Mission: Tri-State's mission is to provide our member systems a reliable, cost-based supply of electricity while maintaining a sound financial position through effective utilization of human, capital and physical resources in accordance with cooperative principles.
I have been working at Tri-State Generation and Transmission full-time (More than a year)
Many opportunities to travel to other Tri-State facilities. They dont "skimp" on the fringe benefits; catered meals, ergonomics, technology, etc.
Many decisions are made to be politically correct instead of what's best for the company/members. Seems that there is a "good ole' boy" attitude and that sometimes hinders forward movement. The culture sometimes feels like Tri-State COMPETES with neighboring entities instead of working with them to ensure reliability of the Bulk Electric System.
Advice to Management
Don't shoot down ideas until you fully understand the proposed idea.
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Tri-State Generation and Transmission in May 2016.
Two phone interviews, Two in person interviews, very quick process. Applied online, heard from HR within 2 weeks, then had a series of phone interviews. This is a very specific position so they were looking for key personality traits.
