    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Graphic Packaging International (Portland, OR) in July 2017.

    Interview

    The Hiring process was one of the worst things ever. trust me ill tell you why. So I have this full time job that im working, but its not paying well. so i go online and i find the "finishing helper" opening from graphic packaging and apply to it that day. i dont get a call back until over a month after that asking if id be interested in coming in for an orientation. i do said orientation ,and then leave. they then take another 2 weeks for the interview. the interview went like this: 3 people are in a room. two of them are completely out of touch with the actual job you will be doing, as they are salary managers not attached to the union that represents you and sit in nice comfy offices. They grill you on all sorts of matters that honestly doesn't and shouldn't concern the employer.

    Then after the interview job offer contingent on drug and physical test.
    Easy interview overall, asked basic questions. No retarded personality questions. Interview was with a bunch of supervisors so it isn't one on one.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Graphic Packaging International in April 2016.

    Interview

    I applied on LinkedIn. I had a phone screen with the HR person, followed by a phone interview with another HR person and an engineer at the plant I would potentially work at. They asked me to drive to their facility (about 4 hrs away) to interview with the same HR person plus 3 more engineers. I was asked about 8-10 questions about previous job experiences, give me a time when..., etc. I was given a tour of the plant, then told I would hear back in about 2 weeks, and they would reimburse me for mileage.
    I sent a thank you email and my total mileage for the trip the following day. They told me to hang tight and I would hear back soon. 5 weeks have passed and i haven't heard anything or gotten my mileage reimbursement. I got another job offer shortly after, but I would have liked to have heard back so I could compare offers and pick the job and company that fit me best.

    Reliability Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in West Monroe, LA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Graphic Packaging International (West Monroe, LA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I received a call from their corporate office for a phone screen interview. 2 weeks later I had another phone interview with the HR and an engineer. They asked basic interviewing questions with one behavior based question. A week later, HR schedule an in-house interview.

    Two weeks later, my in-house interview was started. I checked in with security and HR, then they gave me a full plant tour showing me the fundamental processes of the plant. I spoke with HR to discuss benefits and following the HR interview, I was interviewed by a panel of engineering supervisors as well as the HR supervisor. Every question they asked was a behavior based question besides the "get to you know you" question. Following the panel interview, two engineers took me on a lunch interview. The lunch interview was very casual and gives the interviewer the opportunity to ask questions related to the position. I had one final interview with the engineering supervisor and the HR supervisor where they asked me one behavior based questions and two questions that were specific to the interviewer. Overall, good experience and very professional process. This was one of the most professional companies I have ever interviewed with.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Graphic Packaging International (Portland, OR) in August 2015.

    Interview

    First, a group of potential hires were brought in to tour the plant, and then we were all tested (paper, multiple choice) in five areas: mechanical aptitude, math, communications, perception speed, spacial awareness (there might have been a sixth test, but I can't remember).

    After that, I was called to schedule an interview. It was a panel interview with four people. They each took turns asking me about 15 questions. The standard, boring stuff 'why do you want to work here,' 'what's your past look like,' etc. I didn't prepare at all for this, and had a really, awful interview. Stumped on answers, had to come back to a few, and sit there and think through my answers. Other than that, I suppose it would have been an okay interview.
