Record Retention

Does anyone know how long they hold onto personnel records before it is destroyed? I never printed out my PFT’s which were all pretty good while I was there. I don’t plan on reapplying in the near future but I’m wondering if I do reapply in the... —  read more

I'll happily volunteer

Next round, whether it's next month or next year, I'll be happy to volunteer. This place hasn't been the same since the last layoffs and I don't think it ever will be. With the economy as it is, this is not the time to just walk away but if I could... —  read more

Discriminatory layoffs?

Noticed almost every single layoff I heard about at facilities all around the country were white males only or at least >95% and not at all balanced relative to the current workforce diversity mix. Did anyone else see the same thing?


The way they treated us, keeping us in dark for so long and doing silent layoffs here and there without any clear communication about our future significantly affected our mental health and that of our families. Who has some respect for him/herself... —  read more
