    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Tennessee Department of Transportation (Jackson, TN) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Very long onboarding process. The interview was a basic interview. It was a few people on the interview panel and it was a bit intimidating. The position was more of a secretary for a certain department within the company. The description should have been a little more specific.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Tennessee Department of Transportation (Nashville, TN) in November 2010.

    Interview

    The initial application and setup of the interview went very well. After arriving at the office, I had to wait about 20 minutes past the time of the interview. Out of the 4 people I interviewed with, only the HR woman seemed interested. The three engineers I spoke with did not seem interested at all. All the questions asked were from a general list. I caught them looking at the clock after 10 minutes. There was no discussion, just a scripted list of questions. When I asked questions, I was given minimal answers with no details. I also heard one of the engineers comment to another, "Only a few more hours of this, then we're done." It just seemed like they were ready to leave and go home the entire time.
