    Pros

    Minimal heavy lifting and added overtime

    Pros

    Good company to work for. Great benefits, plenty of overtime. If you like doing a dirty job and staying active, this is a good place

    Cons

    A lot of the lower level management seems to think they know a lot more than they actually do

    Advice to Management

    Upper level management needs to look into their supervisors more and keep them in line. Seems like the wort hourly workers are the ones getting promoted to salary/management

    I worked at Drummond Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    First rate company doing first class work. Had long term commitment to offer high end product, and delivered during my time with company.

    Cons

    Nothing to mention, other than bringing a top quality product to an area that typically searched for something of more "reasonable" means.

    Advice to Management

    Whatever the climate with real estate sales, continue to stay the course in providing the very best lifestyle possible!

    Pros

    Great company, great management. Great incentives and benefits. Drummond is currently making the current staff live in fear of layoffs. Otherwise a great company.

    Cons

    Uncertainty of the future due to coal market. Need to diversify is paramount. Changing to more of a gas company is important for a sustainable future.

    Advice to Management

    Push to diversify assets to prepare for future.

    I have been working at Drummond Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Overall a good company to work for, caring and understanding bosses. Flexible Work Schedule.

    Cons

    Due to Coal Prices Projects are on hold, and CAPEX is non existent and so necessary and needed equipment upgrades are put off until they fail.

    Pros

    Overall Drummond Co. treats their employees fairly. There is no complaints about the Co. itself.
    They try to keep their employees especially their salaried. The pay is adequate and fair.

    Cons

    The upper management at the mine itself tries to micro manage every aspect of the jobs. Especially the mine manager who has not worked underground and tries to run other departments that he is not directly over.

    Advice to Management

    Be more people oriented and stop treating people as though you are superior to them. Allow people the oportunity to prove their worth to the company.

    Drummond is a great company to work for and has always given me opportunities for improvement both personally and professionally. The company takes care of its employees.

    I worked at Drummond Company full-time

    Pros

    Gave great information on how to close the deal via sales dvds.

    Cons

    I think they would better serve the new employee (and themselves) if they allowed a couple of weeks "shadowing" a successful salesperson.

    Advice to Management

    After having the dvds on how to make the sale, have a successful salesperson mentor them and possibly shadow them for a couple of weeks to see how to overcome hurdles.
