    Environmental Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific Corporation (Atlanta, GA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    First had a phone interview where mostly behavioral questions were asked; lasted about 30 minutes. Was contacted to interview on-site in Atlanta. Flight, hotel, transportation, and food were all covered by the company. Had four, one hour long, one-on-one interviews on-site. One interviewer tended to focus on questions about my resume and elaborated on things I've done. The rest of the interviewers (and GP in general) focused on behavioral-based questions, so make sure to have experiences and stories you can pull from. But I would also strongly recommend, if they don't specifically ask (about half of my interviewers didn't), to make sure you find a way to incorporate into the interview(s) where you want to go, what you want to do, and why you want and are a good fit for the position, since you'll mostly be asked and will be talking about things from your past.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a peer/coworker who didn't pull their own weight When you had to persuade someone A stressful situation you faced and how you dealt with it When you set a goal When you failed When you made a split-second decision When you showed leadership An instance where you offered a creative solution/made the existing methods better When you went above and beyond When you saw something unethical Your weakness When someone took credit for your work Describe a success   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific Corporation (Atlanta, GA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Received an initial phone screening about 1 1/2 week after applying online. Four days after that I got a call for a face to face interview. Interviewed with four different people and asked a lot of behavioral based questions. The company is really big on Market Based Management so I suggest you read up on that. Overall the interview process was not bad..... intense but not bad.... I have not heard anything yet but was told that I would here something within a week of my interview... keeping my fingers crossed!

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time when you set a goal and achieved it.... Tell me about a time when you had to make an executive decision without your boss. What was the outcome.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific Corporation (Atlanta, GA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    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.

    Reasons for Declining

    They only gave me a week and a half (originally only a week asked for an extension) to decide. Wasn't enough time to figure out a subleaser and adjust my academic plan so i could accept even though i really wanted to. great housing and relocation. Planning to apply for full-time

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific Corporation (Atlanta, GA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    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?
