    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at CONSOL Energy.

    Interview

    I applied online for the position. Salary requirement was one of the questions, which I answered. I was called in for an interview about a week later. Interview was awkward, not relaxed. I was told mostly negative things about the company. Only after the interview did I find out that the salary was only half of what my requirement was. This is very disrespectful. Why would you waste everyones time if the salary isn't even a close match? I obviously told them I'm not interested.
