    phone prescreen after I applied from central recruiting and then brought it to interview in Sparwood. It was booked early in the morning and no one was was there and I tried to introduce myself once they came in the building it was very ackward. Three people, not a great experience, can see why they have such a great relationship with the union. Instead of flying I drove to save them money and thenthey just ignored me on expenses. If you go make them pay for everything up front.
