Marketing Director Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Atlanta, GA

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
