I worked at Georgia-Pacific Corporation full-time (less than an year)

Pros

I worked in transportation and found a lot of support while training. Most everyone was very nice and my bosses were truly great women who wanted our department to do well. If I made a mistake, it was always taken as a learning opportunity.

Cons

Most of the work is done in front of a computer, and most of the people you talk to are through phones and emails. The days can be long and boring.

    Pros

    They are big on safety-0 tolerance; greenness; efficient use of recycled material, and taking ownership of job. They have ethics rules in place---fair treatment of everyone. Overall the treatment is good.

    Cons

    Some supervisors are lacking in the area of training, and knowledge. My supervisor did not know as much as I did about the job----he did a poor job on instructing me---I know, I have trained many people on various jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change your policy on supervisors--training new hires. Make sure they start fast and smart; taking time to make sure new hires "get it", not a half-baked training.
