    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at MeadWestvaco in April 2014.

    Applied online. Got an interview with a recruiter within a week. Started with a 60,000-foot view of my resume, then typical behavior based questions. Wanted to know my salary requirements. Interviewer was very professional and kept the conversation one-sided - all about me and nothing about what the job was like.

    Interview Details

    Some of the best HR & recruitment experience. The interview was very lax and casual, yet professional. Interviewer had clearly enjoyed his time at the company. Interview felt more like a conversation. Quick follow-up as well.
