    I worked at NorthWestern Energy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people are great if you work in good department. Money is great starts low but increases quickly and the benefits are pretty awesome too

    Cons

    You may have supervisor that is not easy to work with. No freedom to be creative. Wages start out low. If you don't have a degree you probably will never work there

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Huron, SD
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at NorthWestern Energy (Huron, SD).

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

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