ITS A SHAME THAT AS CITIZENS OF PIKE COUNTY, WE CANT GET A JOB AT EQT. I HEAR THAT MOST EMPLOYEES THERE ARE FROM OTHER COUNTIES. SO I GUESS WHEN THEY BUILD THE SO-CALLED NEW HEADQUARTERS AND HIRE 100 PEOPLE, IT WONT DO THIS COUNTIES PEOPLE ANY GOOD, WELL THAT IS UNLESS YOU ARE RELATED TO THE BOSS OR SUPERVISORS. IM SO TIRED OF PUTTING IN APPLICATIONS OVER THERE AND NEVER GETTING CALLED FOR AN INTERVIEW, THE WAY I HEAR IT, THEY ALREADY KNOW WHO THEY ARE GOING TO HIRE BEFORE AN INTERVIEW IS SET UP. I TALKED TO THIS ONE MAN WHO APPLIED FOR THE SAME POSITION I DID, AND HE ALREADY KNEW HE HAD THE JOB BEFORE THE POST WAS TAKEN OFF THE WEB. SOME SYSTEM WE HAVE, ITS NOT FAIR, BUT THEN AGAIN WHAT IS?
SHAME ON YOU EQT

Pike Co. is waking up. I hope that the elected officials in this county can open their eyes and see this also. There's no way in God's green earth that this company can hire that number of people in that time frame. First they are suppose to maintain the current workforce and that has already been reduced by 12 or 15 employees. Second, and you are right they will bring people from within the company to this area. Third, what employees they are hiring are from Va. and Letcher Co. The contract will probably be null and void once they sale. To be announced soon.

They are nothing but smooth talking crooks.They destroy peoples land,they destroy your timber your land ,your water and leave you to pay taxes on it.Obama and the tree huggers should look at their practices.People in pike county wake up!!!!!!!!!!Their drilling horizonal wells going 7000 feet or more.Do you know how far that would go thru our mountains,probably getting your gas and you don't even know it.I'm sick of them and their ways.They do what they want and leave you with broken promises........

They are a lot of Pike County workers employed by EQT me included. I'm a lifelong resident of Pike County and I'm blessed to have my job. We are a large company with gas wells all over eastern Kentucky. We have to hire people from all over to work. If they just hired Pike County residents some would have to drive 2 hours or more to get to work so they would have to leave before 5 am and not get home til 7 pm. EQT is a great company that is doing good things for Pike County and I can say proudly that I'm a hard working employee from Pike County and glad that I have a great job. ALso if you go to Wal Mart or the Hospital or any other job around all the workers are not from Pike County.
yea

Agree that workers have to come from other counties, but let those counties pitch in on the tax incentives or Va pitch in. What do the pricks from Pittsburg say. "WE ARE CREATING JOBS FOR PIKE COUNTIANS" When you have a company that lies to their employees and to landowners, then I do not call that a good company. I've seen how upper management from Pittsburg treats our people. They think we are nothing but some poor like hicks that they can spend a little money and be tickled to death. They will talk about you good to your face, but then their true thoughts come out behind your back. EQT CAN NOT BE TRUSTED. BOTTOM LINE>

More importantly.........EQT hires Contractors to do most of the work and developement. Those outside contractors are the places you need to look for jobs. The unfortunate thing is EQT doesn't monitor those contractors close enought, they should ensure they are qualified and pay their bills in a timely manner! There are far more jobs created by their contractors than with EQT directly! If you look at it from that stand point you can see why EQT doesn't hire Local, personal relationships with local companies and company men are never a good idea in any industry, especially in eastern Kentucky!

You hit it on the nail head. There was a much to do about nothing. They claimed ALL this stuff on an individual and to my knowledge ALL was lies and hear say. There was 2 or 3 disgruntled employees that did not get their way and they got together and fabricated these lies and maybe a few little minor policy infractions. You take that with low life's in Pittsburg that did not like things run in a good moral, safe and right way. Then they can push you and anyone else on out the door. That is the EQT way.

AND ANOTHER THING, everybody in south eastern Kentucky should be able get natural gas from their lines. Also, this natural gas should be at a very low rate. After all, it's our land and water that is being destroyed.

Power too the people.

I always wondered why I would see a EQT truck sitting outside my house all the time. I found out that they are robbing internet service from me. Management have told them to find places with wireless signal so they can do their business. Pike Co. wake-up. EQT is robbing us of everything we have. Our beautiful land, clean water, gas, livelihood and now our internet service. If you see one of those EQT trucks parked outside your home or business call the police and report them. It's illegal to tab in to your service like that.

I Agree all they are is smooth talking A-Holes taking advantage of the older propety owners in our communites and doing what they want (screwing up our land and property) and raping our country to ship the Shi_ oversees and tax and cost a butt load of money and when it's all gone they will be too. I just wish someone would shoo_ these A- holes when they step a foot on there property.......
