https://www.nationalreview.com/the-morning-jolt/why-diesel-fuel-costs-are-really-rising/ Great article on how recently closed refineries are affecting fuel supply. The article mentions Alliance - “Phillips 66, for example, would have to spend more... — read more
A Thursday 8am town hall meeting with mgmt on hand to answer questions afterward. 60-day WARN?
If they increase the amount of diversity training, that will help the bottom line.
Never lull yourself into a false sense of security. You're not safe as long as there's somebody in another country who's willing to do your job for a fraction of what you make. This has been happening for years and this will continue to happen... — read more
Most likely outcome: consolidate similar functions, and then solicit EOI due to redundancy. Finally a layoff to reach the reduction goal. IT’s attrition is better than expected lately, likely most people are waiting for EOI. The market could not be... — read more
Since layoffs usually come after a bad earnings report, what are the chances we're in for some cuts after today? I've been looking around and from what I can see, things are looking good ahead of the investors' call, but you can never be certain when... — read more
Communication? Flexibility? Technical knowledge? Networking? What do you think?
Winter is coming!
Why in the world would you worry about layoffs at a time like this? Things have never been better for O&G than they are now. Relax and enjoy it while it lasts (and it will last for a while, I think we can all see that). I don't understand people who... — read more
I have heard IT and Finance will get hit with layoffs. I have also heard Procurement will get laid off. Any insights to which departments will get hit with layoffs? I have also heard of more finance restructuring, not sure if that means layoffs or... — read more
This new guy isn’t great at keeping the bad news under wraps.
I'd like to know how the bloated middle management always survives layoffs? There are so many layers that could easily be removed and yet in 99% of situations, they're not affected by layoffs. Makes you think who really makes the decisions when it... — read more
That resulted in Valero's fourth-quarter refining margin jumping to $3 billion from $1.1 billion a year earlier, portending bright scenarios for peers Marathon Petroleum (MPC.N) and Phillips 66 (PSX.N) that are yet to report... — read more
I was part of the layoff earlier this month and another large portion of the employees are set to depart next Wednesday. A rumor circulating at the site is that Marathon toured the facility recently and is close to a deal on purchasing the refinery. ... — read more
I'm not sure what happened here, but where once you could be certain that hard work would result in career advancement now it's no longer true. That leaves very few reasons to remain here instead of looking to move to a company where I could move my... — read more
Sad situation. Bob Herman goes to the refinery a month or so before the terminal announcement and tells the employees that the refinery will be running again in the spring either by P66 or a new owner. Comes back a few weeks later and lays everyone... — read more
What are your thoughts about potential Phillips 66 layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
What an asinine idea. Herman & Company botched the sale and now this idea just when refining is heating up again. Maybe trying to shake down the state and local officials for tax breaks/incentives??
Everyone just received a terribly worded email from HSE guy saying basically our company is folding like a cheap suit to the unconstitutional OSHA vaccine mandate. The email basically said we doubt the testing option will work for us so get the shot... — read more
P66 is embracing Bidens (OSHA’s) Emergency Temporary Standard and will be forcing employees to vaccinate or pay the consequence. The government is turning corporations into the VAX police, why is P66 rolling over and complying with this obvious... — read more
Any thoughts on AE66 2.0? If you read the email, it's all about cost cutting. I've heard they want to cut costs by $1.0B. Kind of hard to do without layoffs.
Anyone else hearing Bayway and Los Angeles are on the chopping block next after Alliance is gone?
Hi, Did P66 layoff any employees since COVID-19 has started and how many? I can't find this info anywhere. Also, what about Chevron?
Do we know when the next round will happen?
Who will it be?
Has anyone worked at Chevron Phillips or know anybody that works there? Is this a good company to work for? Good compensation? How often are the layoffs there? Thanks I know they are a JV with Chevron and Phillips 66
Does anyone know if there will be a lot of layoffs after the purchase of Alliance? What will happen to the people working in the facility?
Looking at getting a position here. Anything I should know? Any boss issues? Or is it ok
Anyone know who the potential buyer may be?
Situation developing, expecting big changes.
Does it also seem to you that talented people have never stayed in this company as short as now? I am glad when such people go as soon as possible to a place where they can better develop their skills, but it is sad what the company has turned into... — read more
Isn't creating special opportunities and programs the same as telling someone they couldn't possibly succeed based solely on their merits and intellect.
A colleague of mine just took another job for 30 percent less pay. And he is overjoyed. I know people are not happy here but are they really THAT unhappy? That's a significant difference I personally couldn't afford, but for him it was worth it. Do... — read more
Despite our $509 million Q1 loss, there's absolutely nothing to be worried about. After all, look at all the inclusion and diversity we have! Rest well, as our financial standing goes down the drain, that we did it as Forbes 178th Best Employer for... — read more
Think about it this way: if you are laid off you get a nice chunk of change to help tide you over until you find a new job, and whatever you find is bound to be better than this place. It's not as if you'd be leaving a good workplace that respects... — read more
"In the coming months, some of the 60 employees and 15 contractors will be moved to other positions within the company, with others being laid off, according to a statement from the company. The number being laid off is... — read more
I just read a Tulsa World article saying there would be about 60 people payed off in Procurement in Bartlesville. I used to work in that organization and if I remember correctly, there were only 80 some people. What jobs are being outsourced? ... — read more
