (US) | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

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.
