    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Kimberly-Clark in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Spoke with them at my school's career fair and received an on-campus interview invitation a short while later. A few days before the interview was an information session with catered food, where the two people from KC were very friendly and informative. The initial interview was fairly laid back and entirely behavioral based. About a week after this, I was invited to Neenah, WI for an on-site interview. KC took care of all the travel and hotel arrangements. Almost immediately upon arriving in Wisconsin, I boarded a bus and took a tour of the surrounding area. Pretty spread out, but not terrible. After finishing this tour, we arrived at the Neenah Conference Center for dinner and more information about the company and what it offered. After this we were taken to the hotel for the night. The next day we woke up early and had breakfast at the hotel, then went to a nearby manufacturing facility to take a tour and see how the products were made and the mill ran. Finally, we were taken to KC's main building for interviews. There were 3 hour long behavioral interviews and one case study, which was actually pretty fun. The behavioral interviews were pretty arduous, since they were basically back to back to back and it was sometimes difficult to come up with new answers to similar questions. I told them my preference was Roswell, Georgia instead of Neenah and they worked very hard to accommodate this when I got my offer. I accepted the offer for Roswell. The people the whole way through this interview process seemed to genuinely care about what you were saying and what your future plans were, which is why I accepted the offer to work here.

    Interview Questions
    • Examining a case study to determine whether or not a project should continue to be pursued, changed, or cancelled based on reading emails from made up employees.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation, but that was fine with me because of the good starting salary and upward potential after a couple years.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Kimberly-Clark.

    Interview Details

    Met with recruiters at my university's career fair. Was then invited for the first round on-campus interview. The interview was about 30 minutes long and was all behavioral questions. About a week later heard back and was invited for second/final round at the Roswell office. This interview consisted of four 1 hour interviews. Mostly behavioral questions with one "inbox simulation" which consisted of reading through multiple e-mails as if it was my first day on the job and preparing for a meeting with my boss. Had to understand financial concepts such as NPV.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Kimberly-Clark in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I learned of the company and this opportunity through university recruiting and a career fair. I dropped my resume with them after stopping by their booth at the career fair and chatting with a young employee. I was then invited a few days later via email for an on-campus interview. There was a mixer the night before the interview with young employees a year removed from college and some upper level management. This is a laid back environment in which they just want to see if you can be social and keep a conversation going.

    The first interview was on-campus and lasted 30 minutes. This mainly consists of standard behavioral interview questions. If you have any internship or professional experience, they prefer to see you relate to those experiences in your answers. I was then selected a week later via email inviting me to interview for the second and final round on-site in Roswell, Ga.

    The final round consists of four consecutive interviews with different members of various divisions within KC. There is a break after your third interview, and this is when you will take a campus tour and eat lunch with some of the young employees. Within the four interviews, three are back to back with final one occurring after lunch. Three interviews are behavioral and there is one generic basic case study in which you read through many emails and pick out relevant information regarding a particular project and make a final recommendation.

    Interview Questions
    • How would you explain ROI to a non-finance person?

      Tell me a time when you set a goal and failed at something. What actions did you take to ensure that you would not fail in the same way again?
