Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific.

Interview

I applied online and about a month later HR emailed me and setup a phone interview. It was mostly behavioral questions and about my interest in the position and any qualifications I had. They called me the next day to setup a phone call with the hiring manager which was all about my resume and interest in the position. The next day I got another call from HR to setup a on site interview. That interview was about 6 hours. I may and spoke with the plant manager, hiring manager, HR, and some process engineers. All behavioral questions and a plant tour. They were all very nice and open about the company. A few days later I got the offer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific in July 2011.

    Interview

    Phone Interview to screen candidates. Then an onsite day long behavioral interview with several one on one interviews with different managers and potential coworkers. It was a good way to get to know the company at the same time they got to know me.

    They were very professional and easy to get along with although each location and plant will be different.

    My suggestion is to have all the questions that you want to know about ahead of time.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell us about a time that you had to manage multiple pressing projects at the same time. How do you normally do this?   Answer Question
