Hope everyone that got let go a year ago are ki----g it out there!
It no longer seems to me that good quarterly results can be the result of effort, work and knowledge of our management. If the next quarter is more successful, they will present it as their success. And will it be their success or just a pure luck? I... — read more
At one point I thought that all my close colleagues would end up leaving here. People were leaving en masse. That's why I'm surprised now because no one has left for almost two weeks. Does it seem to you that the trend of leaving has decreased or... — read more
I'm a little worried because my colleagues are complaining they've never had more work to do, while I've never had less. This week was almost like I was on vacation. I mean, it’s not that I’m complaining because I’m not overwhelmed, but I wonder... — read more
I understand a lot of people are worried about their job and will blow this off. However something needs to be done to stop the control over our civil liberties. I’m proposing that everyone walks out in solidarity or calls in if/when we get the email... — read more
Anyone else wonder how they pulled off the BIPOC/women hiring initiative? Seems that it clearly violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act as well as our own hiring policies. I wonder if a white guy who gets discriminated against by the company... — read more
When the CEO did the last townhall, his main points were all about cutting costs. I’ve noticed within my organization how safety concerns are bypassed in order to protect the bottom line. I’ve heard it at other refineries as well. Serious life... — read more
Has there been a confirmation of layoffs this month or is it still in the rumor stages?
Disclaimer - this is speculation and observation only. It seems that with fall approaching we are noticing the start of some consolidation of responsibilities within departments locally. It has a similar feeling to last year before layoffs. Anyone... — read more
Was offered a job at marathon.. after reading this posts I have serious doubts. Is the company really this bad?
It's been half a year since I've left here and I don't miss anything in particular, except for a few colleagues, who have also moved to other companies. I worked here for a long time and I’d like to know if there are some shifts for the better... — read more
But that was a long time ago. I knew many more such people who did not want to leave the company even though they were offered much better pay elsewhere. Now I don’t believe anyone would do that anymore. Moreover, I would leave Marathon for the... — read more
What's going on with that tender offer on MPC stock? Why would they make the range so low? Stock is already higher than their cap. I am really hopeful the stock goes to $100 within the next 2 years.
Anyone heard about moving HQ (Findlay and San Antonio) to Houston>
How many good people are we going to lose before Marathon wakes up to realize this is the start of a massive job seekers market and they're losing some of their best people with their archaic policies?
Does this guy exist? You’d think during an unprecedented global crisis, layoffs, worst downturn in refining history the CEO would communicate with the organization. Say what you want about Hemminger, at least he appeared human. Oh, and buckle... — read more
Ran away from this toxic place, couldn't wait any longer.
Directionally it seems company is focusing outside of Findlay. Without MPC expanding in Findlay, not sure where future buyers are going to come from.
There seems to be a large number of people planning on leaving due to MPC’s inability to allow a more permeant work from home schedule. I expect a lot of good talent to be walking out the door due to managements fixation on everyone being in the... — read more
There is not much left until the results for the first-quarter are announced. A month and a few days. I wonder what your predictions are? I’m not very optimistic and I’m just afraid that there will be significant layoffs after that. Or even before... — read more
Heard some people who were deemed critical received a special, additional bonus or retention. Anyone else heard this? How were these individuals selected?
Is there anyone here who was recalled to share their experiences? Are you in a worse situation now than before? Honestly, I would gladly go back if it was possible because after the layoff I went to six different interviews, but all the options were... — read more
I was wondering if the pay cut that took place in West Texas for the drivers was just for those drivers or company wide? The fact that they implemented a $6/hr pay cut on top of utilizing the no overtime exemption is down right wrong. So... — read more
Video update from CEO today says bonuses are coming and are expected to be "near target" for more sites and employees - "maybe slightly above or below target for some". Numbers to be released on MPC Connect March 8th with distribution coming March... — read more
Other than the ELT, there are no more safe positions at Marathon. We've had how many layoffs in the past five years? Too many to recall them all. We are now at a stage where we expect layoffs all the time. Not one person I talked to thinks they're... — read more
Will the new CFO move to findlay?
It was a risky move but it turned out to be the best decision I could have made. I wasn't sure if my new workplace would be a good fit but I was so tired of MPC and its toxic work environment and never-ending layoffs that I decided to go for it. I... — read more
I keep seeing the company layoff good people only to realize they needed those people two months later, then MPC posts for the position. What gives? Are we that incompetent? Seems expensive and not very efficient..
Any word on the next round? Speculating whether it will be mostly from Findlay or is there a number they we shooting for at all the sites.
I don't have much work experience in the oil industry and unfortunately, I got a job at an unfavorable time. MPC is my first job. Here I saw that someone mentioned that other companies in this industry offer better benefits, while others think that... — read more
Has anyone heard if any of these are still on the books for 2021? I keep hearing people saying that we will not be getting a bonus, there will be no pay raises, and the pension will soon be cut from the benefits. Any color that anyone can provide?... — read more
Even within the past ten months I've heard there were plenty of people who decided to leave on their own. Can anybody here tell me how they're doing? There must be some who still talk to their former coworkers. Do they have any regrets about... — read more
Good source tells me the next big round will be occurring soon. Primarily Findlay corporate.
Might be the wrong company in the bellow post but it doesn't mean that it's a bad question for us as well.
I hear the salaried MPC Alaskans are getting a pay cut? anybody else ?
What was the impact of the layoffs in the internal audit department or were they exempted given their unique role in the company?
Is the announcement of Don Templin's retirement planned or does this come as a surprise? If a surprise why the decision to retire?
