    I have been working at Black Hills Corporation full-time (more than 5 years)


    In my position I am trusted to be an expert at what I do. I have a lot of flexibility in my job because my manager trusts my decisions. Company has great benefits compared to other employers in my community. Leadership is open to new ideas and values input from employees.


    Heavy workload. Company runs lean to avoid lay-offs, but it can put a heavy burden on employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace a culture of trust. Share your vision for the future and let them help you get there.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Black Hills Corporation in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    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 !
