Neutral Outlook
Approves of CEO

I worked at West Linn Paper full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

    Average Interview
    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at West Linn Paper (Corvallis, OR) in Jun 2015

    Interview

    It was conducted in person at the Oregon State University Campus. The interviewer was a young chemical engineer that taught one of my classes a couple years prior. It was a relaxed interview consisting of questions about how I work with other people and the reason I want the position. Interviews were followed by an informational session about operator assistant positions.
