    Pros

    they give you better benefits if you're a dedicated worker.

    Cons

    Honestly, they're okay they are not all that because they hire and fire operators left to right and they discriminate against the elderly and make them leave home early and give them lesser hours.

    Advice to Management

    they should find new management and stop allowing operators and supervisors get fired for unneccessary reasons .

    I have been working at Kimberly-Clark full-time

    Pros

    Most of the people that work here are very talented and friendly.
    Benefits are basic.
    Work/life balance is good.

    Cons

    HR is inept and a moral destroyer. Example: you are not allowed to personalize your office area even with a family photo. They actively look to create problems and drama including firing and interrogating people on hear say.
    If you have a question regarding your 401k, Health Insurance, etc., the office HR can't/won't help you. They will give you a list of numbers to reach the outsourced HR companies and get back to you in a few business days and sometimes, not at all. They are the most useless department in the plant and company.
    Certain groups are catered to.
    Pay is lower than industry standard.

    Advice to Management

    Quit forcing overly PC crap down everyone's throat and bending over backwards for a group of people that have threatened a lawsuit for damages done by the same people. There are no majority racist employees here. Everyone creates their own circumstance. Employees are resenting the company for it and looking for work elsewhere. You have and will lose your best employees. It is easy for great employees to find work at friendlier companies. Grow a backbone!

    I worked at the Roswell location. The grounds and facilities are gorgeous and up to date. There is a very friendly and professional vibe. I would love the work with Kimberly Clark again.

    The internship did not lead directly into a job, as I hoped it would. This was not, however, guaranteed in any way.
