Engineer Intern (Former Employee) –  Gillette, WYJuly 24, 2017
The company treats their employers like royalty. Black Hills Corporation puts safety at the highest priority which makes it one of the leading companies in the power industry. Highly recommended company to work for.

If you like politics, you will love this place
Manager (Former Employee) –  Western United StatesJuly 7, 2017
Great benefits but not the place for those who hate office politics. Advancement based on who you know, whom you please and a willingness to not challenge authority (even when they are wrong).
Pros
Benefits, Retirment
Cons
Horrible choices in state leaders, disengaged HR

Sr. E&P Production Data Technician (Former Employee) –  Denver, COMay 20, 2017
No room for advancement. I would see people in the same positions for years. Parking is based on seniority and I had a disability and was given a spot miles away from the building. It was very difficult during the winter for me and the snow.

Electrician (Former Employee) –  Wyodak MineMay 3, 2017
This place is not to be confused with other Black Hills properties, if you are looking for meaningful work look elsewhere, The Mine is small, and if you are not in the already established clique, your advancement is impossible. Doing Electrical work here is frustrating to say the least, Management has no respect for Electricians. They also play favorites, it is a good old boys network.
Pros
Laid back, atmosphere
Cons
Pay is not on par with other Black Hills units. No organization

Sales and Customer Care Representative (Former Employee) –  Fayetteville, ARNovember 11, 2016
The company does not hire you direct and the turn over rate was very high. It feel more like a boot camp than a job for adults. Even a pregnant woman was given point for having to go to the bathroom.
Pros
none.

Security Operations Officer (Current Employee) –  Rapid City, SDSeptember 26, 2015
can be stressful, but overall it is a pretty easy job. Lots of note taking required and talking on the phones.
I like the extra computer experience. Overall though, I only work one day a week. So it is nice. I work on a not so busy day, where I sit and monitor cameras all day.

Do not work here
Line department (Current Employee) –  PuebloSeptember 23, 2015
This company is very good at out sourcing. They have laid off quite a few positions. Management feels you owe them your life if you work here. Journeyman lineman are treated horrible. This place is very unethical in helping and maintaining good work culture and morale. Attitudes will always effect safety and production. Way better jobs out there.. Compensation is lower than most. Employees are just a number.
Pros
Good group of employees who have been here awhile
Cons
Management, compensation, morale, ethics, and team effort on employee and management.
