Mission: Our mission is to produce and deliver electricity as reliably, economically, and environmentally responsibly as possible to the balanced benefit of customers, shareholders, and employees and to improve the quality of life in the areas in which we do business.
We value the safety of our employees
Whether it's a safety message to start every meeting, ongoing tips, or monthly field meetings, we're actively engaged in safety. "Each one of us has people that think we're awesome," said Human Resources and Safety Director Pete Wasberg. "And we want our employees to go home safely to those people every day."
We give in our communities
We're proud to help make our communities even better places to live, work, and play. Earlier this year we delivered a donation to the Boys & Girls Club of the Perham Area. "A huge thank you for the support of our club and over 300 members in Perham!" said Perham Club Unit Director Cori Brown. "We wouldn't be able to do what we do without our generous partners."
We provide nearly $600,000 annually in charitable giving to organizations throughout our service area. We volunteer our time with countless organizations too.
We're proud to live our commitment to balance
It's important to use that we continue to be an electric utility that does the right thing. Our vision is growth and success for our company and the rural communities we serve. We collaborate and prosper through responsible, resourceful action. And we balance each decision we make with the impact it has on our family, friends, and neighbors.
"As employees, we live, work, and play in our communities," said Public Relations Supervisor Rebecca Michael. "We want them to thrive."
I worked at Otter Tail Power Company as an intern (Less than a year)
Great place to learn the ins and outs of the power utility.
Finding temporary housing in Fergus Falls, MN was a struggle.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Otter Tail Power Company (Fergus Falls, MN) in November 2014.
It was friendly. You talk to one person in the department and one person outside of it. They ask typical interviewing questions and really want you to be enthusiastic about the company. The other person interviewing me didn't seem to know much about the position I was applying for or the department, which was odd.
