Topics regarding layoffs at Imperial Oil Limited

Now what?

So I had a major health issue and was told by 7 doctors not to return to work at Imperial. SunLife declined to pay long term disabilty. Union won't do anything. Lawyer sent a couple of appeal letters to SunLife but then gave up. Not once has... —  read more

TMTS....and so it begins....

Managers are too chicken to even give their direct reports a heads up. These asian clones just show up at site and managemet expects you to do the data transfer. Bring out the data sync cable ppl. Good luck getting ppl to train their job away.

All managers are awful

Some managers and team leads are absolute bullies. They are inhuman and ruthless. There's no need to use "some" in this context. All managers are bullies. We used to have good managers but they were driven out because they were not good fits for... —  read more 


With talks of layoffs and cuts, we need to unionize. Many crown corps and government offices have unions, and the pay and job security are decent. This includes office workers (CL25 and below).

More campus deadweight

I was yesterday-years old when I found out that there’s an actual CSF group. Can someone tell me how these clowns directly contribute to the bottom line? Sounds like easy target for outsourcing or just getting rid of completely.

Is this legal?

I report to American leaders (yes, that’s plural) who report to American managers (yes, again plural) who report to American VPs (yep, plural again). When I say Americans, I mean that they’re located at EM in the US! How is this legal in Canada? —  read more 

Change the signs to EM

This is not Imperial Oil anymore. Let’s be honest and change the signs to ExxonMobil. Imperial managers only goal is to keep their EM bosses happy so they can move on and get well ranked. They will drive BTC targets and reduce local head count to... —  read more
