    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at US Department of Energy (Knoxville, TN) in May 2020.

    Interview

    The Interview was a virtual interview (audio only, no video) with a local representative, and two reps from DC office. It lasted about 25 minutes and was choppy at best. It was difficult to hear the interviewers (had good cell reception) and they seemed distant and uninterested. Its been a month and a half and still no word on whether they are still interviewing or have already closed the position.
