I worked at Walter Industries full-time (More than 5 years)
I loved my time at Walter Energy. I was employed there for 7 years as an underground electrician. Work was dirty, hot during the summer and cold during the winter. I made a lot of good friends, and learned more than I can even remember. If they ever get back on their feet. I would highly recommend them.
Other than the fact that you are spending a good portion of your life underground, none really. The six days a week gets old, but the money makes up for it.
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you are doing, good times come and they go. The ground level management at #7 west is outstanding.
