Have you tried down around Harrisburg and that area. I don't know exactly where you live but my husband is in the same boat as u. He has spend so much time and we have wasted so much gas driving to these places and so far no luck. Even though the companies say they are hiring. Just to name a few companies you could contact yourself and see what they tell you before driving out there first like we did: Peabody, American Coal, Knight Hawk, oh and there is this job fair for coal miners in Marion on Monday Jan 24th from 8am to 8:30am at the Quality Inn. Hope this helps.

You guys can try a place in Harrisburg called David Stanley Consultants. They will get you a job and you do your 90 day period and then you get hired onto the company.

I'd avoid Custom Staffing like the plague that they are! I worked for Peabody through them for over 6 months, never missing a day. I originally worked at the Peabody knox pit in Bicknell, IN until it closed down, then was transferred Somerville Central near Mackey, IN. Well, shortly after I was hired I had some serious medical issues that caused me to miss 6 days of work, all with a dr.'s excuse and I called in Several hrs before my shift, so I did everything by the book. Long story short, they pulled me off the job and then denied unemployment. On top of that, I've had several jobs "in the bag", until they called for work reference, then they suddenly changed their mind. So, Custom Staffing is also giving me a bad reference for no reason and I've now been scraping by for 1 whole year. Working for custom staffing is career suicide!!! Oh, forgot to mention that not once was I offered a full time position, and worked harder than most of the others on the jobsites. AVOID THEM AT ALL COSTS!!!

Do you know of any houses for rent around there or in Equality? My son worked at Air Quality Mine in Vincennes, Indiana which has been closed. He was transfered to Wildcat Hills and is expected to go there on October 15th. He will be needing housing and I dont know where to start. Any suggestions?
