At least there's some good news with this sinking oil tanker of a company. Sure there's layoff, oil prices & EOI's but at least the interest rates are going down and our lump-sums are going... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Chevron Corp.
I’ll have to admit, I’m a little disgusted with their relocation policy. If you were relocated to Midland with Chevron and they leave you standing you are required to relocate back on your own dime if you worked there over 2 years. I don’t know... — read more
I haven't heard or seen one in a long time. There is a lot of 'Doing' going on right now. Doing layoffs. And you will be doing a job search.
Need to know if I will get the bonus next march >:)
Seeing invites for office hours or open mic discussions where those interested can learn about the organization. That is equivalent to hosting a career fair but not holding interviews to fill a job. If this is too overwhelming for selection reps... — read more
We’re an agile company that’s spent millions on a digital transformation, but we can’t deploy a simple job posting tool to handle our own layoffs. So, all of us will be browsing a 10,000 row Sharepoint list tomorrow morning to find our jobs. If that... — read more
Dear Chevron HR - We (Noble employees) got an email this week saying future staffing decisions will be made by “teams comprised of Noble and Chevron”. Presumably this means our managers. While this may seem like reasonable idea, I’d offer a word of... — read more
Too bad some of you are going to have to work in the real world when Chevron cuts you loose! Oil company salaries are grossly too high compared to engineers and scientists in the rest of private industry in the US. I've worked in private industry... — read more
So, if I get left standing when would I be eligible for Unemployment? Would it be October 30? Or December 14? Or would we not be eligible because of severance? This would be my first Rodeo so I am not sure how it works.
Severance payments cannot be deferred. After termination date, 60 days from the receipt of the Release Waiver to review and return it to the Company. There is a seven-day revocation period, after which severance payments will be processed. In the... — read more
Based in SR. Anyone else get word?
Australia press just reported Chevron has reduced staff by 25%. Why don’t our US leaders tell us about the international status? This may give some idea on how round 4 will go in the US. Since Australia is a core area it is not good news. Lots of... — read more
So if I take the EOI route, how soon can I get a job with another company outside of the oil & gas sector and still receive the severance? November 2nd? Or do I need to wait after the redeployment period? Couldn't find anything in the... — read more
I am so sick and more sick of hearing from every leader that has a meeting; "Take care of yourself and your family." While we are working 6 or 7 days a week on all the major initiatives that are going up. it is such bull so keep the insincere... — read more
Everyone at work talks about the lump sum timing with regard to interest rates, timing, etc. What are your suggestions?
For those who make it, is there any guilt seeing your friends left standing or let go? Some are very good, I know this is a survival matter, but how do you deal with it that some really good people did not make it?
Noble here - just got an email stating we won’t be interviewing, but will be able to fill out a “talent profile template”...any one willing to share insights into this process? Seems like theatre.
We have another form to fill out for the transformation called the Job template one pager. Did management in previous rounds have to fill this in our just the worker bees in round 4?
I was left standing in R3 in HR and it is a blessing for my health and sanity. Here are my thoughts on the people that remained and got placed. Most of them have threatened to leave Chevron at more than one point in their careers. Our VP of HR has... — read more
Email from WEN today with resources for those participating in R4. Picture of African-American woman with boxing gloves with the title “Are you ready for round 4?” Uhhhh. There is no way I am the only one offended by this. No matter what color I am.
Its going to be an interesting next 6 weeks. Now that Chevron has slashed contractors rates by 20%, they are now targeting the employees. I heard that all operations is being outsourced to a preferred vendor..but whats that mean for current... — read more
Folks that joined after May 1st 2019 are exempt from applying. Does that mean some jobs in the pool tomorrow already predefined for those folks?
R4 jobs available vs how many people applying. Does anyone have this information?
To avoid any issues with receiving our package. Can we start a job immediately after being notified? Do we have to wait until our 45 day redeployment is done? Thanks in advance.
This comment on another stream is getting much attention internally. Leaders do read this page and try to glean sentiment from our workforce. This must be HR. My business partner mentioned that one of the many problems with HR is that none of the... — read more
Did they really got read of all the fat middle management or as always the protected each other's? Spill the beans partners :) I hope they slashed all the losers
Okay, I’ll be in round 4. They are going to posting jobs soon.. we were encouraged to apply for our own job, but in looking at the new org chart I discovered my current position will be eliminated. GULP! So I can apply to 4 others. ... — read more
After a handful of unqualified candidates were selected and promoted in HR during R2, it is obvious HR did it's part to pump up some corporate numbers that are being shared externally. Will the selections be based on more of the same? Or, will the... — read more
Good news.....I landed a job. Bad news, it's a job that I did not apply to and with a terrible supervisor. I would have rather been laid off than work for this mo–n.
Congrats if you bought Cvx ten yrs ago at $79.51. You have only lost about $3 with the close today at $76.35. Chevron may win a most woke company award but this stock performance is pitiful. We better select the best talent available in the reorg... — read more
Anyone know of people who were told they weren't eligible for EOI because they have previously announced their retirement. I know some folks were still approved for EOI after having their replacements named and in place and other folks were not... — read more
Who has time to keep posting on workplace? Some people on there seem to have no clue of reality in the business units- too many posts are so happy and optimistic.
There is a rumor that the company is rushing us to complete this TPS EFI this year as soon as possible so they can achieve "optimization" within the eventual support of this on Chevron's cloud. However, anytime management says "optimization" it... — read more
First of all, I don't believe SAFe is actually agile at all. There are some good things with the framework, but as usual, Chevron screwed it up and allowed that growth mindset of not just IT, but also of our key CTC VPs to also scale uncontrollably... — read more
Does Chevron still have a pension plan in place ?
Interesting how much effort the company is putting in to ensuring that they don't have to deal with an age discrimination lawsuit. One North American VP, with no upstream experience, has continuously dissed experience, upstream executives and ... — read more
Or did they learn their lesson from the R2 communication that used diversity as a way to spin layoffs?
Lots of good people left standing at Chevron today following Round 3 selections...people who had given blood, sweat and tears to the company for 20-30 years. Official internal announcements coming on Tuesday, September 15. What a shame.
Just curious, anyone know of anyone who's left Chevron, but came back on contract basis?
