    Logistics Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific (Raleigh, NC) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I initially had a phone interview with an HR rep out of the mid-West. She was exceptionally pleasant and very accommodating. Typical preliminary weeding out process type of interview. I made it past that and was asked to come in with a face to face with the local team.

    A week later I was in their regional office speaking to a panel of three in the group I was interviewing with. All three were extremely pleasant to speak with. It was a behavioral interview so it was all situational examples such as . . ."Tell us about a time when. . .""When was the last time you had this happen. . .""What happened when you had to deal this this type of person. . ." They had been very upfront about the process and that it would be a behavioral interview ahead so I was not surprised when it came to actually sitting down with them.

    Although I did not get the position I would not hesitate from applying again for a position. I called the HR rep back after I found out I was not chosen and asked for any feedback the panel had for me and she gladly shared everything they had written. It was very beneficial to get their take on the interview. She spent a good 10 minutes on the phone giving me what I requested and wished me luck in continuing my job search.

    I was thoroughly impressed with their process and follow-up. I would still actively look for positions that I was qualified for in the area.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific.

    Interview

    Getting an interview was not fairly difficult, but the interview was as they only ask behavioral interview questions so, you have to have a lot of good scenarios you know well and have been a part of in the back of your pocket.

    Anonymous Interview

    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific (Neenah, WI).

    Interview

    The interview process was intense, but they have amazing recruiters. The recruiter sent me everything I needed to be successful, called me to see if I had any questions, and even gave me hints and tips for the onsite. She worked with me through the offer process as well. Her name was Liz and she literally sold me on the organization and convinced me to leave a job I thought I'd retire from. She really helped me understand the company overall and was just a great professional to work with. The team was friendly and gave me a tour and took me to lunch. Liz even gave me restaurant recommendations for places to take my family when we came on our house hunting trip. Overall just really impressed.

    Interview

    Part behavioral interview, part conversation. They want to see if you would fit well into the company culture (which they care a lot about!) but also want to allow you to ask as many questions as you can about the company itself. Great interview experience!
