Anyone would care to chime in with a prediction about potential Cummins layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
Seems like Uncle Tommy Lines likes to do his layoffs right around Christmas. Any burbles?
If you have to have constant emails about assistance and resources for depression, substance abuse, stress, and whatever else, is it really okay? I know these are real issues but work environment should not be leading you to it. Is this heavily... — read more
It's pretty quiet here... I’m still not going to leave Cummins, I’m happy with the pay and the benefits and hopefully there won’t be any layoffs soon, but I think there’s plenty of room for improvements! A friend's daughter got a job, albeit in a... — read more
What do you think?
The biggest circle jerk is when they outsource US products to INTL countries...I think you know which ones I am speaking about here. The cost analysis to justify this is never correct and they leave out, for example, some component shipping costs... — read more
Many are hoping to be laid off to get away from here with a safety net. That right there says a lot about a company.
All the posts here suggest that Cummins does not care about employees but does it pay well? Why do people work here?
It is very difficult for me to make a decision to leave this place. I hear from other people that they finally got some relief when they left and that they are now not only paid more, but also under less stress than they were here. Considering... — read more
Cummins offers a pretty decent severance package, at least when offered a couple years ago. You get a month of pay for every year worked up to 9 years. You can’t ever get hired back if you are laid off. The standard promotional increase was 7%. No... — read more
Has there been any chatter lately?
Any chances somebody can tell me what to expect? How does Cummins handle acquisitions? How bad are layoffs? I know there'll be some for sure because some positions will be made redundant, but I'm hoping it's nothing drastic. I'd be grateful for any... — read more
The subject of lack of pay was brought up in a meeting with the facility manager for the fourth time over the course of three months, this morning. Spurred on by the discovery of the new temporary employees pay which is Way over veteran technicians... — read more
Oh that’s right: he found out! It was all fake news reported by others until he was shown the door.
I do not believe that the number of those who will refuse to get vaxed will be large.
What are your thoughts on the Cummins Vaccine mandates they are working to enforce?
I wasted 16 years at Cummins, didn’t know it was a waste of time until I moved on. Rolls Royce Aerospace in Indy has several people who left Cummins. No routine RIFS, downsizing, restructuring, global plant closures, non-citizen or work-visa drama... — read more
When, where, how many? Anything?
I came here with little experience and thought in a year I would upgrade my skillset enough to be able to find a better job. No matter how hard I try to learn as many new things as possible, I'm pretty limited in that regard. I'm not satisfied. The... — read more
A friend who went to a competing company now has much higher pay and much better benefits. Another colleague who left here, also for a competing company, does too. I hear all the time about people who not only found relief since they left here but... — read more
While still employed I’ve been networking my bu-t off and “shopping” around for prospective employers. In an interview I’ve had recently I was informed that still being employed was in my favor as opposed to most. I’ve kept my resume updated and I... — read more
I'm tired of it. I'm an adult who's been working at Cummins for seven years and I know exactly what I need to do and how to do it. I don't need a manager who follows my every move, breathing down my neck day in, day out to tell me to do the thing I... — read more

Signed a 2 yr contract with the company, and am 2 months in and already wanting to run for the hills. Best way to win the layoff lottery?
So called Cummins culture drives away anyone of value. These CLOWNS will let the highest skilled profitable employees walk out the door or terminate their position because they think it saves them money and profits their shareholders. Meanwhile they... — read more

Can someone here advise how bad is the turnover or layoffs in the emissions division? From everyone's comments here, it seems as though Cummins a toxic environment to work for. Is that true? A lot of micromanaging managers that are worse than... — read more

This office was permanently closed last month. 110 people in that office, 50 were Cummins personnel, the remaining were all Suppliers or Contractors. The firing has begun. Cummins is both reducing employee headcount, and replacing outsourcing service... — read more
A former colleague who I worked closely with in my BU left almost a year ago and we connect every few months just to touch bases. In a recent conversation we had he expressed an interest in being rehired here. I thought he was joking at first - then... — read more
Is it safe to approach them with an issue or not?
Joined Cummins 10 years ago, surprised I am still here. They’ve moved me recently for a job that I don’t really enjoy, but I signed a 2 year policy. Any of you been relocated by Cummins, and left before your 2 years were up? Did they come after... — read more
Worrying about being laid off all the time sucks, mildly put.
The meaning of layoffs is not part of their vision to fix this company and to improve things, instead behind the cuts always stands their greed. After people were laid off, what changed here? Is it any better or is it quite the opposite - worse... — read more
They like to play with people, don’t they? I don't even know what my duties are anymore because they are constantly changing. My role has changed a few times and this time I said I have had enough of these mental gymnastics! Working at Cummins is a... — read more
I am a pretty easy going optimistic guy and I can handle most any stressful situation. However, working at Cummings has slowly changed me to where I’ve contemplated calling the mental health hotline. The question I have now is if I call how anonymous... — read more
