    REACH Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at International Paper.

    Interview Details

    Applied through university career fair. Interview was a typical personality based interview. Interviewers were nice but also seemed to be observing everything you say to find a flaw. I probably wasn't as experience in the field the were looking for as other candidates which is why I believe to have not received a second round invitation because the interview was pretty straightforward.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at International Paper.

    Interview Details

    The initial greeting and dinner process was great. The staff was pleasant, warm, and great to get along with, however, the interview itself seemed quite the opposite. Even from the start, it seemed as if it was a bother to them to be there interviewing. The inconsistencies that they showed from what I and the other candidates had been exposed to were a major turn-off.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at International Paper in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview was conducted with two IT managers. The best way to summarize the interview that it was questions about yourself, work experience, and education background. They were also more interested in if you do any extracurricular activities and outside projects. After the two IT managers asked their questions, they asked if I had any questions regarding to the company and the intern position.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at International Paper in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Went to an information session and gave them my resume and next day met with them at the career fair and was given an interview. It seems like they took in many interviews and the biggest thing they required was a hard 2.8 GPA. They were all very nice and the group helping people included 2 previous students from the university that were there to help you do your best. The interview was on campus and was with a HR person as well as a seasoned engineer.

    Met at the career fair on campus, was invited to an interview the next day. Questions weren't too difficult, but they made me feel stupid for things on my resume. Most questions seemed to be accusatory.

    Very professional but also very personable and nice people. Interview felt much more like a friendly conversation than most that I have experienced.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at International Paper.

    Interview Details

    The process was very long and thorough. It took over two months and with four interviews ( two phone screens, and two face - to - face interviews on site, including VP. I can appreciate the process but there was no follow up unless it was prompted. The final outcome was disappointing after over two and half months but understandable.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at International Paper in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Quick easy background phone interview, panel interview with 3 people, then a second panel interview with 4 people. It was very formal and although I had prepared myself well, it proved aggressive. Just a lot of very intense questions. Probably 30 questions in all...the two panel interviews lasted about an hour and a half each.

    Interview Questions
    • A lot of the "tell me about a time" questions...weaknesses, how you communicate with others, management styles, disagreements with coworkers, issues with authority. Just a lot of very intense questions.   Answer Question
