    The process took a day - interviewed at Georgia-Pacific Corporation in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    First, there was a phone interview screening with an HR rep. He asked some basic questions and a couple of behavioral questions given to him from the hiring manager. I got a call back a couple days later saying that they wanted to skip the phone interview with the manager and brought me to Atlanta. They had me interview with 6 people (each one on one). Then I went to lunch with the hiring manager and one other person.

    IT Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. 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.

    Project Manager Interview

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

    The process took 1 week - interviewed at Georgia-Pacific Corporation in July 2007.

    Interview Details

    Long interview process, be prepared for over half a day.

    In the first step, the recruiter will call and schedule a time for a phone interview. In the phone interview, you will be asked general questions about your past experience. It should last 30 minutes or so.

    In the face to face interview, I spoke with 5 people. All in a one-on-one format. They will call out a core value and expect for you to give an example illustrating how you handled yourself in that situation. So for example, the core value may be Integrity and you give an example of a time in your career when your Integrity was questioned and what you did.

    Other core values include teamwork, Respect, Ownership, and Value (what do you do that brings value to company). Have plenty examples of past work experience.

    I have also had interviews there that were in a panel format. One panel gave a written test.

    You will leave tired when you finish interviewing.

    Reporting Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Georgia-Pacific Corporation in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview process at Georgia-Pacific is rather grueling. They invited me in for four separate one hour interviews, so an entire half-day. I met with three departmental leaders including the hiring manager as well as a rep from Human Resources. It went pretty well. I may not have been exactly what they were looking for, but I thought that I held my own during each interview. I was told they would follow up within a few days to a week. I sent thank you emails and expressed that I looked forward to hearing back from them. One month later, still nothing. I think it is inexcusably poor that a reputable company like GP would invite someone to their offices for a half day's worth of interviews (I had to use PTO at my current job) and never let the candidate know one way or the other. Obviously, I did not get the job. I have been called a rising star by two other companies, and you know who will never get an application from me again? Georgia-Pacific.

    I applied through university job board and they called me in for an interview. The interview was not hard, they just asked basic team based questions. I related all my answers back to teamwork and experiences I had with groups in school. I interviewed with the manager and the Systems Analyst guy that I would eventually work under. The interview took about 45 minutes.
