Division Order Analyst (Former Employee), Bluefield, WVAugust 18, 2015
Pros: Bonuses, vacation time, sick days, benefits
I worked with the other employees at Consol Energy for 4 years. I spent more time with them than my real family. I enjoyed my job, even though it was stressful. I managed the suspense accounts, royalty – more... owners whose funds were suspended due to address hold, ssn hold, etc. I assisted with disbursement orders and supplemental orders from the Division of Oil and Gas Board.
I learned many things while employed at Consol, from the basic essentials to learning more about myself as a person, what I am capable of doing.
The hardest part of the job was sometimes we received rude and disrespectful phone calls from angry land owners and the worst part about the job was the day I was laid off. It was hard to leave my "family" – less

Company in transition that lost focus of its strengths and goals.
Foreman/Supervisor (Former Employee), Claysville, PAAugust 14, 2015
Pros: Training Emphasis, Financially rewarding with great supportive friends and co-workers
Cons: physical environment, hours
*Work day was long hours with many challenges.
*My best lesson learned was to stay committed to my values and goals
*Upper Mine management was constantly changing with their own different styles of leadership – more... and styles. Most of my immediate supervisors are excellent people who know the business well.
*My co-workers in general are all excellent workers and some of the best workforce in the coal business. They have done all that has been asked of them and they should be proud of their work performance over the years.
*The most difficult part of my job was the physical work environment, shift work and long hours (10 to 12 hours per day) It made it very difficult on the family situation for many of us.
*The best result was that I was able to provide my family with a better quality of life and education. – less

Stressful environment with little chance of ever reaching retirement.
Purchasing (Former Employee), CAPPAugust 8, 2015
Pros: Bonus program
Cons: Stressful, few advancement opportunities, little chance of reaching retirement, fewer benefits each year
Once job skills are obtained for your position, there is no room for advancement. Years of experience is not valued by management and slowly job satisfaction declines. One can expect their usefulness to the company to be over by the time the employee reaches 50. If you are looking for a company that you can retire with, this is not the company for you.

Drilling Engineer (Former Employee), Canonsburg, PAJuly 16, 2015
Pros: Schedule, co workers
Cons: Micro managing, no job security
Known for lay offs throughout their history. Poor management decisions such as: hired way too many people prior to planning to ramp up drilling in 2015. Then had to fire all the people because of poor – more... prices. Company may be going under or bought out soon.

Liked working on the rig and my co workers. Micro managing occurred often and sometimes we weren't allowed to do our jobs. Felt like a professional babysitter at some points. – less

Great people that deserve to be in Management, than who is in there currently
Meter Technician (Former Employee), Washington, PAJune 13, 2015
Pros: Great department personnel/
Cons: Management/ advancement/ stress level
High stress level/ you are a number, not a name with a family. I was fooled to think for years that this company would take care of there own. Lay-offs were prevalent in the mining side of the company, – more... but would try and place them some where with in the company. I was not even given the opportunity, they said my job had been terminated. I asked to be transferred, but the answer was no. This is the company I worked for, for 15 years.... Good luck – less

Great Summer Internship
Underground Miner/Intern (Former Employee), Naugatuck, WVMay 20, 2015
Pros: Great Pay, Great learning experience, rotational jobs
Cons: long hours sometimes
I started working at Consol when I was 18 at $14/hour in a coal preparation plant. I worked for the company for an additional 3 years and learned many many skills. Engineering interns receive a $4/hour raise every returning year. In my time at Consol I worked at a prep plant, surface mine, and 5 underground mines. It was a great job with great pay, and I learned a lot.
