    Pros

    Longview Fibre Paper and Packaging has great employee benefits. They give comp time when necessary. The work environment encourages personal growth.

    Cons

    The relocation benefits were very low. The chances for advancement and pay raises are slow and in very small increments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look around at other paper companies and match their relocation packages and pay. This would help you attract good employees and retain them.

    Recruiting Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Longview, WA
    Anonymous Employee in Longview, WA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Longview Fibre Paper and Packaging in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    Longview has an excellent pair of recruiters who do a wonderful job of profiling the company and opportunity. Unfortunately, when finally flying in for finalist interviews, my candidate experience on a scale of 10 being highest and 1 being lowest would have to be graded as a negative 5. The most senior executive started by explaining that they have not hired the person who would have been my boss. Therefore, I would not be meeting them at my in person interview. After nearly five hours of phone and videoconference interviews in advance of flying in, you would have thought that "truth in advertising" factoid might have been mentioned in advance of the flight. Second, the senior managers had the good fortune of being with the company for 19 and 23 years respectively. Their first in person question expressed their disdain (and exhibited extreme arrogance) over the fact that I had not been blessed with similar longevity in the high tech organizations I came from. When I explained some of the economic downsizing and business changes that led to my leaving companies I invested my heart and soul into, the senior leader laughed at me and joked by saying "we wouldn't want that to happen here." The level of his insensitivity was absolutely appalling to me. Out of courtesy, I stayed the course for the entire interview though my heart knew that this company could never be an employer of choice for me. The same senior statesmen seemed antagonistic to social media recruiting, yet they complained about not having more and better candidates. He refused to provide me with a business card or email when requesting his contact information to send him a thank you card. (So instead, GlassDoor will have to suffice.)

    In the second interview with business customers the recruiting team was charged with investing in their success, the level of pain over having many positions unfilled over the course of 18 months was evident. Though there were some truly inspirational managers in the room, two walked out midway in the interview. When being asked about what I might bring to the organization that would increase candidate flow and quality, their most senior marketing manager complained that my suggested menu of items for consideration would take time and cost money. At one point in the interview, he interrupted me mid sentence to chat with his peers. His overt rudeness, in conjunction with the first panel interview left me smiling since life is short and my goal is to be in the best place for my career to grow.

    In the third panel interview, I met the rest of the HR and recruiting team. They were pleasant, positive, polite, appropriate, intelligent, passionate, creative, out-of-the-box thinkers, truly service oriented, and delightfully engaging. They were truly some of the best I have seen in my 20 years within this profession.
