    talked to them at the Career fair. Interviewed the next day, pretty easy interview. 3 of them at one time. 30 mins. all behavioral questions. got an offer within 2 hours of interviewing. interviews were very friendly. really made me want to work for the company. process is really fast. too fast. i know its because it was for a 6-month co-op but they should recruit earlier so that people have time to rearrange their lives.

    Supply Chain Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Georgia-Pacific Corporation in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    30 Minute Behavioral Interview. Interviewed by two people in office. Everyone was very pleasant and real. They asked basic behavioral interview questions based on their 10 guiding principles. Having situations prepared before hand is very helpful. They gave a change for the interviewee to ask questions. I would take them up on that. The MBM culture is more important to them than supply chain skills.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Georgia-Pacific Corporation.

    The hiring process took about 2 weeks. I apply through my school's career website. I received an email a couple of days later asking me what the best time for me was to schedule a phone interview. After the phone interview, they schedule an on site interview for the following week. It was a panel interview with two people. The interviewers very extremely friendly and professional. The interview last for about an hour or so. Afterwards, they told me that they would continue interviewing several more candidates, and make a choice by the end of the week. I received a phone call on Friday notifying me that I had gotten the job.

    Everyone seemed very positive on the general culture, and pre-reading of the MBM philosophy seemed helpful.

    Supply Chain Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Georgia-Pacific Corporation in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    Straight forward panel interview. Thankfully, I had a good idea of what the interviewers were looking for in a candidate and I was able to impressed them. Shortly after the interview I was offered the position. GP's interview consists mainly of situational questions. They do like a GPA of at least a 3.0, but that is not the only determining factor. And the reason for all of those situational questions is so that they can weed out those that do not align well with their MBM Guiding Principles. If you align with the principles and have proven experience implementing such initiatives in the past, then you are a prime candidate to be hired at GP.

    Interview Questions
    • Can you tell us a time when you had to use persuasion to get an co-work to comply with your wishes and what was the outcome?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Honestly, GP got back to me with a job offer more quickly than any other employer, so I took GP's offer after a weekend of deliberation. GP is a great company. I did have other offers, but I am happy with the choice I made.
