    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific (Fordyce, AR) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Had a phone screening with the Talent Selection Director, followed by phone interview with the Regional Controller, Corporate Controller, and Director of Analysis. All fairly basic interviews mainly discussing my resume with a few behavioral questions in there. Then I was asked to come down to the manufacturing plant in Fordyce, AR for the final round of interviews with the Plant Controller and Plant Manager. Each interview was roughly 45 minutes and I was asked about my resume as well as quite a few behavorial questions. Know the GP core principles because I was asked about them many times throughout all of my interviews. After the final round of interviews, I was immediately taken on a tour of the plant with one of the head engineers. The next day I was called and offered the job.
