    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Black Hills Corporation (United States) in Jul 2020

    Interview

    I received an e-mail from HR stating that I was selected for a video interview. Completed the interview and a week later received an e-mail stating that I made it to the next step, and needed to complete a safety assessment. I completed the safety assessment almost a month ago and have not heard a thing. I e-mailed HR last week and still have not heard anything back. It would be nice to at least know that the job was offered to someone else and to pack sand.
