    Compliance Officer Interview

    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.

    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.

    The interview process was about four hours long. It consisted of an hour to an hour and a half of testing and then the rest was interviews with Human Resources, three department peers, the direct report boss and divisional boss. The testing was the most challenging because you were given a specified amount of time to complete to two different exercises.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at TVA (Chattanooga, TN) in July 2015.

    Interview

    It was very laid back. Mostly focused on what I wanted to get out of a job at TVA, and what I'm interested in after graduation. I was interviewed by two people, then I met several of the workers from the group that was interviewing me just to get a feel for what it would be like working there.
