Contura Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Contura Energy is a leading coal supplier with underground and surface coal mining complexes across Northern and Central Appalachia. Contura owns large coal basins in Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia which supply both metallurgical coal to produce steel and thermal coal to generate power.
Contura has a stressful and toxic working environment, there are unclear expectations and favoritism between staff, poor planning and no standards, according to a review by an actual employee at indeed.com
"Constant stress and no standards. Planning and experience suck. Favoritism to certain people. Expectations are unclear. Drama and gossip more important than task at hand."
Manager (Current Employee) says"Constant stress and no standards. Planning and experience sucks. Favoritism to certain people. Expectations unclear. Drama and gossip more important than task at hand.NoneEverything"
Coalminer (Former Employee) says"Management is young, inexperienced and has no clue on how to run a coal mine. Too many corners are getting cut to save money. And I mean safety issues. They would rather pay the fines and keep running than to fix problems and safety issues concerned.Benefits, uniforms, pay.Safety. Management, Human Resources, Management seems to be based on friends hiring friends."
Temp Foreman/ Miner Operator (Current Employee) says"They say they care untill they have to fork up money. They preach all this running right stuff but at the end of the day they want you to outlaw and if you get caught your fired. And as a miner operator your always in the dust!Stable jobManagement"
Senior Engineer (Current Employee) says"Lack of quality leadership. Company continues to struggle in maintaining normalcy for employees. Fails to evaluate employees. Does not provide a healthy working environment."
Coal miner (Former Employee) says"Worked for the company for about 12 years, was bought out and sold several times. Filed a couple accident reports and boom! Laid off. Truly do not care about their employees unless you like to kiss butt!"
Trainer/ Mine Rescue/Safety Compliance (Current Employee) says"To much buddy system!! Only awards for those that don’t rock the boat and just goes with flow even if it’s wrong!!! Micro managers throughout!! They are all bosses no leaders!! Management have their own special gigs going and don’t address issues cause it would bring light to what they are doing behind the scenes!!! All smoke and mirrors"
