    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at TVA.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview. The employer was very honest with me and told me exactly how many other applicants there were and when I should expect to hear back from HR after the interview. The interview felt laid back and less formal since it was over the phone.
