Security Analyst (Former Employee) – Neenah, WI – August 17, 2018
I worked as a contractor. Typical large company, not much else to say. I believe the mission was to assess a lot of applications that were largely for Marketing, many sites, multiple countries. It was challenging work as well as rewarding, however I was not there very long and had no intention of relocation.
Shipping and Receiving Clerk (Former Employee) – McDonough, GA – August 16, 2018
THE PLACE IS immense. Cold, cavernous. Silent, despite thousands of people quietly picking items, or standing along the conveyors quietly packing or box-taping, nothing noisy but the occasional whir of a passing forklift.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Roswell, GA – August 15, 2018
I began as an Administrative Assistant and I was very happy working at Kimberly-Clark.
I supported multiple departments, managers and I performed various tasks while I was there. Depending on the group I supported, my duties included scheduling meetings, travel arrangements, expenses, event planning, on-boarding for new hires, and logistics for my team members.
The hardest part of any job is when I have to look for something to do. I like to be kept busy but at a pace where I am not overwhelmed.
I enjoyed the people I worked with, they made the day-to-day experience rewarding and enjoyable.
Millwright (Former Employee) – Everett, WA – August 9, 2018
i enjoyed working here and would have continued if they didn't shut the plant down displacing over a thousand workers. during poor economic times making it difficult to find jobs with equal pay benifits.
Packing Operator (Former Employee) – South Carolina – August 6, 2018
unfair job when you working with a three party, they don't treat empolyees the same as their employees. The empolyees was different. working throught a staffing company is different between working permanently.
Forklift Driver (Current Employee) – North Ogden, UT – August 3, 2018
The hours were rotating shifts. 3 12 hour shifts one week days the next week night. And then back to days. It was just hard with a new baby. But a great place to work overall if you don't mind those hours
Machine Operator/Utility Driver (Former Employee) – Fullerton, CA – July 24, 2018
a lot of hours and weekend work. I worked there for 8 years and think the company is a good place to make a living. Unfortunately with the good money and lots of OT comes little free time. If you NEED weekend time for other obligations this is not the place for many of the positions there.
CLINICAL SPECIALIST (Former Employee) – United States – July 23, 2018
Work/Life balance was a struggle as with many sales type jobs. As a nurse you are required to work normal hours (and some outside normal hours too). Then you were required to be on-call for the Triage Line 4-5 times a month. This meant you worked your normal 8-10 that day then took calls through the night from 9p-6am the next morning. No time back was allowed and no stipend was given for extra time worked. Between triage and my regular job we did the math and I would have made more money working fast food.
The biggest issue was working as a Nurse and being "delegated" tasks from a Territory Manager (who didn't even need a degree). It's definitely PRO sales and nursing seems like an after-thought. I loved my manager but then he was promoted and we went through a series of managers after that. It is definitely a "Good 'Ol Boys Club" mentality. If you are a male then you will do well and get promoted even with several managers having HR issues. If you aren't male then use it as a stepping stone. At least you will know ahead of time what to expect. KC spun off this department to a new company, Halyard Health in 2012.
Work from home, company car, good benefits
Low salary, working "under" a non-degree sales person, lots of management turn-over and misfires, phone triage duties without pay or time back, working 50-60 hours per week
Great people, community involvement, networking opportunities and benefits
Customer Forecast Analyst (Former Employee) – Neenah, WI – July 20, 2018
Overall I really enjoyed working at Kimberly-Clark. Most of the people I worked with were great! I typically worked 9 hour days, but there were certain days of the monthly cycle in my last department where it wasn't unusual to work 10-12. I learned a wealth of knowledge about Supply Chain (customer service, distribution, transportation, planning, forecasting) and Customer development. My favorite part of the roles was working with the customer teams out in the field. The hardest part of the job was changing and sometimes unclear objectives and team vision. It was nice having perks like working from home one day a week and Friday afternoons off in the summer. There are many diversity groups like Women's Interactive Network, African American Employee Network, etc that were great for learning and networking. The benefits were pretty good, although they have been declining over the years. There are plenty of roles for career advancement, if you know what you want to do and are willing to work hard to move up.
What I didn't like was that management changed frequently and many of the new managers did not do a good job. Having inconsistency from managers in a role can cause stress, confusion, and can slow down team members careers. Some team leaders did not provide good constructive feedback throughout the year, which resulted in some team members receiving less than stellar performance ratings at the end of a year, as a surprise. They also do calibration for reviews, so even if you are doing a great job, if all of your peers are doing a better job, then you get dingedmore... and it also affects your raise. It was also frustrating that it could be very difficult to move into new departments unless you have friends in management in that area.less
People, benefits, flexible work arrangements, summer hours, community involvement, networking
Ineffective managers, performance management rating system/callibration, moving to new departments if you don't have friends in management there
