    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific (Decatur, GA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was easy. The leader was really going through for what is he looking for so it had flowed very well. The hiring is quick ( in case of contract) but for the permanent position, it takes awhile. Everything was great.

    Research Chemist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific (Philadelphia, PA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    This interview took place at the biannual Anerican Chrmistry Society meeting. It was a very general interview, more of a informative interview than one for a particular position. We spoke 1:1 for approximately 30 minutes, first reviewing my résumé before moving into more general "interview" questions. The entire interview proceeded organically, more as a continuing conversation than the more typically question and answer style interrogation.

    Interview Questions

    • Can you tell me about one time when you had to deal with an interpersonal conflict?   Answer Question

    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.
