    I have been working at Peabody full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits including very competitive compensation packages. These are the best people to work with and that includes the Executive Leadership Team. The CEO, Glenn Kellow, is very down-to-earth and communicative. We always know what's going on with the business which calms nerves in such a turbulent economy and during our Chapter 11 Bankruptcy. Peabody takes care of its employees!!

    Cons

    The only downside I can find is that the building is in downtown St. Louis - we have to pay for parking. But, seriously, that's the only downside.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work with communicating with your employees.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Peabody (Saint Louis, MO) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The entire process took about 1 month from application to start date. It started with an a phone interview with the recruiter. The phone screen was more informational about Peabody. Everything was communicated very well - including the Chapter 11 Bankruptcy. From there, I interviewed with the Manager of HR Systems, Manager of Employee Benefits and three of 5 Benefits Specialists. All interviews were similar in that most questions were behavioral based. Then, a second in-person interview with Director of Hire-to-Rehire, and the other two Benefits Specialists. Again, behavioral based interview.
