    I worked at Black Hills Power as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    As an engineering student on an eight month co-op, I was treated as an equal to the engineering staff. It was a great way to get an idea of what working for a utility would be like after graduation. The tasks assigned were not ‘busy-work’, but real issues that needed engineering assistance to be remedy the problem.

    Cons

    Projects may seem limited, but you are working with an 8-month window as a co-op student, so that is expected.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Black Hills Power (Hot Springs, SD) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Good overall interview, they paid for my mileage and food. But what I thought was a unfair was their selection process, only peiple from the area were interveiwed, and the person selected for the position had connections with in the company. I have lost a lot of respect for this utility company and in the future will look else ware for a job. YOU BETTER HAVE CONNECTIONS IN ORDER TO GET HIRED BY THIS COMPANY, they dont care how much you know and work ethic. You better be buddy-buddy with some one up their food chain.
