    Average Interview

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Arch Coal (Lexington-Fayette, KY) in Oct 2019


    Easy process, simple questions every interviewer asks. Very pleasant people! I was welcomed into their facility and even given a mine tour. I would recommend applying, this company takes good care of their employees and the employees' livelihoods.

    What is your interest in mining? What brought you into this field?
