    Current Employee - Human Resources in Boise, ID

    I have been working at Idaho Power full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Job Security
    Competitive Salary for the Boise area
    Ethical Leadership

    Cons

    So traditional, sometimes not up with the times.
    Touts as work/life balanced, but that is only in some areas.
    Depending on what part of the company you are in, you could be held to a much higher standard than everyone else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut HR some slack. Continual cutbacks cause employees to feel less valued. Being told you are valuable only goes so far. Being treated as valuable is something different.

    I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Idaho Power.

    Interview Details

    They use the Situation, Task, Action, Result (STAR) behavioral method for interviews. Be prepared to think of actual situations where you were faced with challenges. Describe the situation, the task at hand, the action you took and the results of your action. Typically two different teams interview you. Provide a response for each section and you will rack up points in the interview.

    Negotiation Details
    They have a pay scale. Most managers will try and start you at the bottom of the scale.
