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?
Since I can’t believe that it’s just their incompetency to blame, I’d rather think that leadership doesn’t really want this to be a great company for employees. Basically, they aren't even trying to make everyone happy because it's difficult for them... — read more
Curious about thoughts about the cut of sick days to 7 and mandatory quarantine for Covid symptoms…
Among all the things that I don't like here, the worst is that this company doesn't care about the safety of its employees at all. I can say that I have never worked in a company that cares less about the safety of workers. Terribly. How long... — read more
Is there anything more demoralizing for an employee than to see someone climbing very easily even though he or she has no talents, just because they have strong connections with some of those in higher positions? It's really frustrating. I have been... — read more
Seems like MPC may have cut too deep with the layoffs in 2020. A significant increase in workload for many who stayed with the company is starting to impact staff to the point where the company has noticed an unusual up-tick in departures. Couple... — read more
Even if this company is not in survival mode, I think it operates as if it was in that mode... I just wonder what the future holds for a company whose leadership seems to me to have no vision other than to maintain survival mode for a long time to... — read more
It occurred to me today that although we (MPC) thought we took over Andeavor and were the dominate company, in the end, Andeavor won. the massive paydays the Andeavor talent made when MPC severed them. MPC has shutdown/sold many of the... — read more
Looks like a small Alaskan company.
How likely is that there will be Marathon Oil layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
This company has gone down hill. If you work here, you probably feel the same. Mike Hennigan, if you read this, please do some self reflecting. You are the embodiment of the Peter principle. Here is a free tip, on the house: You don't announce... — read more
I gave them the best years of my life only to be hung out to dry by lying broads and foreman step up foremens! Do not trust management! They tell you you can do stuff and then they throw you under the bus!
Any other plants going up for sale?
Hard to understand the never ending drive for sites to cut budgets to the bone while MPC is looking to spend $9B more on buybacks, and has $7B in cash sitting with no plan. Cutting wasteful spending makes great sense, but the ivory castle is... — read more
Corporate is onsite telling us how to schedule work… taking us backwards…. Any other L10’s feeling the pain. What a joke
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>
