Operations Research Lead Interview

Operations Research Lead
Atlanta, GA

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed 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 Question – Was there any moments that you disagree with your boss?   Answer Question

IT Analyst Interview

IT Analyst
Atlanta, GA

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Georgia-Pacific Corporation in August 2013.

Interview Details – Went to the career site and completed an application. After about 1 week I received an email from a recruiter to schedule a phone interview. After speaking with the recruiter she said she would pass my resume and interview results over to the hiring manager. After about 3 weeks I received a call from an interview coordinator requesting that I give her a list of dates I would be available for 4hr interview with 4 different people.After that I got an email confirming that date and sent interview format and KOCH information. Dont bother reading the book, just knowing a few of the concepts will help. Each interviewer had a different objective judging you fit with the team, decision making, past job knowledge and personality. It was an exhausting interview and you must have PLENTY to talk about for 4 hrs. In the end, everyone was nice but very conservative which probably played a part in me not getting contacted. I followed up with the recruiter for a few weeks but after they reposted the position, I figured that ship had sailed.

Interview Question – What do you know about KOCH enterprises?   Answer Question
