    Je travaille chez Peabody à plein temps (Pendant plus de 5 ans)

    Avantages

    Great pay
    Paid time off
    Ability to advance if you apply yourself

    Inconvénients

    Very few understand the importance of field technology and big data. As much as I do enjoy mining, the deck is stacked against it; any competitive edge that can be gained from leveraging field data and translating that into efficiency seeems largely overlooked due to initial cost.

    There seems to also be very cliquish attitudes within the mines. Qualifications, attitude, and proven performance dont necessarily translate into a leadership role should one come open.

    Higher management also rarely comes out to the mine sites. This really gives employees the impression that we, a mining company, are not being led by people deeply involved in the culture.

    Conseils à la direction

    Look forward further than short term paybacks. While initial capital cost may be large, long term savings brought forth by higher accountability and higher efficiency will almost always win out. Also, be more open minded to the new mining technologies of today; while some claims may seem outlandish I believe that proper education is needed at a higher level on some options that exist.

    Interact with employees more often to help build rapport that is needed for employees to feel like more than just a number. Company wide emails and fliers arent the same as face to face encounters.

    Je travaille chez Peabody à plein temps (Pendant plus de 3 ans)

    Avantages

    The pay is decent despite the long hours. Sometimes have decent bonus.

    Inconvénients

    Long hours coupled with forced overtime. Yes genuinely forced overtime. People that call in on forced overtime shifts are being placed on corrective action and having their jobs threatened. Despite being incredibly short staffed. Bouncing around in equipment/ night shifts. General poor morale.

    Conseils à la direction

    Stop being so concerned with your production bonuses. I know it’s a dying industry but you’re still managing people, not robots. Treat your employees like people and your crazy turnover rate may decrease.

    Avantages

    Peabody has a talented workforce and gives you the opportunity to work on new and innovative projects. Company offers a competitive salary and generous time off package compared to other companies in area. Peabody places a strong importance on safety - whether in the corporate office environment or the operations. That makes you feel safe going to work each day. You get to work with a lot of great individuals who care about putting out a successful product. Members of the executive leadership team are very transparent and keep employees informed on business matters in a timely manner. You really get to touch many aspects of the business - even in a starting role. Company recently implemented pilot program of redistributed summer hours where employees may leave as early as noon on Fridays during the summer if work is completed. It was a great perk and helped with work-life balance. Work extra hours to get your work done Monday-Thursday and enjoy an afternoon off at the end of the week.

    Inconvénients

    Employees juggle quite a bit of work so if you aren't good with time management, you can feel as though you are continually behind.

    Conseils à la direction

    A course or training program on the coal industry for those new to the industry would be a great addition to the on-boarding process.
