Will the new process be fair to employees or will it be used against employees as the old process was? Members of management used the old process to promote favorites who did not know the work. Those same managers used the process to penalize and... read more

Train 3 at the Gorgon LNG facility has been temporarily shut down due to mechanical issues which might be related to a prolonged heat wave in Australia. Asian LNG prices hit an 8 month low last week and this shutdown is expected to slightly raise the... read more
Petroleum will be around for some time yet, but I agree one should not assume it will be a growth industry too much forward. Alternative technology is getting better, new tech like fusion has a real possibility of being very disruptive, and the real... read more
Today, I cried. I have been with Chevron nearly 15 years. I am a single woman living in [location deleted by moderator] putting in all of my dues following all the rules and building all the experience I am told I need to be the HES Sponsor... read more
The price is $50.75/barrel as I write this. Whoopie! You don't have to turn in that job application to Denny's. Just sit tight and don't panic - you could stay employed for all of this year.
I want to remind people to use the hotline to report any bullying or intimidation, especially by a supervisor. Chevron takes that very seriously and depending on the PSG involved will send independent investigators. It is all anonymous and there are... read more
Most expats sent to Angola and other places are not top tier employees. How long are you guys going to take to learn that? The majority of the people bragging about these high dollar cushy ( for the pay vs the amount of work done) assignments are... read more
What is going on with Chevron in Angola? I had a good friend in Houston that repatriated from Angola in mid 2017 only to find out that nobody wanted him back in Houston and he was forced out (with a severance). Is this a common issue? He wanted to... read more
Crude oil prices have had a very good increase in price because of announced crude oil production cuts of 1.2 mbd by Saudi Arabia and its fellow OPEC members and alliances, mainly Russia. Even though crude oil production in the United States has... read more
Who are you? I'm honestly curious, who are the people who have made sure Chevron ends up on Glassdoor's 2019 Best Places to Work list? Is this some kind of a joke? Do we even work at the same company?... read more
The entire US healthcare system— doctors, hospitals, d--g manufacturers and the insurance companies are all complicit with the government. We live in a country where our very health is used as a ransom to enrich the medical, pharmaceutical and... read more
Maybe not a topic that is that would be interesting to many on this board but I had the feeling that I should post this. I find it sad that after 80 years of tradition, small Service and Gas stations that were oriented towards satisfying the... read more
Whats happening in the ABU? Seems like the thread is always deleted.
Nice to see the bigoted, bullying and hateful people at Chevron who think they can victimize and persecute people for being different sweating low oil prices at this time of year. Goes around comes around. Merry Christmas!
Management will gut ETC in the new year. Don’t expect it to be quick or efficient. Many empires to fall.
Oil futures for WTI are now down $1.51 to $48.37. 2019 may not be a good year for the oil patch, at least for all of you office workers.
If you extrapolate the idea that older employees (40s or 50s depending on your personal opinion), then why would anyone ever get a college degree? You get a STEM degree because you believe it will make your career. Once you realize that a career is... read more
I understand that if one can structure ones finances appropriately, it is possible to have very low reportable income once no longer working. Has anyone who retired from Chevron before age 60 been able to get their reportable income low enough to... read more
Not sure why ETC has much higher PSGs than BUs. Some of the first level supervisors have 26,27 PSGs comparing to 24,25 in BUs, and it is so easy to get to 24,25 PSGs for individual contributors. Clearly they understand how to justify the impacts and... read more
It has always had its share of trolls, snowflakes and snowflake killers, but The Layoff.com (Chevron) used to be a fairly lively source of information about the company, if nothing more than for entertainment value. Now days, it just seems to be... read more
For naysayers and whiners - Chevron is among the best places to work for on Glassdoor once again this year despite all the detractors. Employees have spoken, loud and clear. We are where we belong... read more
According to this article Chevron, along with its peer Exxon, is planning to sell its stake in Azerbaijan’s largest oilfield, ending a 25 long presence there. The official statement that the company wants to focus more on domestic production, but I... read more
Do we have any updates on this, I know it's a sensitive topic and that I'll get a ton of "You are starting rumors again" but wanted to ask nonetheless. I am not claiming the move will happen and I claim no insider knowledge on the topic - I am merely... read more
Chevron has destroyed my career. Laid me off without a thought. One day I hope before I depart from this world I will see then destroyed like many of the other giant oil companies like AMOCo etc. No consideration for ppl
What has been your experience with getting medication through this corporate supported company? Personal experience from two 30+ year retirees - rating is 0.5 of 5 with 5 being highest. Arbitrary cancellation of pr-scrip-ions. ES blames our physician... read more
Oil prices plummeting. Get ready for major layoffs next year. Too much oil in the market with Shale oil revolution.
Any truth to FGP (Future Growth Project) pining away $500MM on the new Tengiz Housing/Office complex only to mothball it before it was completed? As I recall, it was supposed to be named (in Kazakh) something along the lines of Prosper Village... read more
Corporate factor = 1.25?
Not a lot of info has been disclosed about the selloff of the privately held Texas oil company Endeavor Energy, considering that at this point it is considered confidential info. Unofficially, Chevron and Exxon Mobil are going to put in a bid. If... read more

The downward slide continues. Just in time for pre-Christmas employee headcount trimming.
No one can argue the impressive results that Chevron achieved in Q3, not only surpassing the market predictions on the earnings but also achieving the biggest level in production yet ( 3 million barrels a day). I have to say that the company made... read more
The asset teams were very welll prepared, but the GM of Global Reserves wasn’t attentive to the process he manages. As a result there wer a number of pointless reviews and the team was left wit a view that the GM didn’t even understand the debate at... read more
Sounds like a match made in heaven. One company eager to sell and another slobbering all over to get in. But since Chevron doesn’t have a team of clever negotiators, I bet you 10 to 1 odds Chevron bungles the deal and overpays big time. Maybe even... read more
Does anyone know the salary ranges for petrotechs for each of the PSGs or if this info is available?
My goodness me. If Chevron does not see that we are completely overloaded with Petrotechs and centralized staff (ETC+UC+PRC) we won't survive more than five years- Please management step up and do what needs to be done for stockholders. Company needs... read more
Do you think there may be small/medium/large Chevron Layoffs in 2019?
