Topics regarding layoffs at Chicago Bridge & Iron
I was wondering if apart from the bombastic announcements in all caps that claim major layoffs are incoming (no clues whatsoever that it's trolling, nope, not a one,) do we have any concrete info on what we might be looking at in the following... read more
Has anyone else who has been laid off experienced problems getting their W2? I have left messages for their hotline twice and heard nothing back. Albeit, they promise to return calls in 2-3 days.
What are the usual pre layoff signals? Besides the buzzards perched on the roof?
Facilities personnel at Oakpark. All the usual pre-layoff signals in The Woodlands today.
Has anyone heard if McDermott is cleaning house in Houston? Tyler is tired of bailing them out. The people in Houston should be nervous.
Has anyone heard if the engineering office in Tyler Texas is going to close? They sure are nervous out there.
I heard there was going to be a new QC Manager at the Walker Facility. Has anyone else heard anything?
Wow isn’t funny how the latest post about the Walker QC manager is gone
There once was a privately owned company and it was called Chicago Bridge and Iron. The company being privately owned was a good company respected not only by the employees that worked there but also by others that didn't. It was called a family and... read more

Anybody notice how CB&I made sure to use the words "could be " when announcing supposedly temporary layoffs at Walker pipe fabrication yard? I'm willing to bet my house that it has already been decided that majority of those (if not all) are... read more

Layoff is in February just a heads up,I know someone that works for the state warn notice issued already for layoff in February. Your welcome Is this referring to layoffs that have already been announced for February, or is it talking about something... read more
Not a peep from anyone. People are worried and fearing for their livelihoods, yet cbi nor McDermott care. Not a good start.
Very good source stated MDR was able to secure loans to negotiate lower payoffs. Share the profits with execs from both companies. Sell tech. Payoff debts and net over a billion. Cbi will then be dissolved. It’s a perfect plan to get the execs rich... read more
40 people layoff agine this Friday.
I have been told the the Tyler offices are going to be closed anyone else think that’s true?
McDermott if smart will fire all management and hire condience people from well know companies! Existing is corrupt!

It reminds me of an illfaited “love story” where two recovering addicts fall for each other while falling apart and get hooked on that sh-- again until eventually they both just over dose. Good luck, I wouldn’t trust an addict if I were you.
Has anyone heard anything about something happening on this day? Just a new rumor circulating.
So the good engineers in Tyler could still jump ship. Other engineering firms have their sharks circling, waiting to snatch them up. Tyler has cream of the crop Process guys. If they lose those guys Tyler will be in trouble.
Only silver lining for CB&I employees now is that McDermott wants to have a functional on-shore group and they should try to preserve the workers bees. Otherwise, if CB&I let people go at the current pace, there will not be an onshore group left. At... read more
CB&I is full of crooks in management, why would anyone want to buy them. Notice nobody in the business bought them, they knew better. Treat your employees with respect.
