Does anyone think we will have layoffs again? If so, when?
Topics regarding layoffs at Occidental Petroleum Corp.
Does anyone actually think we will get bonuses next month? I think we will but they will be a lot smaller.
and i am sure i heard VH had tested positive for stupid? Did anyone else in the meeting hear it as well? It was last week in the daily "lets all tell everyone what a great job i am doing on the WFH program and that i need my boss to give me more... — read more
I just checked my Citibank account for my salary payment and its a big fat zero !!! I dont recall any notification from HR - Anyone else not getting paid?
https://twitter.com/BW/status/1349486683012673536 Oxy can't even recycle their batteries consistently or their paper properly. Yet they are going to recycle carbon to pump crude. Lol
Any people in the know wanna chime in?
Wish I could find the post of guys telling me my Oxy warrants were going to expire worthless. Looks like they are in the money today with six years left until expiration.
Anyone having problems calling Oxylink? It is perpetual hold for both yesterday and today.
Where do i find out? Will stupid VH know?
Anyone hear what was acquired in GoM? There was a mention of a acquisition in a meeting last week and was just wondering. Thanks!
Did any other Oxy retirees wake up this morning to find that Oxy retiree medical/dental costs increased. My bill from PayFlex went up almost 50% compared to last month. Been retired on x1 family retiree rate since November.
Has anyone who took the VSP figured out how to ethically and legally get the most recent stimulus check or the next one? It seems like most VSPers have been all paid out and are no longer drawing an income this year. We are no different than a... — read more
Having major layoffs last January right before the pandemic hit was some majorly bad timing (unintentionally) for those affected. I'm guessing they didn't have many options for other employment for a while unless they started looking right away... — read more
How many can say something positive without including a criticism or insult? My guess is very few.
Dont seem to be too concerned
Another leader (LAPC Director) is packing up and leaving for a competitor as things just don't seem to be getting better in the GOM group. Not much to see here folks, just a mismanaged group run by incompetent / arrogant executive. Safety is as... — read more
The stock prices of major and big independents Vs time are similar to that of Oxy. The entire sector is rotten now and is probably not a great investment. Maybe that is obvious. Wait 6 months then things might turn around.
Looks like the WFH will continue for at least through Q1 so you can continue to get another 3 months off. Not a bad gig to work from home, get paid a lot of money, and still get bonuses.
Public records show Oxy sold about 40,000 net acres to PE backed Forged Energy II in Reeves and Pecos Counties. I believe this is the same acreage they bought for $40,000 per acre from J. Cleo et al in 2016 Wonder how much they sold per acre ... — read more
While working here, I knew that management was not the best, but I always had doubts that I might not be the best worker either. In fact, I mostly blamed myself. Some things are probably not seen clearly when you are here, so only when you leave... — read more
*Even after Covid the oil business will never be the same as it was pre-Covid as there were many buyouts, mergers, vsp, retirements, and layoffs. So many people are out of work and available that Oxy could have their pick of candidates. Actually, it... — read more
Given the companies demise is one example of karma, I can't believe how many at Oxy have been affected by Covid. Its simply poetic and brings so much justice to a company that thinks they can take the lives of people born differently through bullying... — read more
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! That’s the post. That’s it and I mean it.
OXY spends money like a drunken sailor in Vegas. OXY should stop everything and everyone to clear this debt in 2021. No spending, maintenance only, and clean house
I got a nice package last year, so I’m not at all complaining. BUT...I only have a year left of payments and job prospects look bleak given the economy and my age. Anyone experiencing this too? This first year went by so fast. I’m just getting a... — read more
Wish you all a very happy Xmas and new year. So much to look forward in the new year. Vaccine, life back to normal, oil in $50s, eligible people taking jobs in hand and ineligible people shipped to golf course 😛.
How many of you are current employees vs non-employees. Vote up for employee, down for non-employee.
No, Oxy is NOT re-hiring peeps who took the VSP!! Quit asking and starting hurtful rumors! I know this to be true because like I said in an earlier post, I actually work HR at Oxy! Sheesh
More retirements More quitting Goodbye LOXY you are left holding the sh– stick
How high will it get by year's end? Most are happy for the industry and the company. A few are disappointed. Which one are you??
Any info on the reorg that is supposed to be announced by end of year? What is the “US Prod Ops Organization” supposed to be? Hoe will all the newly-created teams in the new development arm be staffed?
How stable is The Woodlands office location? Im iterested in a Job opening (Technical Security Coordinator) but hesitant to apply due to layoffs in the industry.
Why did Oxy not file a WARN notice on layoffs in 2020? Both Exxon and ConocoPhillips have. There must be some difference in the number of layoffs or some other technicality. It seems like they all would give the 60 days pay no matter what so it... — read more
We need to all protect our industry and educate the ignorant people. We all need to pull together and defend our industry, or we will not have an industry. I will never buy a product NF. If you get a paycheck from Oxy or any other oil company it is... — read more
I want to wish everyone on this site a happy holiday season. Don't let the handful of Karens on this site that post the same thing over and over again get to you. If you check any company's board from Google to Chevron to Tesla and Conoco, there's... — read more
I’m at a loss for words. Its simply astonishing how utterly disorganized and unoptimized their IT infrastructure and processes are. Every day is a seemingly impossible new low. At some point I might have to throw in the towel for sanity’s sake. — read more
Tesla to replace OXY on the S&P 100. Well done all!

We are legacy APC with VSP and Some are offered to get hired back either as employee or contractor . We know it’s ethically wrong but, do we risk in losing VSP package?
Since the company is not laying off it must be doing well. Since it is doing well let’s bring back the dividend so common stockholders get at least as much as WB does.
