Business Services Representative/Receptionist (Former Employee), Gallatin, TNDecember 26, 2013
Pros: very quiet and stressless job!
Cons: sometimes the job was too quiet and stressless!! not a lot of human contact.
TVA is a great place to work, but it's very hard to get hired on. Usually have to go through a "contractor" for a probationary period of 6 months. Once and if you get a position there, people do not leave. Very low turn-over. Great pay, and benefits. The people I worked with were usually out on the site, so my days were typically very quiet.
