    Global Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Roswell, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Kimberly-Clark (Roswell, GA) in September 2018.


    To be honest, I was blown away. The process was fast and everyone I met knew exactly what I had talked about in my previous interviews. The recruiter who contacted me was very insightful and had prepared herself to ask all the proper questions. The hiring manager was straight to the point and still very nice to talk to, she made me want to work for her immediately. I was also interviewed by a global VP who was so candid and yet goal-oriented, it was possibly one of the best interviews I ever had with a VP level executive.

    NOTE: I was not interviewed in Rosswell, GA, the process was 100% through the phone but apparently I can't put "virtual" in the location box down there.
