    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Walter Industries (Birmingham, AL) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Conversational and task specific. Multiple interviews with various levels of the organization. Knowledgeable interviewers looking for specific skills and knowledge to become applied into the organization. Small group and Executive interviews as well as Department Leaders who understand the Safety function and are looking for someone who can relate to the mining community.
