    Dispatcher Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Lincoln, NE
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Black Hills Corporation (Lincoln, NE) in December 2013.

    Interview

    Small room with two managers interviewing. Basic situational style interview. They first ask you if you are nervous and uncomfortable yet, if not they wait, then moving into actual questions, they ask about you tell me about yourself. I do know other interviews are pretty much the same, people trying to hire on as managers I believed they are required to put together a presentation.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Black Hills Corporation in June 2016.

    Interview

    I found the job on Indeed and went to the company's website to fill out the application. THe application website was tedious but no more so than most. I was contacted within 2 weeks for preliminary phone interview with HR, followed by a recorded video interview, then phone interview with hiring manager, and finally a face-to-face interview. Went well and very positive feedback from the hiring manager, but it was followed by total silence from the company. Very disappointing.

    Tax Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Black Hills Corporation (Rapid City, SD) in February 2018.

    Interview

    It was horrible. The three interviewers expressions were obvious that I was not Caucasian. The fact that they did not have a third person on their team; they had no idea who would "fit." They never sent any letter informing me if I was even considered. I assumed not due to this fact. For a company that states they embrace diversity; they don't practice it unless you are pushing a mop!

    Interview Questions

    • Stupid questions that had nothing to do with the position. There was no way to showcase my knowledge.   2 Answers

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed 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 !

    Gas Operations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rapid City, SD
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Black Hills Corporation (Rapid City, SD) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online, the process took about 3 weeks. The initial interview used HireVu video, responding to written questions. The selected questions were somewhat 2nd interview in nature, so a few were difficult, and with further clarification I may have gained during a face to face, I would have answered differently. The medium is difficult if you use and value visual cues to feel at ease or develop report. I valued the experience, and the process was very professional. I appreciated that they let me know that I wasn’t selected to move forward.
