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
Topics regarding layoffs at Apache Corp.
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
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
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.
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!
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
Can we expect a continuation?
Sadly few colleagues were let go last week and this week.
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.

New pictures expensed and new bios are exactly what we should be focused on with our $9 stock.
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
Does anybody know what happened to FT? VP of Prod-Drilling
Is Christmann REALLY the right man for the job? Even he has to be shocked that he is still CEO.
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
If you are proud to work at Apache, you need to develop some self respect.
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
After listening to all the rhetoric from the "Hatchet" Man (CB) and Mr. Pumpice (ME) they first said no field employees would be affected. Now were hearing that all the pumpers in the field will be terminated and replaced with contract pumpers and... — read more
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!
From another thread Apache will, under current conditions, very soon be looking at an exhausted staff if it isn’t already. We’ve had years of talent walking out the door, promoting more to our manager ranks, laying off workers at the bottom, and... — read more
This is going to sound odd for some of you, but I want to say thank you to the Project Ascend Team and incompetent leadership throughout the company. If I was not laid off, I would have stayed on the sinking ship and went down without a life jacket... — read more
No rigs, but we have a new plane.
I realize I don't speak for everybody, but I would be the first to step back into the office if they would let me. I'll sign a waiver, I'll do whatever I have to do for the company to not feel liable for my safety. Working from home is a kind of... — read more
Let it out, guys. I will start: fire Christmann.
I was wondering if it’s only me feeling this way. Yes, I’m grateful I have a job. Surviving countless layoffs at Apa stresses me out. It’s that constant fear, sinking morale, overworking picking what others were doing, teams destroyed, less sense of... — read more
Praying to be premier
While this page seems to be a venting outlet I'd like to commend APA on the way they've handled this entire COVID pandemic. They could easily require us to be back in the field and office but have allowed us to work remotely for months (I realize... — read more
In the last 2 weeks field teams have been threatened twice by management to withhold or garnish out next years bonus for any driving violations, or if we are caught not wearing our masks in the office or while on location with other people. .. — read more
In virtual town-hall meeting It was mentioned executives’ pay cut, and the answer was that they took pay cuts because the stock price went down?
He ranks #8. I wish this would reflect company performance too. Probably APA not even top 50 of best performing companies and stocks. Make Apache Great Again hehehe
thought we were past that....
This company must have an A team of id–ts working around the clock on how to drive this once great company in the ground. We now have decided to not flare ever. No government mandate. We our doing it because we are now green. What stupidity with... — read more
