    Operations & Quality Director Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Kimberly-Clark.

    Interview Details

    I have interviewed with this company three times now. Each time I had an initial phone screen, then a few weeks later this was followed by a three and a half hour behavioral interview. The interview itself is tough for the unprepared, you are interviewed separately by x# of individuals who will be working with you. The most frustrating aspect is getting any kind of feedback from those who interviewed you.

    KC follows Lean manufacturing principles. I find their interview process anything but. I understand wanting to find the best individual for the job, but this is a bit extreme.

    In the past, I have gotten rejection letters promptly within a week of the on site interview. The last position I interviewed for was over a month ago and I am still waiting to hear anything from KC. Very frustrating.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Kimberly-Clark.

    Interview Details

    They came to our college career fair. The questions were behavioral. "tell me a time when you were in a difficult situation and how did you over come it. I heard back within the next couple of weeks with an offer. Before I even accepted my future manager called me to see if I had any questions about the job or the location and anything he could do to help. It was a very easy process and we had calls to make sure I had an apartment and everything ready for my start date.

    Make sure to research the company before hand to have an understanding of the culture and what they are looking for.

    The first round interview was simply behavioral. The recruiter just wanted to get to know me better, asked about who I was, things on my resume. Second and final round interview will be at the company headquarters and will be technical.

    Interview Details

    A recruiter invited me to an interview after career fair. Did not require a cover letter, just a resume. Interview was fine (lots of behavioral questions) until they started asking questions meant for the full-time job interviews. Those caught me off guard since I had only taken one Finance class at the time. Also, know as many products/brands they have as possible, they will ask you to name them.

    Interview Questions
    • If you were on Shark Tank, what three finance-related questions would you ask the company. Be specific and explain why for each.   Answer Question

    Stupid HR questions they ask a lot of stuff that may not pertain to you but want you to answer the question anyways, the questions are from left field and have nothing to do with the actual job

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Kimberly-Clark.

    Interview Details

    I found the job on my Universities job site. I applied and they got back to me in about two days. I went in for the interview and they asked very standard behavioral questions. It was a super behavioral interview and there was absolutely no dialogue. Just be yourself and you should be fine. This was honestly my first interview ever and I was just nervous.

    Interview Details

    Telephone Screening and Face to Face Competency Interviews, 1 with head of hr and one with 2 other bps - fairly straightforward but took a long time to get any feedback and the feedback itself was lacking any detail

    Interview Details

    Seems like there is heavy favorability to internal hires versus the external people they bring in. The process is very very slow. They act like they are interested in you but end up picking internal candidates - seems more like a formality vs actual hiring processes.
