    Anonymous Employee in Knoxville, TN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at TDS Telecommunications (Knoxville, TN) in April 2017.


    Very standard, run of the mill interview. I didn't have an in person interview, I had two phone interviews. They didn't ask any really tricky questions. Just your standard "why do you want to work for us?" and "why should we chose you?"
