    I have been working at Knoxville Utilities full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company cares and invests in the development of their employees, available training and leadership training opportunities. Good work Life balance. Good benefits and health care plan.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for growth in engineering. Too conservative for doing business with.

    Multiple management changes brings different ideas and priorities, needs to keep management in their departments longer and bring more young people on board

    little appreciation for innovation, needs to invest a lot in some of their facilities.

    compensations can be improved to be more competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees suggestions, improve aging facilities, some employees give more and deserve more, some underperforming employees take advantage of the organization and need to be let go.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Knoxville Utilities.

    Interview

    I was invited in to a panel interview 3 days after submitting an application online. It was ok, sort of unprepared, and most of the panel were there because they had to be. After that I was invited back to meet the managers then got a call about a week later to fill out the background check. This took 14 days to get results then I had to do a preemployment physical but no drug screening which I thought was odd. Overall the entire process took about 2 months from application date to start date.
