    Former Employee - Human Resources Intern in Canonsburg, PA

    I worked at CONSOL Energy as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    From day one I was treated as just another employee and given responsibilities and assignments that both challenged me and gave me real-world experiences I could later talk about. Weather it be traveling to various meetings with the heads of the department or heading and helping complete projects, I never felt like "just another intern" while at Consol.

    Cons

    With any company that is in the coal business, some old fashion tenancies will be there. I personally didn't mind them but some would view as a "con"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up what you're doing.

    I worked at CONSOL Energy

    Pros

    Some of the best reasons to work at Consol are the benefits....they are the best. They also pay very well. Overall they are an excellent place to work. I was devastated when my husband was transferred.

    Cons

    THe only thing I found disturbing at Consol was thier policy when laying poeple off. People who had worked there for 20 or 30 years were called to the HR office and then escorted to thier desks with a box to get thier personal items and escorted out the door. They were not allowed to speak to anyone. They were treated as horrible hostile employees. A great lack of respect for people who had spent their entire careers there. That was the ONLY thing I didn't like about the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A layoff is devastating regardless of how it is done however, in the future please try and find a way to do it with a little more respect. People love working there and it is very sad not only for the people being layed off but also for the employees who see it ihappening. THere is no GOOD way to lay people off and I totally understand that it is an issue of safety but there must surely be a better way.
