Topics regarding layoffs at Regions Bank

How many people were let go yesterday?

Do we have any idea how bad yesterday was? And even more importantly, is it done or can we expect more notifications from Regions before the end of the week? If it really was just a few people yesterday, it could have been just the beginning... —  read more

Things that make you go hmm...

I thought the spin on Simplify and Grow was to eliminate layers of management and silly positions. How is it we now have all these “chief of staff” positions being created thru out the organization? How does leadership justify this in light of all... —  read more 

Anything new on layoffs?

I see a lot of job openings lately, which makes me think there is a chance Regions is getting ready for a major round of layoffs. It wouldn't be the first time they hired a bunch of folks to be trained ahead of a layoff. Which is really diabolical... —  read more

Will the layoffs ever end?

They keep escorting people out of the building and making us pack their things, even their personal things. We spend hours a day packing up belongings for those they payoff and then have to do our job and their job on top of it with no incentive pay... —  read more

Greed is Good

For those simplified in 2018, feel good knowing that your sacrifice helped others. Specifically it helped management and those that survived with a nice bonus that will be delivered for the $1.5 Billion in Net Income they made. I am sure the greedy... —  read more

Smart Layoffs

Regions does not want the bad rap that comes with layoffs, so they are attempting to make life a living hell so that people will quit on their own. Even the "fully staffed" branches are shorthanded because they have to cover the short-staffed... —  read more

Regions is the problem

What Regions is doing and has been doing is not investing in their people anymore. They stopped. They say that employees asked for the change but I’m not sure what employees they are talking about. It certainly is not the retail side. They were the... —  read more 

So sad Regions

Regions is laying off and forcing the wrong people out. The ones that are staying behind are destroying Regions Bank. There is no proper training in any roll at Regions and the only bit of training they provide is around banker integrity. They watch... —  read more

Bad Bad Regions Bank

Horrible what Regions is doing to their employees and their clients. Never seen anything like it. Their warm banking feeling has disappeared. The employees look like washed out zombies whenever I would go into a branch. My banker after many years... —  read more 

Greedy, Cowardly Sons of B--ches

No reason for official layoff at Regions Bank

No reason to officially layoff since everyone is being forced to quit before they get fired for not meeting impossible goals. The employees that are left are no longer happy because they are being stretched thin trying to cover the shorthanded... —  read more

Evergreen 2018 is the Fakest and Worst Ever!

Where to go if laid off?

Who out there is willing to hire older workers and pay them what they are worth in experience and knowledge? It looks like those two things are no longer important. Everybody is willing to employ people who want to work for cheap and that's it... —  read more
