Operations Research Lead Interview

Operations Research Lead
Atlanta, GA

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Georgia-Pacific Corporation in June 2014.

Interview Details – 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?

Interview Question – Was there any moments that you disagree with your boss?   Answer Question

Process Engineer Interview

Process Engineer

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Georgia-Pacific Corporation in July 2013.

Interview Details – Pretty standard interview and hiring process, the corporate recruiters were really great! Local HR was not very good.
Just know how to answer the situational based interview questions. They are looking for what the situation was, the behavior you displayed and the outcome of the situation....SBO
Plant tour to start the interview was appropriate.

Interview Question – Not really difficult but I had to think about it.....Why do you want to move to Texas?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I did use a job recruiter so it was pretty easy. My recruiter went to bat for me, and gave me advice.

Difficult Interview

IT Analyst Interview

IT Analyst
Atlanta, GA

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
