    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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. I recommend researching the company and base some questions off the research you did.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific Corporation (Atlanta, GA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    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

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me a time you worked for a team and a conflict arose, how did you resolve it?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    My skills and talents are better suited in a different position.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    This interview was for the accounting, internal audit, tax, and treasury internship at Georgia Pacific. I interviewed at my university. The interviewing process took 60 minutes. I had to go to 3 different rooms (each had 2 interviewers) for 20 minutes each. Every room kept asking my geographical preferences when it came to working. If you're open to moving to a different state, you are more likely to get the job. Individually the questions were not too hard, but I was asked about 10 questions total which got kind of repetitive. room 1: When did you think outside the box and use an unconventional approach to solve a problem? What one accomplishment are you most proud of? When is a time you had to rely on someone else's knowledge to get though a task? Name a time when one of your work colleagues didn't pull their own weight and what did you do? What area in your life could you improve on the most? room 2: When did you have to critique someones work and how did you do it? Name something specific from your previous internship that had a direct correlation with your coursework. (They drilled me on my job duties for this previous internship) room 3: When did you step up and become a leader / take on responsibility when you weren't asked? Name a time when you didn't receive enough credit for your work and how did you handle it? -----I don't remember the last question exactly but it was something like this: When did you provide a new solution to an old problem OR When did you come up with a system that changed how things were done in the past? (Did the interview yesterday, so ignore whether or not I got an offer)

    Interview Questions

    • Most difficult was room 2. Wanted to know every detail of my prior internship, and how it would prepare me for GP.   Answer Question

    Met them at the career fair. Great and nice people. Lucky to score an interview with them. The first interview for a college recruitment is on campus and it is a behavioral interview.

Not a hard interview they just wanted to get to know you and see if you could fit in their culture.
