    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at International Paper (Memphis, TN) in October 2019.

    Interview

    Went through a round of on site interviews. 3 separate interviews with pairs of managers. They asked fairly generic questions about development experience and a few more specific questions catered to my resume. There were no technical questions. They also gave me a fair amount of time to ask my own questions about the position.

    Panel interview with 3-5 interviewers. I have been on both sides of this interview - as a candidate and later as an interviewer.

They may not be worded exactly the same, but you will be asked some variation of the questions below.

    IT Summer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at International Paper (Memphis, TN).

    Interview

    The interview process is very laid back. First interview was on campus. After passing the first interview, you are admitted to a second interview at the Memphis headquarters. You are given a hotel room and transportation to the reception (where you meet the interviewers with FOOD!) and the interviews themselves. Three interviews, with two managers each. You also get breaks and food in between to relax the nerves. Had a great time!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at International Paper (Memphis, TN) in May 2018.

    Interview

    I applied on a Monday night and got a called on a Tuesday from the HM to set up a phone interview. However, when she called I was on the road and didn't call her back until the following day. When I called her back, she put me on hold for about 5 minutes. However, she didn't press a hold button, but instead put the phone down and I could hear everything going on in the background, which I shouldn't have been able to, but whatever. We then set up a time later in the day to do a more formal interview. I called her at our time and asked how she was, her reply, "Rushing." Which I thought was extremely unprofessional. You knew you had an interview to do at a certain time and should have been prepared. She started talking about what she had for lunch to fill the time up and bring up my profile and information. Anyway after being on the phone for about 30 minutes, she finally allowed me to speak about my experience in which I was only able to talk about one job before she started speaking over me, she asked me ONE question, which was what my salary requirements were. We scheduled an in person interview, however beforehand I'd e-mail the recruiter to let her know that I wanted to withdraw my candidacy. It just did not seem like the right company for me.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at International Paper (Memphis, TN) in November 2017.

    Interview

    First heard of them at a university sponsored career fair. Talked to the recruiter and turned in a resume for them to review. Received a call to schedule an interview in the next few days and it was all behavioral questions. Received an offer to go to round two of interviews in Memphis in about a month. Flew me out and showed me around the city and had a dinner networking event before interviews the next day. The final interviews were three separate 45 minute interviews with two employees. All three interviews had identical questions which were all behavioral.
