    I have been working at Georgia-Pacific full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific (Kennesaw, GA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    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.
