    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific (Atlanta, GA) in May 2010.

    Interview

    HR contacted me and was very professional. The initial phone interview was followed by a hiring manager phone interview. All interactions with recruiters and interviewers were a very pleasant experience. All were very professional, friendly and competent. The process is very slow though, so be patient. GP uses Behavioral Based interview techniques, so prepare for the tough questions on "how did you handle xxxx".

    • Give a situation where you were asked to do something you knew was wrong, and how did you handle it?   Answer Question
    • How do you handle situations where you must prioritize, yet each stakeholder needs you to respond or deliver at the same time?   Answer Question

    Contacted for two phone interviews, eventually made site visit.
    Behavior based questions, process discussion, Review Common Interview Questions and Prepare Responses.
    Another key to interview success is preparing responses to expected interview questions. First, inquire as to the type of interview to expect (which you can do by asking your contact person at the organization). Your goal is composing detailed yet concise responses, focusing on specific examples and accomplishments. A good tool for remembering your responses is to put them into story form that you can tell in the interview. No need to memorize responses (in fact, it’s best not to), but at least develop talking points. QuintCareers has a number of excellent tools to help you with interview questions and responses.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific.

    Interview

    1. Phone: Mainly asked behavioral questions about situations of adversity, work history
    2. Phone: Project Manager tells more about the structure, philosophy, and job
    3. Onsite: Meet the team - did not make it to this point

    The talent coordinator was very nice, but very unprofessional. We had to postpone the first interview five times after she couldn't make the interview. She also never followed up with me about rescheduling, so I had to initiate everything.
