But that doesn't seem to be happening yet? Or at least I haven't noticed that attrition is slowing down.
I have been employed by MPC at a "legacy" refining site for double digit years now and had a discussion yesterday with an employee in another department with a different supervisor. We were unable to put into words what either of our supervisors did... — read more
Is Houston going to be the new hub for internal audit given the VP of IA resides in Houston?
This Friday is the last day for a fellow engineer in my department. He is the 4th engineer in less than a year to leave the company after transferring to California from Findlay. He told me that he had to stay with the company 1 year after... — read more
The reason most people are still here is not because they want to stay here, but because for some reason they are stuck here in this awful atmosphere. Isn't this company more than lucky because of that, otherwise they would be one of the most... — read more
The constant talk about how our pay is substandard compared to other similar companies got me thinking about that. I have a couple of friend that work in similar roles at other oil companies, and, judging from what they say, the pay and benefits are... — read more
can we get the same thing? i can use that money.
Regular stream of people leaving but not being replaced. Number of open jobs keeps creeping up and not being filled. A lot of of people out west are leaving since marathon will not stop with their good ole boy antics and nepotism. Seems like findlay... — read more
Does anyone want to share their experience of enrolling their children in the school system where corporate office is located? I’ve heard that the children that have grown up in the school system may receive some preferential treatment when it comes... — read more
I get that they want things to be just like they were before the pandemic hit, but the talk about putting people in the office that used to work remotely before is just too much. What’s the deal here? A sick obsession with control and micromanagement... — read more
The people that the MOC now employs I would not even call real replacements, most of them anyway. How can someone who doesn't know what he is doing be a replacement for a person who was a role model employee? How long will it take for the... — read more
Open job count the highest I've seen at ~240. When is Corporate going to see they have a problem, and that it's them?
I was laid off from MPC at the end of 2019, and have been unemployed ever since. It sickens me to read all of the negative comments about MPC from those of you who are still there... at least you're sill working! Although it appears that I'm in the... — read more
I'm counting the days to leave this place behind. What I couldn't even imagine was that after I gave notice, I would be overwhelmed with ridiculous amount of work. It's like they want me to do work for the next two months in 14 days. Has this... — read more
People have their bonus now exodus part 2 starts. It slowed down for a bit the past month or two but at least 3 people quit today at GBR. More to come.
Just curious if any of the Findlay folks have ever run into Gary post-retirement or heard anything from the guy? Would be interesting to know his thoughts on the poor purchases of MW and Andeavor, or the performance of MH.
Is there any word about MPC adding more WFH days for office employees in the near future?
SEC filing shows Ray is retiring effective in September. Should be interesting to see who fills that. Wouldn't be surprised to see Hennigan bring in someone external who wants to cut cost further and care even less about safety.
Executives got paid out 173% of their targets already. Leave your bonus payment rumors here.
Just posted, Marathon not paying a bonus or lump sum to employees at their 2 refinery’s that are for sale.
How many fewer employees will the Marathon have after the bonus is paid out?
"...the corporation’s strategy to increase the exploitation of the working class to pay off this debt through mass layoffs." OUCH!!! https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2022/02/22/mara-f22.html
Any rumors on when bonuses will be paid out?
Nobody wants to work here anymore. We can't get anybody with any knowledge or experience to join. We've been waiting to backfill three positions on our team for SIX MONTHS! That's six months of us having to cover the extra work. If they think this... — read more
Came across a draft of how to explain/handle questions about lower bonuses for people from Andeavor. The advice stinks since it basically states that you should have known this was coming because it was part of the MPC purchase agreement and they... — read more
They are posted on the compensation website. 1.5% raises to midpoints. What inflation? What a joke.
Anyone to discuss on Q4 results?
Make sure to fill out the survey and speak your mind about the issues that have been raised on this group over the last year. You can be tactful while still voicing your grievances. Supposedly it's anonymous, but in case it isn't, remain civil and... — read more
I'm to the point I don't even care who buys us anymore. Working for Marathon has been miserable. They can't even sell a refinery without screwing it up and keeping us hanging for months not knowing what our future holds. Its sad cause Tesoro/Andeavor... — read more
There was mention of February layoffs a while ago, what happened to that?
Who's buying Kenai refinery????
Does anyone know when bonuses will be paid this year? Last year was early, wondering if this year will be the same.
What the word on the latest abrupt executive departure? Hardly made it a year. My guess is he saw what a disaster this company is.
If the company you are started interning with hands you a prewritten script for you to post on LinkedIn saying how excited you are to be joining, take that as a red flag. Oh, and at the end of your internship, you’ll receive another script to post... — read more
We all know it's a matter of time, so just take one for the team and bring the kenai GM to your plant already. We need someone who actually cares here.
I’m sure there will be quite a few people commenting negatively however after the recent years it needs to be considered. Things in Findlay are what they are and that is a completely different world as the field. The more time that goes by the more... — read more
New hires aren’t just getting high signing bonuses, but also getting higher base comp, bonuses and stock than existing employees in the same role. What is going on here???
Seems to always be an opening posted for internal audit. Are people quitting the company or rotating to another department, or gettting that elusive promotion?
So to finally stop the bleeding of people, MPC goes to 9/80s next month….hearing that there’ll be two promotion cycles a year starting next year, what else have you all heard is happening in order to keep people?
