    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at TVA (Knoxville, TN) in December 2016.

    Interview

    The entire process was standardized. The recruiter was great and had a wonderful personality. The panel interview, however, was very standardized. The interviewers felt like robots and were not friendly at all. This made the process a little more nerve wracking than it should have been. They got back to me fairly quickly after the interview to tell me they were going in a different direction. Overall, standard government interview.

    The HR portion is terrible but the interview was nice. Writing an interview in a way to benefit someone you do not know who is only a screener in the process is ridiculous. All resumes should go to the hiring manager.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at TVA (Chattanooga, TN) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Very professional and understood that there's a bit more political process to them due to TVA being a government entity. Interviewers were polite and professional. Relaxed environment. The only negative I found was the time between the initial application and follow-on communications. It took nearly three months to receive an initial interview.
