No. They're over staff right now. The aptitude tests are basic, but require you to be attentive to detail.

I work there and they have been hiring. Starting pay is 16.05 then u have 3 evals to do after each one u get a dollar raise. Depending on the dept. After u 525 hrs I'n u will either be making 18.05 or 19.05. They are still testing and hiring. Good luck.

I know doesn't know shit.They are going to hire I know 15 more guys. You will start at 15.05 an hr for the first 175 hrs, then you get a dollar raise, to 16.05. Once you hit 350 hrs you move up to 17.05 an hour and after you complete your probationary time and get in the Union at 525 hrs you get 18.05 /hr. That is for production workers. Electricians, and Millwrights, and Operators make a dollar more on the hour.

The Aptitude Test these days are sufficient enough to weed out most people who are total idiots, although some do luck out and by guessing on the test seem to get through. They usually weed themselves out though within a few months.

They posted a bunch of jobs on Workforce WV website. Oh and FYI...I heard they do hair drug tests. So make sure you can pass a hair test.

Not accepting applications does not mean NOT HIRING. It means we have a pool of over 500 applicants already who have already submitted via the website and are choosing from those in the pool. SO, Once again, if you are in the pool, SWVA is hiring, and Dixie, you are right, you will take a hair sample drug screen if selected to move further in the hiring process.
Very interested

The furnace operators should be the highest paid group in the plant. Dunno why millwrights and the brick gang make more on the hour....

Most horrible place I ever worked (swv). The way they treat their employees is just..well.

Worked the melt shop for like wow, 15 yrs? or so. Until my on the job, life-changing, back injury. Then was 'shown the door' after bout 21 yrs total.
State of WV allows *self insured* companies to take care of their own claims. OMG.
Nothing but praise, until my injury. Then, the slander was just horrible.
Then, taking but 1 week off for dads death, had a super poke my chest repeatedly, hard, saying he'd wrote me up for every day I was off.
Human Services idiot said , "he knew why you were off, he was just messing with you" .
Nice huh !!
