    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific in September 2016.

    Interview

    The process was very friendly and included the standard subset of questions from a large corporation. It was 2 people from the operations side of the company who were asking simple questions about your leadership, experience with industry, and how well of a fit you'd make a Georgia-Pacific. They were very friendly, though they (purposely I suppose) are very difficult to read.

    Inside Account Representative Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific (Atlanta, GA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Interviewers should definitely familiarize themselves with the company's MBM management philosophy as this is the cornerstone of the entire corporate structure. The preliminary portion of the interview included a phone screen with a HR representative. Once the group was narrowed, a four hour in-person interview was conducted at the corporate office with four other candidates. The group was divided and each individual was subjected to one-on-one interviews with four managers which lasted for one hour each. From what I gathered, there was another round of four candidates interviewing later in the afternoon for a total of eight in-person interviews. Two candidates were later offered positions.

    Interview

    The interview process is unfair, taking a test online is not the same as meeting a person face to face, some people like myself do not do well with test but our performance is excellent, I wish there was no testing for this company.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    Just got done with the phone screening. Took about 20 mins total. Was told that face to face interviews were next.
    Once I applied for the position, the HR recruiter e-mailed me 2 days later telling me she wanted to schedule me for a phone screening and asked me to email her back with some dates and times I would be available. She also asked me to verify the best number to reach me at. After about a week or so she emailed back and scheduled me for the phone screening. The call was a few minuets late, but not a big deal. I've put down all the questions I can remember her asking.
