    Senior Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Kimberly-Clark (Atlanta, GA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Applied through the K-C web site. Had a first interview with HR, which went fine; just more or less a resume review. 2nd interview was with the hiring manager, which was also relaxed and information. 3rd interview (also phone) was a bit more structured, but fairly typical.

    And that's where it ended. I never received any further feedback from K-C, whether HR or the hiring manager, despite direct followups. The only way I found out that I was no longer a candidate was by going back to the web site later to see.

    This is the second (and final) time that I will be applying at K-C. Their hiring cycle is very long, disorganized, and discourteous. I'm not angry about not getting the job, that happens. But at least show some common decency in the process, K-C!

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Kimberly-Clark (Roswell, GA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I had an initial phone interview, which was relatively casual and more a description of the job, a few questions about experiences on my resume, and whether I was interested. The second part was a full-day, in-person process where I met with my team leader, other analysts, past team leaders, and HR representative. They asked me a lot of STAR questions, and I had a 1-hour finance-related simulation question
