    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Alpha Natural Resources.

    Once the application was reviewed I was contacted by phone by HR to set up an interview. I was interviewed two weeks after the call. It was another two months before I was contacted again to go for my physical and drug screening. After those were completed I had to initially go through a contractor, then after about a month I was hired on by the company.

Shortly after the interview they will contact you if they are interested. From there you will have to go through two weeks of training.
