Am I the only one who thinks corporate layoffs are coming next week? I haven't heard anything concrete, but it's a lot of small thing that seem to be coming together to indicate it. Personally, the sooner they get it over with, the better. I... — read more
From what I understand, some folks have already been notified about their layoff. I'm curious if this is a part of the 300 that are supposed to be cut in the following weeks or if this is something separate? Is there anybody who knows more about what... — read more
Quieter around the office this week with less approval meetings. Seems to be that something will happen soon. One big layoff day for the whole company, too many people to dismiss using the usual disappear a few each week. Hope to see a few VPs go as... — read more
Just heard from someone whom I may not name, 300 full time staff would lose their jobs on October 6, or October 20, 2020. Packages are all made and HR is fully ready at this point.

Seems most companies have had salary/benefit cuts; contractors terminated; layoffs - temporary and permanent. What are we doing?
Well, not a great start to 2020 for Husky. Company is looking to cut ~$1B in 2020 spend following the oil market collapse today. Planned to spend ~$3B in 2020, so this is significant and I am guessing we will see another round of layoffs. Good luck... — read more
Not surprising me that most of the Oil & Gas Companies failing in Calgary, Alberta. All due to bad bad bad management. Management spent millions to resource IT, then decided to bring it in house costed tens of millions more in a short time... — read more
Any chance we'll get blindsided like this again any time soon?
