    Entry Level Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Georgia-Pacific Corporation.

    Interview Details

    First a 45 min on campus interview following the career fair with two engineers. The next week I was contacted via phone and email regarding site visits. Site visits consisted of one on one interviews, 30 minutes each, 5 different people followed by lunch and a tour. All behavioral questions. It's not as intimidating as it sounds, each interviewer basically asks the same questions. I'm assuming this is to make sure your answers are consistent. Most questions are geared towards teamwork, completed projects, and going above and beyond. Give long detailed answers, they seemed to respond positively to that.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Georgia-Pacific Corporation.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my university at a career fair and had the interview the next day with two very young Georgia Pacific employees. One was a recently hired college recruiter (less than 6 months), and the other, a supply chain employee. The interview wasn't bad at all but they asked a couple ridiculous questions, one of which I remember.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Georgia-Pacific Corporation.

    Interview Details

    Met recruiter at my college's career fair, signed up for an interview for the following day. There were two people interviewing me, both very nice. It was your typical behavioral based interview, lasted around 30 minutes. I was told I would hear back the following day, and never did.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Georgia-Pacific Corporation in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied to a position online and was contacted by the HR manager for related positions since the one I applied to was filled. Since I am out of state, the HR manager then set up an initial phone screening with the hiring manager for this position for a discussion regarding my interest and experience as well as more details about the role. Following that call, I flew down to Atlanta about a week later and had three final interviews back to back. Following the interviews, I received an offer two days later. The total process took about two and a half weeks once the HR manager contacted me. From my initial online application, the total process took a couple of months.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing too difficult or unexpected. I just recommend preparing great scenarios that go with each of their guiding principles to help you prepare to showcase your character, skills, and experience.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    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

    Interview began with the employers introducing themselves which led into a conversational interview. They did ask some questions, but not hard ones and not many. The entire interview consisted of 3 questions but all very relaxed. Employers would ask more questions regarding the situation and answer that I had given.
