    I have been working at Georgia-Pacific full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Amazing company business philosophy. Market-Based Management and the company's commitment to excellence provides a maximum growth and development opportunity.

    People are great, willing to work with you, help you and challenge your thought processes and ideas to foster the best knowledge and the greatest return from a personal perspective in a fulfilling environment, and also provide business growth that is constantly surpassing its last projections.

    Cons

    Silos exist between business groups, and often duplication of efforts are an unfortunate consequence.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving Market-Based Management and the Five Dimensions deeper into the organization and foster development and continuous improvement from a business and personal level that consistently challenges and provides fulfillment in new and creative ways to the business as well as the employees.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific (Big Island, VA).

    Interview

    Invite to apply. Test emailed. Pass the test. Phone interview. In person interview with about 10 people. Plant Tour. WHAT A WASTE OF TIME. I do not think they hire many African Americans. Interview process is a crock
