    Interview

    Become familiar with the company's Market Based Management principles/10 guiding principles beforehand. The company is 100% set on these and they really mean it when they say, for example, that they want you to correct your boss if they are doing something incorrectly in the lab. Most interview questions will be testing how you will fit in with this company culture.

    Inside Account Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific (Atlanta, GA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Interviewers should definitely familiarize themselves with the company's MBM management philosophy as this is the cornerstone of the entire corporate structure. The preliminary portion of the interview included a phone screen with a HR representative. Once the group was narrowed, a four hour in-person interview was conducted at the corporate office with four other candidates. The group was divided and each individual was subjected to one-on-one interviews with four managers which lasted for one hour each. From what I gathered, there was another round of four candidates interviewing later in the afternoon for a total of eight in-person interviews. Two candidates were later offered positions.

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific (Atlanta, GA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The HR department was like something I have never seen before. The girl scheduled and missed 5 phone calls, 2 on the same day.
    It was unreal, I was scratching my head trying to figure out how a world class organization could put up with the incredible lack of professionalism.
    She cut the first phone interview short, asked to postpone it, then weeks later she didn't seem to remember anything we had talked about. At that point I had written GP off, but when they offered me an interview who was I to say no.
    Grueling 6 hr in person interview.
    And BTW, even if I had gotten the offer I still would have rated it a negative experience because I have never in my life had to deal with anyone that unprofessional.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific (Atlanta, GA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Received an initial phone screening about 1 1/2 week after applying online. Four days after that I got a call for a face to face interview. Interviewed with four different people and asked a lot of behavioral based questions. The company is really big on Market Based Management so I suggest you read up on that. Overall the interview process was not bad..... intense but not bad.... I have not heard anything yet but was told that I would here something within a week of my interview... keeping my fingers crossed!
