I applied through other source and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Peabody Energy in May 2011.
Interview Details – Two phone interviews, one on site.
I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Peabody Energy in April 2011.
Interview Details – One of the interviewers asked the question "A user calls you and tells you a shared printer won't print, what steps would you take".
My response: " I would ask the user if anyone else could print to the printer. Then I would ping the printer. If I could hit it, I would get into the printer's gui and see if there was a hardware problem".
Interviewer's response "That answer is wrong, the printer was out of paper" (he laughs, and so does the rest of the interview panel).
"Wouldn't the gui typically say the printer was out of paper", was my response.
Then the interviewer made some other wise crack.
I said "Thanks for your time guys". And walked out of the interview. Some big wig chased me down towards the elevator asking what went wrong, but the elevator door shut in the middle of him talking. I chucked in the elevator.
I felt like I was in the middle of some type of prank. It was a waste of an hour and 3$ for parking. At least I got a free bottle of water.
I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Peabody Energy in October 2011.
Interview Details – through exec recruiter and then two rounds of interviews
I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Peabody Energy in May 2011.
Interview Details – Basic interview. Asked behavioral questions as well as technical.
Negotiation Details – Their offer was very good, so I did not need to negotiate. I think they would have been willing to negotiate if I had asked to.
I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Peabody Energy in October 2010.
Interview Details – It was unfair as they asked questions which were not relevant to the position, and then they said i did not have underground experience, but on the application they said it was not necessary
