Thoughts? Any Cummins Layoffs in 2019?
Topics regarding layoffs at Cummins Inc.
Cummins' normal layoff cycle is 3 years, so with the last mass layoff of salaried employees being the 4th Quarter of 2015, you should be good until the 4th Quarter of 2018. They never "need" to layoff employees, however if at the end of the year... read more
If 14 years at Cummins has taught me anything. There are two times when Cummins likes to "right size" the company. After Q1 earnings when the year isn't going the way they predicted, and Q4 to try and make year end analyst predictions... and yes, it... read more
I was at Cummins for 16 years with good or exemplary performance ratings then got "laid off" in December of 15. This ended up being a blessing because 1. I had realized how much engineering job salaries outside of Cummins had outpaced Cummins during... read more
Possible layoffs announced! I'm sure part of this really has to do with China trade war, but something tells me part of this is also the company taking an opportunity that conveniently presented itself... read more
Something to think about when the next round of layoffs happen (see articles below). I was a highly educated, skilled, high performing, long term Cummins employee. Excellent performance reviews; however, I was laid off during their last mass layoff... read more
Cummins forced ranking is horrible. The "coaches" who are your bosses but don't like to be called that will not say if your doing anything wrong or right until the mid year review or year end review and then it's like "if you know I was doing... read more
Get out of this company while you can. This is from a highly ranked, high potential employee with excellent performance that got canned in October 2015 just because I had a high salary. No consideration for performance or dedication to the company... read more
It's hard to predict things, but folks are saying that there might be cuts in this year Columbus.
I've been hearing rumors from old colleagues that Cummins is looking to send over some of the work that was being done in the USA to India. Ever since the last mass layoff in the Fall of 2015 of hundreds of high performing, highly ranked employees... read more
Anybody hear of impending (new) layoffs with the distributors that have been acquired over the last couple years? Seems like more and more of the back office work will go to Indiana?
Cummins have sent a communication to the Daventry leadership team stating redundancies are imminent at Daventry engine plant as they are capping engine output 2016/17.
Cummins like many big corporations likes to boast how wonderful they are in giving to the United Way. But I believe that they are helping to create a need for the United Way in the first place by destroying the lives of their own employees with... read more
6/24/16 we were told techs and supporting personnel will be cut, MRC in Kenner La. will be shut down and Dallas MRC will reduce employees, HR will be talking to folks here in Dallas on Monday 6/27/16. really inconvenient after years of hard work and... read more

Women are screwed in Power Generation....all women on the Fridley PG operations staff have been forced out to other positions, left the company or let go. Many of theses, if not all were deemed high potential prior to the current plant managed. He... read more
A real joke! Positions cut in Dec 2015 were filled within a month! Job pistings that were frozen to save $ were reopened within months. All this to "save money" when reality is that it was for the advantage of year end stock prices. This company... read more

Yes, they are a great employer if you are not a salaried employee, in which case you are subject to the forced ranking system and mass layoffs every 3-4 years of experienced and dedicated employees. The only people that would see Cummins as a decent... read more
Those jobs that went were from Cummins’ professional ranks rather than the factory floor.
I was threw away by Cummins in 10 minutes after 7 years service. No explanations at all. My rankings were 2 or 2 + in the past years. I just relocated here by the company. I bought a house and sold my old house. No compensation for my losses. My 10... read more
Since Corp buyout of our distributorship started, that place went downhill FAST!! Cutthroat, backstabbing, lies .... very tense! What once was a "Family" atmosphere rapidly turned into a Corporate robot factory, very sad! In a nutshell, them buying... read more
Spent 14 years working for Cummins, and I can tell you from experience you'll be much better off leaving. The sooner you leave, the better off you'll be. 14 years working for Cummins, 8 years of layoffs, 2 years of no merit increases, and 1 year... read more
Over 40 were just laid off over the last 3 weeks and I was one of them after being there 5 years. I feel sorry for the ones left behind who now have to do double the work for the same pay. Theu are headed down hill.
When will they fix the broken leadership at power generation? The leadership keeps prospering but the rank and file suffer?
I already too redundancy - I am single, and will travel now. It's a bit easier for me but some have families and that's hard on them.
Columbus is doomed! Cummins keeps so much going downtown, the downtown restaurants will start closing and the housing will go down - this will be massive for local economy, it's not like it's very diversified so the hit will be massive.. Hotel Indigo... read more
They are donw with the layoffs in India offices, in the month of november. 250-300 layoffs in India.
How bout the Corporate Office at Rocky Mountain. It does not seem right that Cummins will keep all these corporate offices with that new builing going up in Indiana
Do you guys know what's a typical severance pay package for someone who joined last year? Please let me know.
OK, how about this - when lines go away and jobs are lost those employees are to go to other areas in the plant. For example a worker with 10+ years experience on a first shift may get forced to another shift until they find another job within the... read more
The system sucks. It's as simple as that and Cummins is poorly managing it on top of it. I've seen forced rating and ranking systems before, rank and yank kind of deals, all of them are bad but we are especially bad.The whole process requires you to... read more
