    I have been working at NorthWestern Energy full-time for more than a year


    I have greatly appreciated the concern NWE shows for my personal goals and ambitions as well as safety. Safety is always emphasised above efficiency. Shortly after I was hired, my manager sat down with me and asked what direction I wanted to go - towards management or developing expertise in my department. That really made me feel comfortable discussing my goals.


    The insurance package is excellent... if you expect to have major medical work. The deductible is so high that I don't expect insurance to ever pay a penny towards my expenses. The Health Savings account does help make up for that as the company pays into it monthly (if you're on the High Deductible plan)

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at NorthWestern Energy.

    Interview Details

    They ask you a bunch of questions. It is one of the most detailed interviews I ever went through. When I applied for a position of New Construction I was easily the most qualified. But they only hire seniority so they hired a woman who did a terrible job. She was fired shortly thereafter. I decided at this point I would not be applying for any other positions.

    They sent me a letter. I started at 11.56 an hour and my pay went up a lot and regularly.
