    Technical Analyst Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific.

    Interview

    It took a little over a week. A few days after I put in an application, an HR rep gave me a call to gauge if I was a good enough match to send over to the hiring manager. Once that was out of the way, I was scheduled for a phone interview with the hiring manager a few days later.

    The questions focused mostly on technical skill set and experience and took about 45 minutes, though we'd originally only scheduled 30. I could tell he was very knowledgeable and we were able to have a comfortable discussion on the position and what it would entail. At the end of the interview, I was told he would have the HR rep schedule a behavioral based interview with me as the next step and gave me some background details on it.

    I never heard back after this point. I'm a little surprised they didn't at least give a rejection email based on the previous email behavior with HR.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific.

    The phone interview was mainly behavioral questions and asked about previous experience. The recruiter would not speak up clearly and typed extremely loud so it was difficult to listen and understand the questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific in June 2017.

    Interview

    First interview went good, however the second one really want nothing just basic talking and seemed to be drilling me on my education which had nothing to do with the job. It's a career change that I didn't want to pursue no more. I don't know if I got the job since it was the weekend. Hopefully I find out soon.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific (Toledo, OR) in May 2017.

    Interview

    First you have a phone interview with the recruiter. If you pass that interview they will email you links to assessments. There are 2 of those that you need to pass, they include questions about your character and work ethic and also a few appitude tests to determine your problem solving skills, awareness, and ability to multi-task. If you pass the assessments they will contact you for a live interview. My live interview included a tour of the facility and where you would be working if hired. After the tour there were 4 sets of interviews, 3 of the interviews had 2 people asking questions, and 1 just had 1 person. They were about 20 min long each and asked basically the same questions about your character and how you handled certain things at your previous jobs.

    Systems Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Easton, PA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific (Easton, PA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I had two phone screenings -- one by HR and the other by the hiring manager. I was contacted again to schedule a 4 hour F2F interview where the hiring manager would fly up (from Atlanta, GA) to complete. Immediately upon arriving for the F2F I was told they are going to add another person to the interview (1 more hour). After the F2F I followed up with a thank you email and never heard a response for 2 weeks. After a two week wait I sent another email asking about the status of the position. Again, I never received a response. As a last ditch effort I sent a follow up to the status email a week later and finally got a response saying that the position is on hold as they are changing requirements.
    Update: I'm now told that the position was relocated to Atlanta, GA. Go management!

    Application

    I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific (Los Angeles, CA) in April 2017.

    The HR person will probably get your name wrong and not tell you thank you after the interview. She will make faces during the interview. After the interview she closed the door quick.
