    Entry Level Laborer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Longview, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Longview, WA
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Weyerhaeuser in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    The initial application process consisted of standing in line for several hours at the unemployment office. This was followed by a fairly in depth application and a knowledge test. After a few weeks there was a phone interview, a few weeks after that they called to set up a initial interview.

    The initial interview was brief and relatively informal it was more of a description of the potential job and a slightly better explanation the remaining interview process. I was informed at this stage that I would be contacted in three to five days if I had been chosen for the next level of the hiring process. After two weeks had passed I assumed they had gone with another candidate when they called to inform me I had made it to the final round of the interview process. They set up a meeting for the following week, a group interview.

    I arrived at the "Gauntlet" interview, there were five employees ranging from Human Resources to foremen and supervisors all asking questions and writing in their notebooks. As intimidating as the situation initially appeared they managed to present a fairly relaxed environment throughout the interview. I left feeling like I had made a good impression and was told I would hear from them by the end of the week to hear if I had gotten the job or if they had gone with the other candidate. Friday came and went with no call, it's now been a few months so I assume they went with the other guy.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult questions they ask you are hypothetical situations ranging from co-worker safety violations to witnessing theft or fraud. The interviewers tell you that there are no right or wrong answers to these questions, their facial reactions and writing in their notebooks as you speak are the most difficult portion, it was quite distracting.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in McComb, MS
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Weyerhaeuser in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    Spoke with Employee and was forwarded to HR. HR contacted and set up interview. Interviewed with HR, Employee, 2 Management persons. They asked specific job related questions. Only a few "HR" personality questions and questioned me on how I would rate myself on specific job related skills. Overall it was an interview where both parties communicated the needs of the job and if I met them or not. I had little doubt of the outcome of the interview but was not dissapointed because the job skills/needs were out of my skill set.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Weyerhaeuser in December 2008.

    Interview Details

    After applying online, if you are moving forward in the process you get a phone interview. The phone interview really structured around the position and my past experience/qualifications. It was 30 minutes or so long. I then moved forward to an onsite interview which was done by a panel (3 others). They each asked different questions and it was highly behavioral based. Looking at my past experiences for conflict, strengths, teaming, etc.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Greenwood Village, Arapahoe, CO
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Weyerhaeuser in November 2008.

    Interview Details

    Weyerhaeuser is a very structured company so it was a very strait forward interview process. There were some standard questions from both individuals and in group settings. I would say they were quite comprehensive and behavior based sets of questions.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked me what I felt the future of technology in construction was.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Was able to negotiate a slightly higher salary than offered but apparently the initial offer amount took some lobbying internally as well. Their ranges are pretty tight. They pay a fair wage but it is calculated against regional salary norms and local cost of living estimates and blah, blah, blah. Not a lot of room to recruit superstars.
