    I have been working at Tennessee Department of Environment full-time (More than a year)


    The benefits are really good. The pay is alright, but i'm living in Nashville and it's not enough.


    At least for my office there is a lot of dysfunctional employee/manager relationships. Sometimes there isn't a lot of support for ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on your employees and not so much on yourselves.

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Tennessee Department of Environment in January 2016.


    Received email asking to complete electronic questionnaire ("first round interview"). The questions were pretty basic, as described below. Received confirmation that I had submitted the questionnaire. Over two months later, received an email stating that I had "failed to timely respond to their invitation to interview" and therefore I was "not selected for hire." Perplexed, I called the number in the email. They had no record of my submittal nor the verification email they sent back to me stating they had received it. I offered to forward the verification email, but the HR rep was not interested. Generally, she was unapologetic when I pointed out this problem and awkwardly hung up on me.
