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.

Would You Recommend

Yes

The people I worked with were all so friendly, knowledgable, and willing to share their time and expertise with me. I got to work on real, impactful projects for KC. It wasn't your typical intern busy-work.

Downers

Paper products aren't the most interesting of consumer products. Even though my focus was on the manufacturing equipment, the fact that it all circled back to diapers or training pants made the work a bit less engaging.

Advice to Potential Interns

KC is a fantastic place to work period. It is an incredibly collaborative work environment where people not only care about improving the business but about improving the lives of every person who uses a Kimberly-Clark product. And no matter how high or low you are in the company, you know you are making significant contributions. Even as an intern people listened to my ideas and respected me as an engineer. KC also puts a lot of emphasis on helping its employees through the classes and seminars they offer and the huge emphasis they put on safety. There is also plenty of options to move around in the company whether it is to a different location, a different product line, or a totally different function of the business. You can stay within the company but still work on a huge variety of projects.

Advice to Management

An annual training for managers/mentors might be helpful. Often times its been a few years since a manager has had a co-op, or the management is simply not aware of recent changes to the co-op program, and it can be confusing for first-term co-ops when they hear conflicting messages from the HR staff and their managers.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Great opportunity to learn and grow as an engineer with a company that cares about your success.

Paris | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

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.

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

Advice to Potential Interns

Don't be afraid of asking too many questions; there are no such things.

Would You Recommend

Yes

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.

Would You Recommend

Yes
