Hi all, looking forwarding in making the move next week. I’ve heard that the cubicles at cenovus are on the small side? Can anyone confirm this? Can the same be said regards the washrooms? What floor has the larger washrooms? I found myself... — read more

Look forward to the upcoming toxic workplace review coming. This will involve current and former employee testimony. People have a right to know exactly what has been happening and has happened here. If nothing is wrong here then an inpendant review... — read more
Any ideas/rumors on what assets will be sold?
I hope Cenovus leadership is privy to the study Husky commissioned by HRG (High Reliability Group) a few years ago. They identified many structural problems within Husky, a few recommendations were carried out by Husky but many more went ignored. — read more
I agree, Husky has some fat to trim. How about we cut out "Personal Use Vehicles" and save a few dollars and jobs. That's right, Husky managers have unlimited use of company trucks. Unlimited mileage, gas and a new vehicle every 150000 km. Anyone... — read more
The time for honoring yourself will soon be at an end!
The positions ripe for outsourcing The employees who refuse to learn new skill The consummate slacker The employee who embarrasses his boss The person who costs too much The co-worker who doesn’t fit with office culture The... — read more
Make me laugh...
After 8 or 9 rounds of cuts... Assuming we've eliminated all folks with performance issues... Assuming we've eliminated all folks that were mediocre... Who are we cutting now?
I am preparing myself for another dumb announcement this week which will say what we’ve already been told. My bet we will be told layoffs are next week and that you sit at your computer and wait for a call on Teams or Skype. Which is a pretty sure... — read more
Am I off?
I was unable to dial into the Safety and Operations Tech Services townhall on Thursday. So, I just finished listening to the recorded townhall where John McKenzie (the COO) introduced himself. Jon seemed to introduce himself as the new CEO of the new... — read more
I was watching the town hall again and I believe it was Alex that mentioned that if a manager is no longer needed in their current role they may be given the option to take over another role that would have gone to one of their direct reports. So in... — read more
Im obviously with Husky and im trolling the boards to see if there is a DC and drafting department at Cenovus? I hope you dont so that you keep all of us. PS: we can get use to the small cubicles, we work hard but we dont know much, but willing to... — read more
So now we sit at home for the next two weeks “working” and waiting for the verdict and our future to be decided. No matter what they say this will not be merit based as fundamentally each group is given a budget and they have to cut people until... — read more
What a stupid announcement that was. Let’s get this straight, these people took that long to take the last announcement and repackage it into an excel format with literally no new information and sent it out today like it was some great insight into... — read more
Here I thought cubicles at Husky were tiny, your’s are ridiculously tiny.
Please explain what you mean by diversity and inclusion being used to decide who gets a role. If all things are equal will someone’s race or gender decide who gets the role. This might be controversial but I don’t understand what you mean by... — read more
Have they announced the leadership of the finance group yet (comptroller, directors, etc.)?
No parent in their right mind would ever ever tell their kids to go into oil and gas let alone at Cenovus. Non stop layoffs, eight or nine rounds here alone. You have a very warped view because no student would go into school right now with an aim of... — read more
Voluntary layofffs / packages is the dumbest thing a company could do. Great for those that go voluntarily (usually the smartest and brightest), but what is left are not the smartest or brightest and would not be able to find a job anywhere... — read more
So lots of promotions and lots of duplication. We need. SVP of safety, an EVP of safety, and then two VPs of safety, and of course a director safety. Great job Alex. That’s a lean and mean structure for sure. All of that in place of one VP of EH&S... — read more
Where's that guy who said this was a reverse takeover, I have a bridge to sell you.
HR: could you please provide the option to volunteer for a severance package. I will 100% take one if offered. I didn’t get a retention bonus and I’m senior enough and have a certain sought after skill set, so I have options at our peers... — read more
I just saw in CTV about employment law. Just in case we have some questions if we ever got laid off. https://stlawyers.ca https://www.severancepaycalculator.com Lost Your Job? Disability Denied? Discover Your... — read more
Is he gathering elsewhere with family while the rest of us spend Christmas hunkered at home worried if we’ll have jobs in the new year?
The only good thing about the merger is the LTI payout. It’s day 1 where’s the payout? Does anyone know when we get the LTI payout???
Cenovus is bad. It's bad for your health. So much stress and non stop layoffs. Sick
Question from a current Husky employee! Unsure if I will be with the new company in Calgary, but I am curious on the benefits and compensation at Cenovus, since eventually we will have to all be on the same system. Can anyone there provide some... — read more
Thanks for the great holiday gifts. The anxiety, sleeplessness, and job insecurity went great with the side of COVID. Much appreciated!!! I just finished reading to my children the classic tale of Mr Scrooge, especially relevant this year I thought... — read more
The great soon to retire SVP and his “Ending 2020 on a high note”. This SVP gets to retire with millions of dollars and a $600k retention bonus while the average employee is laid off (2,000+) into the worst job market ever. But hey at least the... — read more
Welcome to LKS as the new controlling shareholders (and soon majority owner).
I find myself having a hard time being positive about any work with these layoffs coming. Every time I see a post I just think, wow Al is smiling and telling us what a great safety job that we all did but we are still going to lay a whole bunch of... — read more
Why does cenovus feel it’s above the law? Alberta has mandated that only esential people are to be at the work place and we haven’t reduced any frontline workers on site. We were minimum staffed at the start of this pandemic, but we can’t... — read more
I’m trying to remember how many rounds of layoffs this company has been through now since the split from ECA. Including this one I think we are at 5. (Maybe it’s 6). It started in 2014, so I think we are averaging one major round per... — read more
I think there are only 10 guys on here stirring the pot everyday. Just go do your jobs and don’t create drama here. Everyone is stressed and worried, there’s way too much going on and every time one of you post something you’re affecting the mental... — read more
I’m not getting a retention bonus so put the pitch forks away. The lists are being made. Female managers are given priority for safety. It seems as if there is an effort to rid the new company of ethnic minorities, the go list is very... — read more
