    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific (Portland, OR) in March 2020.

    Interview

    Behavioral based interview- when I arrived they put me in a conference room with the other applicant. One person came to get the other applicant, then they came and got me. I interviewed with 2 people, then sent back to the conference room and was then interviewed by 2 different people. All the questions were situational, I had to give an example of a time I experienced the situation they brought up. I was there for about an hour. I researched behavioral based interviews and practiced. I was called the next day with a job offer. I then scheduled a date for my drug test, went in and completed the mouth swab test and began work the following week
