Negative Outlook

I have been working at Alpha Natural Resources full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

You can get away with not doing anything, really. At least at the union operation. LMM. Great benefits, good chance to advance.

Cons

You have to do the job of all those people who get away with not doing anything. No 401k offered, only a union pension, which is unacheivable, since it takes 10 years to earn it and there are only 3 years of life left at the mine. Low pay as compared to other mines.

Advice to Management

talk to each other. stop trying to screw the other shifts.

    Pros

    Employee safety is key at Alpha. Employees are treated with respect and gratitude for the job they perform.

    Cons

    I think all jobs should be posted and everyone should be interviewed out of fairness for all instead of appointing some and posting others.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the same level of safety and you'll thrive.
