I worked at Y-12 National Security Complex full-time (More than 10 years)
You know you are working on something important for the country. Great work/life balance.
It is to be expected that there is an enhanced security posture, and this can take some getting used to.
Advice to Management
None. I always my immediate supervisors cared and were respectful.
I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Y-12 National Security Complex.
This process is more of a holdover from previous companies that have managed Y-12 and really cannot be pointed at CNS, however they have not corrected it! The interview questions have nothing really to do about the job and more about personality. It is ensuring you always give them a problem, how you dealt with the problem, and the outcome. If you don't, you lose points. The questions are usually poorly written and have very little to do with what you would be doing.
