    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Georgia-Pacific Corporation.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my university at a career fair and had the interview the next day with two very young Georgia Pacific employees. One was a recently hired college recruiter (less than 6 months), and the other, a supply chain employee. The interview wasn't bad at all but they asked a couple ridiculous questions, one of which I remember.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Georgia-Pacific Corporation.

    Interview Details

    Met recruiter at my college's career fair, signed up for an interview for the following day. There were two people interviewing me, both very nice. It was your typical behavioral based interview, lasted around 30 minutes. I was told I would hear back the following day, and never did. I recommend researching the company and base some questions off the research you did.

    • Tell me about a time you worked hard at something and didn't receive the credit you think you deserved and how did it make you feel?   Answer Question

    Accounting Interview

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    This interview was for the accounting, internal audit, tax, and treasury internship at Georgia Pacific.

    I interviewed at my university. The interviewing process took 60 minutes. I had to go to 3 different rooms (each had 2 interviewers) for 20 minutes each. Every room kept asking my geographical preferences when it came to working. If you're open to moving to a different state, you are more likely to get the job.

    Individually the questions were not too hard, but I was asked about 10 questions total which got kind of repetitive.

    room 1:
    When did you think outside the box and use an unconventional approach to solve a problem?
    What one accomplishment are you most proud of?
    When is a time you had to rely on someone else's knowledge to get though a task?
    Name a time when one of your work colleagues didn't pull their own weight and what did you do?
    What area in your life could you improve on the most?

    room 2:
    When did you have to critique someones work and how did you do it?
    Name something specific from your previous internship that had a direct correlation with your coursework.
    (They drilled me on my job duties for this previous internship)

    room 3:
    When did you step up and become a leader / take on responsibility when you weren't asked?
    Name a time when you didn't receive enough credit for your work and how did you handle it?
    -----I don't remember the last question exactly but it was something like this:
    When did you provide a new solution to an old problem OR When did you come up with a system that changed how things were done in the past?

    (Did the interview yesterday, so ignore whether or not I got an offer)

    Interview Questions
    • Most difficult was room 2. Wanted to know every detail of my prior internship, and how it would prepare me for GP.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Georgia-Pacific Corporation in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Met them at the career fair. Great and nice people. Lucky to score an interview with them. The first interview for a college recruitment is on campus and it is a behavioral interview. They will ask you to tell about your past and in what situation you have demonstrate initiative, leadership and such. Not a hard interview they just wanted to get to know you and see if you could fit in their culture.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked a lot of HR questions based not engineering...so be on your toes and ready to answer them.   Answer Question

    Operations Research Lead Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Georgia-Pacific Corporation in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was initially contacted by an HR person for a quick 15 minutes phone interview. 1 week after the phone interview I was called for an on-site interview. During the on-site interview, I first had meetings with 4 directors/VPs, and had lunch with two other employees in the end.

    The on-site interview process was mostly behavioral interview rather than technical. The only technical question was a modeling of an Inventory problem. All questions are generally like:
    - What did you do in your last work, and what is the outcome in the end?
    - Was there any moments that you disagree with your boss? How did you resolve it?
    - How would you express your ideas to non-technical audience?
    - What do you do to keep up with new technology?

    Interview Details

    Initial Phone Screening a few weeks after applying online. Very friendly and relax tone...standard behavioral questions. It took several weeks to hear back about my second interview with the hiring manager. I had pretty much written off the position and then out of the blue I received a call.

    Senior Sourcing Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Georgia-Pacific Corporation in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    The overall experience was bad. I had to send multiple emails and calls after which the HR got back to me for every round.

    This was through a referral. The position was based in the Atlanta office. After I was referred, the HR emailed me that she wanted to interview me. I emailed her back with suitable times for a phone call. One week went by no reply. Two weeks. I followed up. Another week went by. I called the office landline, dialed by employee name, and she picked up the call. She said she was sorry and she had forgotten (how lame I thought, but I decided to forget that). An interview was set up for the next day. The interview went well. She asked a fair amount of questions which I answered quite well. She said she'll get back.

    After waiting for three weeks after this - I followed up through email and there was no reply. When I called a week later, she said the position had been filled and she about to tell me.

    She could have atleast been a little courteous and told me herself that the position had been filled. But that wasn't the case.

    I think there's something called as recruitment ethics, and it was lacking in this Georgia-Pacific recruiter.
