I have been working at Cloud Peak Energy full-time (Less than a year)
Benefits are out of this world, and the pay rate is quite high for starting electricians. Local company that is probably the most stable energy company that operates out of the Powder River Basin, great safety structure.
Management of the electrical department at the Antelope Mine location are totally abusive of their authority, and interpret company policies regarding holidays and vacation time totally backwards. Coworkers couldn't be more vulgar. I've worked in some rough places with some rough people, but this place takes the cake. Verbal harassment is quite common, and jokes of sexual nature. I highly don't recommend working in this environment if you are a woman. It doesn't matter how thick-skinned you are. Management never has enough for us to do, making the 12 hour shifts go by slow, S-L-O-W, and we're overstaffed, and still hiring. Unfortunately, because the management is abusive, the people who work here tend to dislike the management, bringing down the moral, and work ethic of the entire department. It's rather sad, because this place could be awesome. The pay and benefits are awesome, but the work environment is not. If you get a job here, get used to vulgar speech, (quite a but more than old fashioned cowboy cussing, believe me) and slow days, with not enough work.
Advice to Management
Take a look at the professionalism of the mine sites. I know that the town office is extremely professional, but the mine sites are not. More accountability needs to be enforced over the planners and supervisors, especially in the maintenance departments, so that the overall moral of the place can increase. There are people here who abuse their authority, and because of that, the laborers are not happy campers, and don't do their best.
