I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific Corporation (Pennington, AL) in November 2014.
I was called up one night after applying online and asked if I was still interested. There was a very short phone screen and then about a week or so later got set up with the interview onsite. It was a really nice fully paid trip. Didn't get an offer but the experience was good.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific Corporation in November 2014.
I had an initial phone interview with a corporate recruiter. Then I had a phone interview with the corporate safety director. The phone interview was casual. He was on vacation and appeared to be distracted with his dog. He even let his dog out during the phone interview and it was barking.
- How do you handle difficult employees? Answer Question

I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific Corporation.
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+ week. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific Corporation.
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.
- Explain a time when something occurred in the global environment that affected a project you were working on, school or work experience. Answer Question

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific Corporation.
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.
- Tell me about a time you worked hard at something and didn't receive the credit you think you deserved and how did it make you feel? Answer Question
- Declined OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific Corporation (Atlanta, GA) in October 2014.
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

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