Hear from our Military Relations Manager, Victor Dennis, on what Memorial Day means to him —
“Prior to my military service, my family and I would take time to give thanks to those who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedoms. I had family members who served in World War I and II; and I enjoyed hearing the stories around their sense of pride and virtues as a service member. As a young kid, that was my way to say Thank You!
My point of view on remembering as well as honoring those men and women who died fighting for their country was elevated during and after my 20 years of military service as an Infantry Soldier. My fellow comrades are part the fallen.
I can never say enough or do enough to truly express the gratitude to those service members and their families on Memorial Day.”

I have been working at Georgia-Pacific full-time (More than 10 years)
Stable product, well funded operations, strong safety culture.
Company is owned by Koch and has a very consistent company culture which is defined by their guiding principles. It is very clear that unlike many companies mission statements which get reviewed periodically as an exercise that employees from top to bottom are expected to create value, and deal with respect and humility towards others.
Charles Koch is an excellent guide for the company, being privately held allows the company to focus on long term value instead of the next quarterly earnings report.
It is a manufacturing environment with round the clock operation and can sometimes require long hours and/or weekend work. Generally able to compensate for this by schedule flexibility at other times.
I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific (Kennesaw, GA) in October 2016.
I had an on-campus interview with 4 different recruiters for my first interview. Most of the questions are behavioral interview type of questions. For my second interview, it was a conference call with 3 executives of my department. One week later, I received a call and email for the offer letter. There were very helpful and professional. I love working with them.
