If there's a reason to go out of my way and do anything but the bare minimum at Apache I can't find it. Initiative and hard work are only rewarded with more work and nothing else. No pay increases, no bonuses, no promotions, nothing. Mediocrity seems... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Apache Corp.
Are we certain nothing is happening before April?
After the layoff, I still haven't found a similar job. All my attempts to find a job in this industry again have failed, even though I sent out a lot of applications. I’m still not desperate because I have savings, but the money runs out... — read more
(Correcting prior post. Assuming this is what was meant.)
I joined. Did you?
I would love to be laid off because I’m really fed up with this company. I feel like I’ve been here too long and it’s only now that I see that I shouldn’t have stayed here that long, but changed several different companies instead. At this point... — read more
Someone I really respected was laid off and I can’t believe they did that to a man of such capacity. He immediately found a new job and there are no problems for him, but I still don’t understand the logic behind it. It's really become apparent they... — read more
It's been a little over a year since I left. I was tired of constant management through bullying, being overworked and underpaid, and having to navigate one of the most toxic work environments I've seen in my two-decades long career. I did like the... — read more
I have never been a part of a department that is so run down and discouraged as EHS is now. Until a year ago we were an incredibly motivated team. Now people hate their jobs and talk about leaving because JJ fires the good ones. If the president... — read more
How does a FINANCIAL magazine name Apache one of the “Most Admired Companies of 2020” when our stock is rated Junk?
Funny enough for the few jobs in Paris, HR doesn’t think anybody at Apa is good enough and need to hire from outside instead of internally.
Does it surprise anyone the Diversity is more important than safety! What a joke. So long as the 2 id–ts (C and J) are running the show and show elementary leadership abilities by not listening to the SMEs the company should remove all core values... — read more
So what's next?
Anyone want to give their projections on what's going to happen at Apache? Industry in general?
According to Glassdoor, current and former Apache employees give JC a 29% approval rating. Let. That. Sink. In.
I'd be happy to leave as some are suggesting but where can I go? I've been sending out my resume left and right for the past six months and I haven't even been able to land an interview yet. Where are these companies that are hiring? I can't find any... — read more
I still can't believe I've wasted two years of my life at Apache. Two years under a useless manager with no management or any other skills, two years in a toxic work environment, two years having to do two jobs for the pay of one. I finally got the... — read more
Apache’s executives have never been imaginative. They have always been distracted by shiny objects and trying to follow what some other company is doing without any understanding of whether the same works with Apache’s assets or skill-sets. They... — read more
When did this company go from a great place to work to a place most of the employees are looking to leave, one way or another? Asking for a friend.
A few readers here are probably aware the company intends to offload some Permian properties pretty soon. The list is already quite long and will likely grow. Unfortunately this means quite a few individuals will be shown the door. Again, Apache... — read more
To all my current and past Apache colleagues I hope 2021 is brighter and more prosperous for you than 2020. I also hope that Apache is bought or JC and his multiple layers of nepotised henchmen are canned. Here is to hope!
Can we expect a continuation?
Literally. With so many planners and such high quality HR staff, how in the world can they keep getting this wrong? Junk stock. Junk company.
Sadly few colleagues were let go last week and this week.
Let's just remember that JC gave one of those awards to SK, the master mind behind the AH scam. How many billions were wasted?
New pictures expensed and new bios are exactly what we should be focused on with our $9 stock.

Does anybody know what happened to FT? VP of Prod-Drilling
John Christmann, 2015 - 2019: Cumulative compensation: $72,500,000 Average annual compensation: $14,500,000 Apache, 2015 - 2019: Total shareholder returns: -54% Average annual free cash flow: -$442,600,000 Average return on capital... — read more
If you are proud to work at Apache, you need to develop some self respect.
Something's up. Everyone I speak to seems to feel it. Closed doors, distant and directionless management whose plans shift day to day. All of which, historically, has been an ill omen for all involved. Nothing is working, activity is low... — read more
The latest video from JC and "Thunder Dome" MM is riddled with holes. They speak of employees wanting a "hybrid work model" but no one I talk to wants to go back to the office in any capacity. Seriously, who wants to go back to spending an hour and a... — read more
Is Christmann REALLY the right man for the job? Even he has to be shocked that he is still CEO.
This is just par for the course, but is anyone remotely surprised that the brand new DIRECTOR of onshore healthy and safety just happens to be the hubby of our one and only VP of HR? The person with the second (or third) most hiring authority just... — read more
I think a permanent work from home program would go a LONG way. Those who want to go to the office can, but I already never want to put on stiff dress clothes to drive in bumper-to-bumper Houston traffic ever again.
It's Friday August 14th and Apache still s—s!
