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


    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!!


    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.

    Human Resources Employee Benefits Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Saint Louis, MO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


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


    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.
