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.

Some of the other co-ops/interns were very immature and unprofessional.

Give a housing stipen to interns and co-ops or even buy an apartment for them since they always have so many.
