Layoffs July 2023

Heard they cleaned house once again. Over 200 field reps, 3 vp’s 6 directors. Some real shockers such at director of facilities although rightly so. He was pretty ineffective. Who has the skinny on this round?

No layoffs make me nervous

We're due a round and with no mention of coming layoffs, I'm starting to get nervous. You know what they say about the calm before the storm... Unlike many of you, I like my job and I have no intentions to leave unless I'm forced out. Hopefully, that... —  read more 


The Company hired a SMO (Separation Manager Official). Employees were not notified of the Veyer Company change on their paychecks.

When will this end?

Two more locations are closing in NJ. How many is that this year? I've lost count. Why isn't management doing anything to make sure closings are not necessary? Do they not care? I'm tired of thinking about layoffs and possible closings 24/7. What... —  read more

Pay doesn’t cut it anymore

Has anyone else seen a cut in hours? I have seriously gone down to less than 30 hours a week, when previously I had 32+ hours consistently. This has definitely cut into my living expenses and I am at a total loss on what to do. I’ve cut back on a lot... —  read more
