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.
Top executives and ceo Jeff Miller meeting to discuss closures of all European services. Due to Russian Ukraine conflict 02/24/2022
Is he gone?
I'm shocked that it's been as long as it has without any layoffs but I think that means that a new round is closer than we think. I don't mean to spread rumors or scare people without a reason, I'm just being realistic. This management is not going... — read more
Any changes to the Halliburton vaccination policy now that the Supreme Court has confirmed the unconstitutionality of the federal mandate?
I'm totally exhausted. For months now, I have had the feeling that I am just constantly working. I have never been more overworked and under more stress. People here work 12 hours shifts for days. No wonder people are leaving more than ever. Who... — read more
Is that still on?
Thoughts? Any Halliburton layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
I'm asking about those of us who were laid off, not fired? I've been applying but I never got any responses. I can't see a reason for it - considering my qualifications and experience - other than that I've been blacklisted when I was laid off. It'd... — read more
Did Halliburton COMPLETELY shut down Grand Junction and Rock Springs? If so, Did Vernal remain open to cover Western Colorado and Western Wyoming? What about Farmington?
You are not actually required to fill out the covid vaccination survey. There is no law or policy that requires you to give Halliburton your medical information. Most states they operate out of have barred mandating the vaccine so not sure what they... — read more
Is it coming?
We don’t have any work at the moment, and our managers told us not to come to the shop. Can they do that? I’m going 2 weeks without pay should I quit or is there something I can do?
If somebody was laid off can they reapply for a job down the line? A friend who was part of my team was planning on applying for an opening but he isn't sure if they're just going to ignore his application. I had no idea what to tell him since I... — read more
All you folks are constantly complaining and bi-----g about Halliburton…so fu----g leave! Go to another oil company or go use your CDL outside of oil and gas or god forbid go find a job doing something completely different where you don’t hate your... — read more
