    Pros

    Well run at the Corporate level with good to excellent senior corporate management.
    Broad business diversity from smaller town utilities, coal & gas electrical generation, excellent construction and operational track record, and a diverse non-regulated energy, plus oil & gas division.
    The company is based out of Rapid City, SD with strong ethical and a genuine regard for employee development.

    Cons

    The oil & gas division is having a tough time these past couple of years. This is due in part to the commodity price declines, but also for relatively mediocre natural gas prone properties and operational effectiveness. Still, the broad diversity of business divisions have been helpful during past years.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Black Hills Corporation (Rapid City, SD) in January 2014.

    Interview

    The first round was a one way video interview. There were pre-drafted questions to which we have to record our video responses. They were 4 questions and had a time limit of 30 minutes. After each question pops up we are given 30 seconds to prepare before we answer. The 4 questions were:
    1) Explain about your educational background and experience
    2) What is your dream job and why does it appeal to you?
    3) What is your current CGPA? write an essay of 200 characters. ( No time limit for this )
    4) What are your greatest accomplishments in life according to you?

    This was he first round. It was easy and had only behavioral type of questions.

    Hope that helped :) Good luck !
