Sales Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific (Atlanta, GA) in August 2015.

Interview

Initially contacted by recruiter for 30 min phone interview, then moved to 30 min phone interview with hiring manager a couple days later. Next step was two on one in person interview with hiring manager and future co-worker. Last step was flown into Atlanta for a whole day of interviews (five separate one hour sessions) with different individuals throughout the business. Two weeks later I was given a verbal offer.

I prepared by studying their MBM management philosophy and tried to tie that into my interview and resume, particularly Value Creation and Principled Entrepreneurship.

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific in January 2010.

    Interview

    It was very quick. I recieved a phone call from an internal recruiter who passed along my resume to a hireing manager, who in turn called me to set up an face to face interview. Once this inteview was conducted, I was again contacted by the HR at GP to set up a second panel interview with some of the upper management. once this took place i was called by said hireing manager and extended an offer.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation phase. GP will offer you a salary. Either you take it or dont, if not, they will move on to the next candidate.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific in July 2009.

    Interview

    Had initial phone screening interview with corporate recruiter consisting of behavioral questions. Recruiter provided information on how to prepare for their type of interview questions which was helpful. Next were three group interviews at a regional office that lasted one hour each. Questions asked related to experience and behavioral questions. Interesting that MBM was not mentioned one time in any interviews since GP is so high on it.
