I have been working at Walter Industries full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

The best safety program ever. From top management down to front lines. They are serious about safety. Money and benefits are good. Management setting up mines to be power house in market to come. Well run. Security in job.

Cons

A lot of hours worked. Coal mines have a certain amount of danger.

Advice to Management

Doing a good job but a little Top Heavy!

    I worked at Walter Industries full-time

    Pros

    Very supportive (IT) management.
    All staff that I worked with (either US or Canada) were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.

    Cons

    There were some internal 'power struggles' (at head office) but they didn't impact me or my co-workers in Canada.
    Unfortunately, coal prices kept dropping so eventually WLT filed for chapter 11

    Pros

    gems of Western Coal were an awesome team who slogged thru the messy takeover
    Walter Energy bought the best and worst of Western Coal
    Once coal comes back in market, excellent business opportunities are waiting here!
    Senior management put some efforts forward

    Cons

    fall out between countries made it difficult to excel when takeover was completed from Western to Walter.
    KC took his key personnel and left the balance of the team to fend for themselves

    Advice to Management

    provide better HR support
