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'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.

    Communications Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Otter Tail Power Company (Fergus Falls, MN) in November 2014.

    Interview

    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.
