REACH Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at International Paper (New York, NY).

Interview

International Paper invited me and approximately 50-60 other candidates to a 3 day interview process. The first evening we had the opportunity to meet employees from all the different mills that they were hiring from. Day two consisted of a tour of one of the paper mills in the morning and interviews for the rest of the day. These interviews were split into two types. One was two rounds of your traditional type of interview. The second was a more behavioral interview where you were put into a team and had to solve a problem. The day then concluded with a final dinner. The next morning there was some final networking opportunities over breakfast then we were off.

    Interview

    I had an interview on campus. There were two interviewers both had gone through the REACH program. The interview was casual and the questions were standard HR questions. They focused on previous experience and my resume. Some of the questions were similar, so I ended up discussing the same experiences multiple times.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at International Paper (Stillwater, OK) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I had an initial interview on my college campus. This interview was mostly behavioral questions, but also, the interviewers were making sure I was a good fit for International Paper. My advice is to ask many questions. Make sure you are prepared for a challenging work environment, with a company that truly cares about the people it hires and their development.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at International Paper.

    Interview

    Applied through university career fair. Interview was a typical personality based interview. Interviewers were nice but also seemed to be observing everything you say to find a flaw. I probably wasn't as experience in the field the were looking for as other candidates which is why I believe to have not received a second round invitation because the interview was pretty straightforward.

    • No technical question just typical stuff like here's a situation in the workplace how would you react.   Answer Question

    Interview

    They came to my school to do initial interviews, ~30min long. Immediately after I got invited to go to an onsite interview. At the onsite about 100 over students were also invited. I was put in a Marriott and they a whole agenda planned out for the next 2 days. The first night was speed dating and a mini career fair for all the different locations. The second day was a mill tour and two ~45 min interviews. I chose which locations I was most interested in. The next day I had breakfast and talked to employees one last night. Great experience.
