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
Topics regarding layoffs at Marathon Petroleum
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?
Okay, since I’m hearing this in the hallways and seen a thread about this, I’m going to address it here. First of all, if you’re still employed by MPC, consider that a bonus. Second, MPC didn’t cut their pension or 401k match like some oil and... — read more
Are marathon drivers going to haul gas for seven elevens like we did speedways or are they getting rid of trucks
There were 4 separation dates for layoffs and only know of people that got two different days for separation and not all 4. Chances that maybe the next two dates are being announced this week?
Does anyone know if there will be RIFs at the end of October? Have a few buddies in departments that have unusual departmental meetings Tuesday-Wednesday next week. Been with Marathon 5 years and last month were the first mass RIFs I have seen.
Anyone seeked out legal advice regarding the TAP and General release? Anyone been told by an attorney not to sign the release?
Many supervisors at Garyville and Texas City told severed employees that their selection was made by Findlay. This is false. Your supervisor made the selection to cut you. He / she may have been given a number of people to cut, but your supervisor... — read more
How is everyone feeling about going back into the office?
Anyone else suspicious of being let go due to medical reasons?
MPC seems to only excel in old school logic. Look no further than their move to force legacy Andeavor refineries (the ones remaining) to 5x8hr work weeks. Meanwhile, other companies moving to flexible or remote schedules, more WFH flexibility. I... — read more
They don't need to lay me off, I've decided to leave on my own the first chance I get. This company is a joke. I'm sick and tired of nepotism that runs rampant and all the bulshit politics that accompany it. My advice to everybody is to leave before... — read more
Rumors of a next round of layoffs coming. Can anyone confirm?
Below is a direct quote from MPC's Corporate LinkedIn feed this morning. Good to see that while 2,000+ people lost their jobs in the last week, MPC's "well-traveled photography staff" is roaming the national parks taking pictures. The icing on the... — read more
Mikey has a big mess that Gary and Greg left behind. I agree with most of the comments that I have read. This will definitely be an excellent case study for Gary’s "The Ohio University", when all the dust settles. Including in this case study, I... — read more
Marathon was a super outstanding small company that turned itself into a terrible big company. They should have never bought all those extra oil refineries out west several years ago - a disastrous bold move that everyone but me jumped for joy over... — read more
