A Promising Company with many opportunities for an Engineering Co-op
R&E Engineering Co-op (Former Employee) – Roswell, GA – April 17, 2017
Co-oping at K-C was a great opportunity to explore the many business units and get your feet wet with projects that carried large value and just needed quick turnaround.
The atmosphere was very friendly in the plant and corporate level. It was always mindful of safety, of the customer, and of the employee. It's telling that employees generally stayed there at least 30 years.
Excellent company values, and many opportunities for horizontal career change and long employment
Formulation Chemist (Former Employee) – Neenah, WI – April 5, 2017
Great place to work, and definitely great as an initial experience. The full time employees were occasionally hard to get in touch with, but when you did get their attention they were extremely helpful.
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Mobile al – March 31, 2017
Very energetic work environment I learned alot with this company. The supervisors were always helpful and training course provided me with all the knowledge and understanding that I would need to perform my day to day job duties
Lead Quality Specialist (Former Employee) – Everett, WA – March 30, 2017
This Company was a very safe place to work. The compensation was top notch. I always tried to keep this Mill as profitable as I could and strove to think up innovative ways to increase productivity while minimizing waste. This company valued quality that met or exceeded the Costumers expectations. I often would arrive for my shift and have to shut down and hold product when I found it to be outside the accepts standard. I was never talked to about this and was allowed the necessary time to return to producing Product that met our S.N.I.P. standard.
Safe, Clean, Lots of time off.
Not all of my ideas were considered. Hours were sometimes brutal.
This was my first job coming out of college. I worked at a paper mill as a cost analyst. This job took me from Wisconsin to North Carolina. I look back fondly on my days at the mill. My desire to get back to Wisconsin led me to leave.
Great Culture. Progression in marketing is challenging
Marketing Director (Former Employee) – Neenah, WI – March 22, 2017
KC lacks career planning and clarity on progression for the marketing function. They recruit a lot of great talent from outside, but later questions external experience when being evaluated for a promotion. Also, higher level positions are often filled with KC employees from oversees, creating a bottleneck of talent. Lots of great marketing talent very few leadership opportunities.
Maintenance Electrician/Mechanic (Former Employee) – Corinth, MS – March 21, 2017
On call for electrical and mechanical issues for packaging equipment. Worked 6 to 7 days a week. Assisted in grade changes on machines to run different products. Worked different shifts. I was one of 12 maintenance people. The only woman.
Laboratory R&D Technician (Current Employee) – Roswell, GA – March 17, 2017
The company is productive and the managers and people I've worked with have been good. The only limitation is the fact that I've been working as a contractor from YOH corporation, not as a proper employee of the company. Aside from that, things have been good and positive. I have been able to perform a variety of tasks and have been able to communicate my concerns and issues to the KC management.
Employee benefits, break rooms, lunch room etc.
I've been working through a contractor, so I've experienced limited pay and benefits
Process Engineer (Current Employee) – Chester, PA – March 13, 2017
At Kimberly Clark you're giving 1000 things to do, then you have 2000 meetings to get no where working on them. The company loves having their meetings, which is great if you don't like to work very much. The advancement prospects are particularly bleak. Don't come here expecting to make a career out of it, unless you're okay with relocating halfway across the country every 12 months. The company is too cheap to even provide coffee.
Great always had a good time and treated everybody well.
Maintenance (Former Employee) – Hendersonville, NC – March 7, 2017
Kimberly Clark was one of the best places iv ever worked, no complaints, they always made sure we were taken care of and even gave us breaks when we were in extreme heat also always had free food for the workers on certain days, and were very grateful when you did a good job and showed there appreciation for everybodys hard work.
Healthcare, free food on some days. Plenty of over time if wanted
