    Went through many iterations of management, the managment team when I left was very much into ensuring that work life balance was seen too. On the benefits side, healthcare/etc was good. But there were little other benefits being offered.


    Getting anything accomplished in a reasonable amount of time took some work. There is definitely some in fighting between the field and corporate teams. A great deal of individuals working in corporate did not understand that the money for the company was made from pulling coal out of the ground. This lead to friction.

    Really no upward mobility either.

    Advice to Management

    Send staff into the field more to get a better understanding of what is actually occurring at the mines and field locations.

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Peabody Energy (Gillette, WY) in January 2015.


    It was a fairly simple interview. They simply wanted to know more about me than what I could do. Like what I do for fun, goals in life. Safety is the # 1 goal of the company and you have to be a team player! With that being said if you have them traits and can run equipment then this interview will go easy and successful for you!
