Negotiation Details – I would ensure that everything that is negotiated is in writing in the job offer. If they offer some bonus plan ensure it is documented in the offer.

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Georgia-Pacific Corporation in January 2010.

Interview Details – It was very quick. I recieved a phone call from an internal recruiter who passed along my resume to a hireing manager, who in turn called me to set up an face to face interview. Once this inteview was conducted, I was again contacted by the HR at GP to set up a second panel interview with some of the upper management. once this took place i was called by said hireing manager and extended an offer.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Georgia-Pacific Corporation in July 2009.

Interview Details – Had initial phone screening interview with corporate recruiter consisting of behavioral questions. Recruiter provided information on how to prepare for their type of interview questions which was helpful. Next were three group interviews at a regional office that lasted one hour each. Questions asked related to experience and behavioral questions. Interesting that MBM was not mentioned one time in any interviews since GP is so high on it.

Interview Question – At your last job, what did you do when you saw something unethical going on?   Answer Question
