    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at International Paper (Memphis, TN) in November 2015.

    Interview

    The interview consisted of a on-campus one, followed by an invitation to interview in Memphis. They offered to fly me in and we stayed at a hotel for 2 days. The interview was on a Friday morning and consisted of talking with 4 hiring managers, who pre-selected the candidates they want to speak to. After that, they fed us lunch and we had the option of touring their data center and going to dinner downtown. The interviews were 45-min each and had no technical questions (all behavioral). Since they provide training, it seems like a job anyone can do at this point and they're just mainly looking for people that they liked to work with. The HR also made it known to everyone at the end that they will be in touch with the people selected the next business day by calling them.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you handle conflict? Describe a time when you had difficulty solving a problem and what did you do? What kind of technical skills do you have?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at International Paper.

    Interview

    The interview process was largely based on behavioral questions. Their main concerns are safety and experience in a manufacturing setting doesn't hurt. They ask about your possible experiences or to explain some things on your resume. There were a few reaction questions, or "name a time when x happened and you had to do yz to solve it. The biggest suggestion is to be personable and positive about being there.
