Project Engineer Interview (Positive Experience)
I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Georgia-Pacific Corporation in March 2014.
Interview Details – An on campus interview resulting in a phone screen followed by an onsite interview process with the entire team. A very pleasant interview experience. The team was extremely professional and interview questions were focused on Market Based Management. Questions were very detail oriented from the resume and the team is thorough in their assessment.
Interview Question – Talk about an experience when disagreed with an immediate superior on an issue and how you handled it moving forward? Answer Question
IT Analyst Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
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
Marketing Director Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Georgia-Pacific Corporation in December 2013.
Interview Details – I was very disappointed with the unprofessional behavior displayed both HR and the hiring manager. The Hiring Manager blew off my first scheduled phone interview, then contacted me late to cancel the 2nd. Couldn't reach HR to find out a time for the 3rd reschedule. Finally learned they wouldn't be filling the role 'at this time' (months later). Very amateurish behavior for such a large company. This was in the professional group, not consumer.
Interview Question – Basic HR questions, past salary, etc. Answer Question

I spoke individually with each member of my prospective team members (five people total), and the interview was complete at about 2:00 pm.
