    Regional Human Resources Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at International Paper.

    Interview

    After submitting online, I was contacted by a "recruiter" to complete an online questionnaire. The questionnaire consisted of basic screening questions about pay, relocation, etc. A week later, I was contacted for an interview by the same recruiter.

    I was told that I was a highly south after candidate and should be receiving a call for another interview in about 1-2 weeks. Never heard anything. I followed up with the recruiter and all I got was radio silence for about 4 weeks. Never follow up. I was confident that the recruiter was a professional as his online network portrays, but being ghosted was anything but professional. I recommend recruiters be trained on properly rejecting a candidate rather than radio silence.

    Interview

    There was an on-campus interview, then I received a "golden ticket" to go to their huge on-site recruiting event. There were 70+ applicants and over 140 recruiters. The first day there was a job-fair style event where you got to see all of the different mills and see which ones you liked before you ranked them all on your preference list. The second day was a mill tour, then two interviews and a group activity in which they monitor how you work in a group. After the interviews you eat dinner and they sit you next to a recruiter from your top priority mill.
