I have been working at CONSOL Energy

Pros

Good pay good bonuses, the mine is young and there is alot of room to grow within the company. The company plans to hire a few hundred people by the end of the year. The company is very stable and keeps growing.

Cons

You work alot of hours and rotate shifts. It is dark and can be very cold in the winter. Not enough training for new hire bosses

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The training program for bosses needs to better we need to have more training on running equipment. we also need to start holding people accountable for their actions.

    Pros

    Exciting 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.

    Cons

    There 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 ManagementAdvice

    More freedom in scheduling.

    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.
