Chaparral Energy Layoffs

Topics regarding layoffs at Chaparral Energy

It’s going down!!

Even the rats have began to abandon ship. It’s time to grab a lifeboat and protect yourself. The frog can swim his way out. Make no mistake this ship is going down.


I have spoken to several vendors who have not been paid from the Mighty Chaparral in 4 to 6 months! The entire company and every management person is a complete joke!!! But as the old saying goes “what comes around goes around!”

Some posts have been deleted here. I guess I’m one of the misfits that was laid off. The company you work for is a complete joke. You think 2019 will be a banner year? Great start lowest stock price in the history of going public, borrowing money... read more

Bankruptcy Ahoy!

Well once again Stackarral is poised to go bankrupt! Wow the amount of foolish decisions made here is unmatched by even the most mo--nic fool! Let’s see, Chaparral once a great company to work for has now become an industry joke. The leadership at... read more

Chaparral is a now a good takeover candidate

Looks like a potential takeover candidate if someone moves quickly...especially before they get into debt up to their eyeballs again. At a market cap of 360 million and long term bond debt of +/- 300 million, the assets could be accretive for a... read more

How low will it go?

16 consecutive days when Chap stock price hit a new 52 week low. From 25+ to 7 in one year. WOW! How low will this go?

Buh bye Chapaa

Well sold off panhandle assets to further fill everyone investing with c-ap they are looking to see if money in the other hand fills faster then the c-ap we all know how that will end

Encore Performance

Over 2 years ago, we handed down to CHAP a sentence of BANKRUPTCY. Why ? The fact of the matter is it was feckless leadership that was marching to the same cadence as a parade of fools. Drowning in ever increasing debt, BANKRUPTCY came and went with... read more

Stock free fall

Can anyone explain the free falling stock value? The frog is just a frog. He is not a prince. So if you kiss the frog, he won't turn into a prince. Sure you might get promoted but most likely, you're just gonna grow a wart.

Cheap CEO!

Explain how during bankruptcy they have better raises than now?? What a cheap a$$ of a CEO... clearly he doesn’t care to try and retain talent.


I have been directly affected by Chaparral's operations, and this Perdure thing has got me very worried. If Perdure is actually rehashed Stackarral management, it signals a status quo for me or worse moneywise. Anyone know the name of the Perdure... read more

Chaparral's Core Values

So, I guess all pretenses are out the window. Forget about integrity and relationships. Straight from the Frog's mouth. Good thing EOR is gone so we can really "grow shareholder value." Never mind the ones actually doing all the work have no... read more

Buyer Beware!!

So do you "Geys" "ers" really believe that everyone deleted their videos and pictures?! Not to mention many field hands and drivers H(ave) 2 S(ay) that things aren't all that safe out here! You want to kill someone before it comes out?

Core values

This should be fun. Write a sentence using the following words: "integrity","relationships","results","technical excellence"

Yesterday a manager, today a director!

Upper management just keeps promoting themselves, changing their pointless titles over and over again and reorganize the depts. Yesterday a manager, today a director, It just seems pointless, no one cares. But all the real workers, the ones that... read more

Sh*tter was full!

And it stinks on the forth floor! The incompetence of Stackarral mgmt is bewildering! They promote the idiots and guys who waste millions of dollars, keep reorganizing, changing titles, moving the same few “golden boys” up the chain while the rest of... read more

Thread missing

There was a post here earlier, I don't see it anymore. Who is deleting this?

More layoffs incoming at Chaparral

Anyone left shouldn’t be fooled, more layoffs will happen. Now that EOR is gone, they don’t need all those in accounting, IT and safety. They will continue to sell off more assets. If you’re not in that inner circle of a--kissers, better kiss your... read more

If you have any other job prospects, GO NOW!

Things are happening that aren't good. Idk if it's better to hope for a good severance package or just find another job now. After coming out of bankruptcy I doubt they will be generous. The top people will golden parachute out of course!

EOR SALE- layoffs

Man oh man, good luck to everyone at Chaparral. Layoffs again Too many people not enough assets Stack stack stack And don’t forget about the core values

Bond Holders? Company owners? Who are we?

So Mark is out. Earl is more than likely on his way out. If it were me being the equity holder a major and I do mean major change of guard in the managerial department would be in the works. Who do we actually work for now and will we be informed on... read more

Jet Lag?

Why would a plane ride be necessary from OKC to Weatherford for a meeting with field personnel? Wonder what the price tag for fuel was on that 6 minute flight? No one have drivers licenses? There has to be 10 pool cars setting here ready to go. And... read more

CCMP out?

I hear CCMP left and has turned their part over to the bond holders? Probably a smart move.

Loyal guys let go....

I'm confused as to why some hard working, loyal employees were Layed off but others took their positions? Also, why are people getting a bonus, not to mention some getting raises? This sounds like politics to me. Someone wanted to have more control... read more


So no one wants to talk about the nice sugar coating that it is good to skip a loan payment on a billion dollar loan? Tick tick tick....

Who is that creep

With an office on the north end of the building that watches people arrive in the morning with a monocular?
