Material Handler (Current Employee) – Hayden, CO – June 13, 2017
Peabody Energy has been a great place to work and wonderful place to learn new talents and skill sets. I believe these new skill sets will help improve my five years experience in the oil field to make me a great asset to your company.
Peabody was a great place to work for me. They took good care of me and my family for over 32 years.
Heavy Equipment Maintenance Trainer (Former Employee) – Peabody Training Center Gillette Wyo. – May 14, 2017
When I transferred to this position, Peabody had just started their training center. My assignment was to launch, develop and implement a maintenance training program designed to make our technicians more efficient at troubleshooting and repairing our mining equipment, to increase equipment availability and lower maintenance cost, while at the same time reducing lost time accidents and equipment damage.
I learned to maintain and repair heavy equipment and more importantly how convey this information to others.
Management was mostly good.
Hardest part of the job was to learn to use computers and electronic equipment. Also passing the MSHA electrical certification test.
The most enjoyable part was passing my knowledge and experience on to the younger generation and knowing how much it will help them and the company.
Stable job with good benefits for over 32 years, doing what I love to do and getting paid well for it. Also getting to know so many quality people.
Getting laid off was bad, but Peabody gave me a good package, and it gave me the opportunity to start my own business, doing what I love, long drive each day to NARM.
Working for Peabody Energy, I actually loved the job. I enjoyed working for that company.
Coal Miner (Former Employee) – Dugger, IN – May 14, 2017
When I would arrive at work at the Peabody Energy, I thought that it was very easy. Also, it was tiring toward the end of the, but I still loved every bit of it. Something that I learned about working for Peabody was the operating equipment and the maintenance. The management was very understanding about certain things. The workplace culture was fun and interactive. Finally, the most enjoyable part of the job was driving the equipment.

Various experience at 5+ operations. Overall experience is determined by the mine management. Some managers are very professional and have great leadership skills. Other managers seem to get by with as little as possible.

Senior Project Engineer (Current Employee) – Gillette, WY, St. Louis, MOt. – March 16, 2017
Peabody Energy has been an exceptional employer. My work experience over a 27 year career in civil/construction engineer has provided me with a "hands on" education which I will be able to carry forward into my next career.
The hardest part of the job were all of the personal sacrifices which I had to make along my career journey. The most enjoyable part of my job was to see our mining clients satisfied with the work which I performed for them.
Peabody is a wonderful company to work for. The benefits outstanding the pay and time off the best I've had. At NARM the employye/vendor count the same as a medium sized town and the fact of being a "number" and not looked upon as an individual had it's draw backs. Career advancement outstanding and witnessed move up the corporate ladder.
Its a very productive mine operation, bout 1200 employees, It's a very safe open pit operations, the coal is roughly 250 feet below the surface two to three benches and then what we call a cast bench drilled 190 feet or so to the top of coal , not all areas are these depts they vary. I like my job I drill on the cast with the New prototype atlas copco viper 316 drill. I Love this drill.
Good pay and built up my vacation
Drilling coal is a dirty job its shared with others so it's not all one operator
Senior Coordinator (Former Employee) – Oak Creek, CO – September 14, 2016
I enjoyed the variety of my job responsibilities and was able to work with intelligent people who have worked there for 20+ years. The hardest yet most enjoyable part of my job was learning database work and dealing with MSHA.
Moving the Longwall put a lot of stress on people I managed
