    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at TVA (Knoxville, TN) in July 2011.

    Interview

    I was initially called by a "recruiter' through networking. The recruiter reviewed my resume and asked me some general questions about my experience. He also let me know what to expect during the interview process. Prior to the actual on-site interview, we took a battery of tests, mostly technical questions. Then we were flown to the site and took more tests, written and on a computer screen. One of the interviews involved a operating a landing module on computer simulator. The interviews concluded with a panel interview of three managers. The on-site process took two days.
