Hey guys, anyone heard about layoffs in HDS? I heard they laid off two people to meet target
Am I hearing correctly that layoffs are coming to cementing?
There were layoffs last week. What happened?
Any updates. Was just told in September I’d be traveling from Odessa, TX to catch work with my Elite there. ?????? .
Focal point was handed out in North Belt this week. I wonder if this paltry amount was management appeasement for the masses to keep them inline or is this the baseline to determine who gets canned due to their high wage.
Yes boy and girls it's that time again. Looks like it's going to be at the end of June for HDBS. Not that hard to believe considering what it has become. Management going from bad to worse, if that was even possible. But then again we have J. Segura... — read more
Just heard from a friend @ NorthbeltFacility Houston that QuickPulse is going away or being sold???? Not verified...but wondering if anyone else has heard the same. More dragon breath.
What a damn joke. The HR dept there is such a joke the management team is a joke.
Anyone noticed rig count & frac spreads going down in the last 5 wks lost 59 rigs & 38 frac spreads something is happening!
Hiring alot of new people, one section has all of the work subbed outside & our guys are going home due to no work or “no programs”, but “the order book is full” what could really be going on? Also the parking lot isn’t accommodating all of the new... — read more
Rumors are flying that the field maintenance is getting tired of the manufacturing plants BS. poor service, poor communication, soaring cost, safety missed, etc. Poor leadership here at DMC is going to cost us jobs again.
Not sure if this will ruffle any feathers or not but I personally really like working here. I've been reading some posts on this forum and I was kinda surprised with how these posts are leaning towards the negative. I didn't have any negative... — read more
What's yall take in this recent change? Are you buying the rubber stamp response from Management? Alot of people are suspicious there is something bigger brewing.
What are your thoughts about potential Halliburton layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
My pay was cut, but I still have a job. in fact, now I have two to make up for what I lost.
I am a little worried because the atmosphere is very tense. I don't know how much truth is in them, but there are already rumors that layoffs are inevitable. Any new insight about possible layoffs to share?
Told in a staff meeting today that we need to hold the line on cost and expeditures. Any other departments in the same boat. I guess this is in anticipation for the global slowdown.
Is Halliburton having issues recruiting people? Seems like all the new hires that are arriving have almost no manufacturing experience. I personally don't mind, everyone starts somewhere, but it's odd to me because normally I'm used to seeing people... — read more
I wonder whether our leadership even knows where it wants this company to be in the future. Have they completely lost direction, because that's my impression?
My biggest hope when it does happen is to see them for once get rid of people who deserve it and leave all the hard-working people alone. So far, with every layoff we lost some of our best and always kept the worst. Is it too much to ask for a... — read more
When I saw person who doesn't have the necessary skills getting a promotion, I gave myself a deadline by which I want to find something new. I'm starting to hate this place.
I completely understand those who decide to quite quit. However, you should always look at the other side, how good or bad is it for your career in the long term? I mean, if a person cares about his or her career at all, then it is better to... — read more
It used to be rare for someone's position to greatly exceed his or her competence. Today, incompetence no longer surprises me at all. Working here has been reduced to daily dealings with very self-confident mediocrities. How do you deal with... — read more
Is this affecting oilfield services? https://www.foxbusiness.com/economy/half-us-companies-preparing-cut-jobs-survey-shows
The general advice that everyone shares: set the boundaries and don't let them put more on your plate. However, how feasible is it in reality? My opinion is that it is pretty difficult to do. I'm interested in how much more work you do now compared... — read more
My question is why does this company take so long to replace an employee who leaves. What's the problem? Has it become so difficult to attract solid employees, or is Halliburton not even trying to make replacements for individuals who leave? I have... — read more
What are your thoughts on 6% focal points when inflation is at 8% or higher for everything you are purchasing right now?
There is still a relatively long time until the quarterly results. I hope the strategy works well. Are there any early predictions?
Ever since I started working here, I’ve never had less work to do and that’s worrying me quite a bit. Anyone else?
Looks like we are getting manning levels up to a pay off level again. Factory full of people with no work for them. Communication briefs telling us how much work we have got to do ah well
Got to love the price of gas. I feel your pain having to drive to North Belt everyday is taking a toll on my wallet. For those working from home, I am glad you got a raise from saving all that gas money.
Since there has been NO whinging, whining, or moaning from the 'hands' that have appeared on here, for at least two weeks, ALL must be well within the corporate confines of Halliburton. What IS the secret of this success? BTW, how many of the... — read more
What do I have to do to be laid off so I can move on from this toxic place?
What do you predict regarding HAL layoffs?
Read about companies still doing business in Russia. One of them is guess who...Halliburton! Makes me ashamed to acknowledge being a former employee.
What is going on in Arbroath plant. I heard there is a lot of promotions and reshuffles. What is going on there. Can anybody clarify.
