    Confidential Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Evergreen Packaging (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Interesting - hurry up and interview by phone for an hour. At the end,the promise of multiple interviews and a call the next day to schedule.

    Never heard from them again - not even a no thanks we changed our mind. Not a good professional image especially as they expand and grow their operations.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Evergreen Packaging in October 2013.

    Interview

    My recruiter made initial contact. First a screening phone interview. Then a phone interview the following week with the hiring manager. Both phone interviews were about the same review your resume. Then they quickly asked me to come in for on site interview. The on site interview consisted of a series of one to two people interviewing at the same time about five different interviews setup that day. The entire interview process the interviewers were nice and respectful.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Evergreen Packaging (Pine Bluff, AR) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Had a 30 minute phone interview, then next day, was invited for an in-person interview about a week later. It was a 2-hour + interview, broke up with 3 people on each 1-hr panel. Maybe 2-3 actual job-related questions, 98% of the interview was behavioral based questions. Room was warm, no a/c, given bottled water after first hour. Future boss in on 1st one hour panel. After interview, was told they were looking to make a decision quickly, and that was the last I heard. Though I did receive an affirmative action questionnaire about a month later. If you aren't willing to brown nose here, better skip this employer. Union environment also.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to be a Buyer (and take a step down)? This was asked by the HR Manager. I replied by saying "you could perceive it as that, but.....", to which I was interrupted and told "this is a step down!" Probably the worst question in that it was an apparent attack/way to weed me out. I wasn't allowed to answer the question any further. This was also my surprise of the interview, as I would have expected the question and/or response from someone not in human resources.   Answer Question

    Product Development Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Memphis, TN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Evergreen Packaging (Memphis, TN) in October 2010.

    Interview

    Contact was made through a recruiter. All feedback was positive, but there was a delay as a new director was coming onboard. Once the second phone interview was scheduled it was very awkward. It felt as if the individual was reading from a list, and had already written his own answers. I say this because when I turned a couple of the questions back, it was as if the answers were curtly read to me from the list. The prescribed answers showed a lack of understanding and vision on the subject matter, afterwards I immediately called the recruiter and told him "never mind".
