    I have been working at MeadWestvaco full-time (more than 3 years)


    MWV is a very people oriented company. Management is encouraged to listed to what the employees are looking for in career satisfaction and give the opportunity to prove yourself if those areas. One of the best benefits packages of a company this size. A very good work life balance.


    Very few cons. For some, a con might be that the company pays for performance. If a person wants a job where they can do the minimum and get paid the same as a performer, this is not the company for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and always make sure when hiring decision makers you continue to hire individuals that care about others as much or more than themselves.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at MeadWestvaco.

    Interview Details

    It was a basic sit-down setting in a room. They asked me an array of regular interview questions and my experiences in certain situations. It was a pleasant time and I enjoyed talking to them. I was asked to give examples of certain situations where I had experienced difficulties dealing with co-workers and how I handled it, and questions of the like.
