    Accountant Interview

    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific (Atlanta, GA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Was in interview for more than 2 hours. You have to talk to two managers and answers several questions and then switch to two different managers. It is very stressful. I felt in my interview the managers were not prepared and the controller was too busy answering emails and text messages. Didn't really feel I had her full attention.

    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!
