“ROCS safety portal is live.....All Oxy employees should use the safety portal to report all safety and environmental incidents or near misses...” Next sentence advises it doesn’t apply to LAPC employees.
Topics regarding layoffs at Occidental Petroleum Corp.
BWAHAHAHAHA!!!!! This is insane on so many levels!!! This proves once again how clueless she is. Fireside Chat - Oh yes we all feel so close to Aunt Vi. Let's just cozy up to her around the fire after she's jacked around with us for over a year... — read more
VH states we have to have a climate change story. But why can’t that story involve shelving of the carbon projects until the company is in good shape again? They are the reason our cash flow is still challenged and the company can’t even afford... — read more
This is an honest question. I see so much hate on this board and it makes me wonder what are people still doing here if they are that unhappy? If nothing else, a layoff would give you enough in a way of severance to have a few months to find a job... — read more
I know our 401k is protected by federal laws. But is our Oxy pension protected too in a ch 11 or 7 bankruptcy? The answer to this will determine if I need to leave Oxy now or later. If anyone knows, or has already spoken to a labor/corporate lawyer... — read more
Icahn is our daddy now! He will control VH like a puppet and if prices do not recover layoffs are coming with minimal severance. OXY HR - You are the scum of the Earth. Most employees look at you with the same disgust as the rest of management.
Hilcorp is hiring a JIB Accountant https://www.hilcorp.com/work-at-hilcorp/careers/ Go for it! Oxy is a deadend h-hole.
It’s a shame to see how this failed integration has revealed the incompetence of Oxy IT management. We’re now 10 months from the merger and hardly anything has been integrated. L-APC still operate on a separate computer system and struggle to... — read more
S—ers! Future employers will see Oxy on your resume and laugh.
All shareholders will be required to pay $0.79/share quarterly to boost OXY share price.
Occidental Petroleum Corporation (NYSE:OXY) said today that its Board of Directors has declared a regular quarterly dividend of $0.01 per share on common stock payable on July 15, 2020, to stockholders of record as of June 15, 2020. This is an update... — read more
Honestly, I am amazed VH was reelected as CEO. She will go down as the worst CEO in oil and gas history. I get why Icahn supported her, so she will be his puppet from now on, but why did the rest of the shareholders allow it? I voted against her and... — read more
Oxy’s troubles and the downfall of the entire US O&G industry. VH’s re-election is easily explainable by the Ponzi scheme operated by collusion between shareholders and company executives, from small operations to the... — read more
I still don't think we should of had to give up 30% of our salary, and then continue to have layoffs and vsp offers. With less people to hold down the fort and do the job we should at least be paid the same as those that were laid off. There are... — read more
UN F—ING BELIEVABLE
Sure don’t hear that chant any longer !! Like we did when OXY came in and told Anadarko how great they where. Anadarko people took the severance packages and are now watching the circus . Anadarko was a great company and took care of their... — read more
Let’s be realistic for a moment, the fact over half the country is working from home effectively and efficiently reveals the reality that oil demand will be nonexistent for years to come. Transportation demand isn’t coming back anytime soon if at... — read more
We all know layoffs are very likely in the near term. Vicki, if you are reading this, we ask for equality In the next round of layoff. VP, managers, directors, leads should be on the list as well. Just because they have the management positions... — read more
Just got my proxy in the mail today. It had to be returned by yesterday for my vote to count. I wouldn’t put it past VH and Oxy to have held up delivery of these so people wouldn’t get to vote her a– off the board.
What is the highest amount of months anyone has heard of being accepted so far. Highest I’ve heard so far is 12 months.
I'm sure more will be coming out of the wood work soon...
What you've just said is one of the most insanely id–tic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for... — read more
SMH. While I have been very put off by the power-hungry folks and micro-managers, awful communication, and lack of strategy, I have held on with my belief in Vicki for some time. Unfortunately, today’s “conversation” was a complete missed... — read more
May of missed it. did she mention layoffs after VSPs or if they don’t get s&a lower?
It's the only question anyone cares about.
As expected, today's "conversation" is all about sharing of the VH Delusion. I shut it down at about minute five.
Can someone live record her Q&A tomorrow and put it under an alias account on reddit or somewhere and post the link in here?
After so many bad decisions - especially regarding acquisitions - we were in a bad state already. Now with the coronavirus added to the mix, it's unrealistic to think bankruptcy is not happening - and sooner rather than later. Titanic was in better... — read more
Just a question.

Here’s a quote/ nugget (ha!) from PinkPetro.com , May 15, 2019, that explains quite a bit about Oxy’s downfall. “Because of our autonomy, we are able to identify a challenge and come up with a solution, then actually implement it from a full cycle... — read more
It's a shame to hear that Oxy employees and even some Oxy leadership are claiming partial unemployment. The Law clearly states that partial unemployment eligibility is only for those that have been forced to work less than their customary full-time... — read more
I used to giggle when I heard OXY say this. We have such a terrible reputation within the industry. I have friends at other companies that say what a pain we are to work with.
Been enjoying watching you people get what you deserve on these message boards and communicating everything I ever suspected and experienced about Oxy and their staff. Your tantrums every time I post facts and point out actual examples of your... — read more
Serious question here and wanted to see what personnel from a major oil company think about this topic. I will throw in a disclaimer, I work for a major service company. The story of major service companies in our industry for the last 20 years has... — read more
Seeing all these "denied" just means this is a one way street type of thing for Oxy. You have some HR jerk making decisions about a person's work future. They are going to come in low until you accept and then get a "good job" from their boss. The... — read more
So far I have only heard that managers are headed back plus a few other clerical employees once a week. Is anyone else? Why would badges be deactivated NOW? Why not months ago? Sounds shady.
