Hiring Process


How to Apply

Visit the Georgia-Pacific Careers page to see our current job opportunities, complete a profile, upload your resume and submit an application.


If your resume and assessment indicate you have the qualifications and experience we’re looking for, a Georgia-Pacific Human Resources representative will contact you for more information and to schedule an initial screen. From there, we’ll share your information with the hiring manager(s), who may choose to interview you.

Georgia-Pacific uses behavior-based interviewing. We recommend researching this interview style so you’ll be prepared when you meet with us. During the interview, you’ll discuss your background and we’ll ask questions about specific projects and situations from your previous employment. You’ll likely meet with several people during your visit, so bring several copies of your resume. A suit is appropriate for corporate office interviews; business casual attire is fine if your interview takes place at a manufacturing plant. If you’re unsure about what to wear or bring, call a Georgia-Pacific recruiter. We’ll be happy to advise you. 


You can expect to hear from us within a week of your interview, although it may take longer to give you an answer if we are still interviewing other candidates. Feel free to contact your recruiting team member to follow up.

If you are selected for a position, you will receive a verbal offer, followed by a formal offer letter via email or regular overnight mail. We will ask you to sign and return the letter to confirm you have accepted the job.
