    Coal production foreman

    Production Foreman (Former Employee)
    Dallas, WV

    ProsGreat pay benefits, like salary overtime and retirement medical benefits. Long term and short term incentive programs. Safety oriented company.

    ConsIncreasingly lacking medical benefits, and schedule is not what was promised.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Place to Work Overall

    Coal Miner (Current Employee)
    Oakwood, VA

    ProsGood pay, quarterly bonus, health, dental, vision, 401k, life insurance, supplemental insurance

    Conslayoffs and/or hours cut without warning, no Christmas bonus, preferential treatment given to relatives and friends of upper management, no merit raises (raises are given across the board annually to good employees as well as bad-no incentive to perform well)

    Advice to Senior ManagementImprove communication between upper management and mining staff. Acknowledge the extra effort of good employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Initial excitement, actual disappointment.

    Operations Analyst (Current Employee)
    Canonsburg, PA

    ProsExciting industry to be in. CONSOL is a leader in safety, and I truly believe that, from the top down, we want to do it the right way. Many opportunities to learn.

    ConsThere is an attitude that just because the people in the mines work long days everyone else should. Sorry I am not a coal miner. I support them and do my job, but I do not need to do their job too.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore freedom in scheduling.

    good place to work with a goo looking future

    Electrician (Current Employee)

    Prosconsol has been around for many years and looks to be for many more they seem to care about your personal saftey as well as trying to make things right with the enviorment

    Consthe management at some locations need to get a better handle on day to day operations and the way things are ran the place i work at could run much more effecentily as far as saftey,compliance,production and cost if the management team would care about the life of this location it all starts at the top and goes down to the men and women working there

    Advice to Senior Managementhave the management team get a backbone stop letting things go just so they don't make waves take there job and responsablity seriously start working together instead of against each other

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
