    Current Employee - Senior Geologist in Saint Louis, MO

    I have been working at Peabody Energy full-time for more than 5 years


    Excellent training opportunities provided when the company is successful, wonderful and talented co-workers, opportunities for travel, current president/next CEO (Glenn Kellow) is excellent and has the potential to turn the company around


    Limited advancement opportunities, technical salaries low compared to other mining companies, benefits are being reduced each year due to challenging industry conditions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Liten to your technical people and don't make expensive investments with little chance of profit, solely in the interest of "shareholder growth"

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 months - interviewed at Peabody Energy in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    Submitted application, took about a month to hear back. Set up an interview, then followed up with calls for a few weeks and then did a second interview 4 months after the initial application. More follow up calls for 2 months, then got a call on a Thursday wanting me to start the following Wednesday. All of this only to find out that the other people that filled the remaining positions didn't even interview and were just given the job.

    No negotiation.
