Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Kimberly-Clark in October 2016.

Interview

It was an on-campus interview. The recruiter was super nice. The interview was more like a conversation. The interviewer talked about his role in the company and Kimberly-Clark as a company. Then, he asked if I had any questions. He went on to ask what I thought were problems the CEO of Kimberly-Clark would have to worry about in this business. Finally, there were three questions in which you had to answer using the STAR Method. In other words, know how to answer using the STAR method. The interview finished discussing the position and next steps in greater detail.

    Interview

    It was 4 one-hour interviews at their Neenah offices. Pretty standard behavioral interview questions. They are looking for certain qualities that will fit their organization and culture. Nothing that stood out. Be sure to understand how to answer these questions utilizing the STAR method.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Kimberly-Clark (Neenah, WI) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Submitted resume through campus recruiting site followed by an on campus interview a week later and an invitation to interview in Neenah.

    Overall, everyone was very friendly and excited to help me along throughout the interview process. All the employees seemed very passionate about the company and excited to be there, which left me with a great impression of the company. The first day we were taken on a tour followed by dinner with people in the current position and a brief expose of a few of the different opportunities Kimberly Clark had to offer. The next day, was a marathon of 3 hour long 1:1 interviews with a simple case study.

    Application

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

    Interview

    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

    No negotiation, but that was fine with me because of the good starting salary and upward potential after a couple years.
