    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 8+ weeks. I interviewed at WestRock.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview 2 months ago with the regional finance director. It seemed like it went really well, since the he kept telling me I was doing well and talked to me about the next steps in details. I should have heard from them 2 weeks at most after the interview. I followed up with HR twice, but she did not have any feedback for me from the director. However, she is very kind and professional, and assured me the position hasn’t been filled. That position has been open for almost a year. Something is really wrong with the company. They need to give people proper feedback.

    Staff Accountant Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at WestRock (Norcross, GA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    It was a lengthy process. There was only one interview. The interviewer was not extremely knowledgeable about the processes of the job. The interview was blocked for only an hour as they had the conference room booked immediately following the interview, unfortunately, the interview ran long. I had a number of questions, I just think it was unfortunate only a block of time was scheduled for the interview, none the less, it turned out well.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at WestRock.

    Interview

    Was simple and fast. Felt more like a conversation than an interview. They did not ask to many questions, they were more interested to see if you could be a leader.
