Do you work at Georgia-Pacific? How did you find the job? How did you get that first interview?

Any advice for someone trying to get in?

I submitted my resume online and a GP recruiter called 4 hours later.

I telephone interviewed with him and, although I met all the educational and techinical requirements along with having plenty of industry-related knowledge and expereince, it seemed that my expereince was not "job-specific" and "recent" enough for their satisifaction.

They want the "perfect match" so they don't have to provide training and the recruiters can cover their @sses just in case you don't workout. - Typical. :(

I too submitted my resume a while back. The recruiter called. I exceeded all requirements and have worked with several at the mill advertised. The recruiter had absolutely ZERO technical knowledge, so I had really no questions he could answer. His concern was to educate me on the history of GP. Well, I've been around this industry for over 12 years and I know all about the history of GP.

From speaking with headhunters, GP has evolved/devolved into an even more coporate nature since the Koch aqusition.

Tell me jacob,

What does it take to work @ GP
I am aware that GP is more than just paper. I've been in the design industry for at least 30 years. I use GP's products every day. Like most frustrated job seekers, we are looking for that perfect position that allows for personal and professional growth and satisfaction.

I have accomplished a great deal in 30 yrs, but there is more to do. Is GP age and color phobic?

OK Jacob I live in Shepherd Texas. Just moved there from La Porte. It would be great to live where the job is close. How hard are you pushing the degree? What kind of fit are you looking for? I have 20+ years of experience in safety.

I applied for the FMLA,Safety position in Palatka. My profile states that I have not applied for any jobs, so I tried to apply for the position again. The automated program would not allow me to do that, stating I had already applied. I am confused, so I called Jacob and left him a voice message. I have not heard from him, and I am wondering if my resume was received and if the position is still open. Thanks!

Avoid this company like the plague, poor management, poor decisions, not anywhere near the same company since koch took over. Unless of course you like long hours, no/rare weekends, no family life and being walked out the door on someone’s whim for some sort of fabricated "safety" issue...watch you back here at all times. It may sound like im just a digruntled employee but Im not. Every job I have ever had I have found good in, this one on the other hand has no moral fabric to bind to.

I submitted a application for a MGR IT position at the Pennington, AL facility and heard nothing. I meet all the requierements even having knowledge of the manufacturing software. I currently live in Northeast Ohio but very interested in the opportunity. What is the wait time before you hear back.

If you never got a call back consider yourself lucky. It would be better to be unemployed living under a bridge than to work for this company.

I have also been trying to get into GP in Brunswick, GA. I just wish there was some way to follow up on resumes after submitting them. Although I have not worked in a mill, I do have inventory, administration and hr experience. I am not a person to flit from job to job and would be a long term, loyal employee. It's just getting the opportunity to talk to someone.
