Note: NorthWestern Energy’s goal is to keep our employees, families and communities safe as the world endures the COVID-19 pandemic. For the foreseeable future, candidates who are selected for interviews will be able to participate virtually with video or phone.

On March 17, CEO Bob Rowe made an official emergency declaration and delegation due to the pandemic. Employees who can work from home are doing so, to help protect those who have to work from the office. We also closed our walk-in offices. NorthWestern has followed CDC guidelines to slow the spread of COVID-19. We ask all our staff to follow the three Ws: Wear a mask, Watch your distance, Wash your hands.
