As we look at our current society and into the future, most of Economy seems to be service driven. With all the sales of assets and purchases of electricity and alternate energy, It sure seems like it's not just a transition from oil and gas. But... — read more
If I’m right, most seem to get offers of significantly lower paid jobs? I don't know many people who got better paid jobs after Shell. I don’t like new beginnings, but I would be happy to get any decent offer. Looks like I'm going to have to move for... — read more
I was offered a job at another company but the pay is about 15 percent lower than what I'm getting now. However, the benefits are slightly better and there is (or at least there seems to be, based on my research) job security. The company is also not... — read more
Seems after round 2 the only people left jobless in jg3 and lower are those with some powerful enemies. I only see 1 out 20 amongst my surroundings. Everyone else (even technically weak) seems to have landed somewhere. What a waste of energy!... — read more
I am new to Deer Park (about 4 years). Who are the USW guys to talk to about organizing? Are we allowed to? There's about 10 of us that I know who want to organize. Possibly more. We would like to keep our jobs through this buyout process before... — read more
Anyone figured out where the 8500 job cuts are going to come from? Hoping it’s all the sales we’ve been hearing and not a real layoff
Looking back 3-years Shell stock is underperforming all other majors (stats below). This is despite strong oil & gas prices globally. Shell: -33% BP: -29% Total: -16% Exxon: -12% ConocoPhillips: -8% Chevron: -2% Q1: What is Shell doing that appears... — read more
I work in Woodcreek (well at home now). Been with Shell for the past 8 years, with 18 years of combined experience. I work in a rather niche part of IT (not cloud). While skills learned here can be applied at any other major company, the total... — read more
Anybody know ANY news going on at Shell Deer Park? I received a job offer at Shell in houston, but I read they are selling the refinery. Some of my colleagues have had jobs there in the past and said they can't sell one without the other. Is this... — read more
I work in wells in deep water in the GoM and I figured we would layoff a bunch of people but I don’t know anyone who did. So who actually got laid off???
After the disastrous town hall last Monday ( https://www.thelayoff.com/t/1btHWZTV ) the management (EV) made the decision to clarify his position on the ever so unpopular D&I, and its next iteration - DEI (or is it DIE W M?). Following his... — read more
Reshape has been tough..... for those of you who have been successful. Congrats! And for the rest, don’t lose hope yet. There were lots of new position in SRR, but looking at the org chart, I still don’t believe all positions are available at this... — read more
“We are not confident that Shell’s plan to transition to a more renewable and low-carbon business will create competitive advantages, nor that commodity prices will consistently be at levels sufficient to generate excess returns during the next 10... — read more
Given that Shell is now in the business of covering its losses via sales of its assets this feels like a sensible question.
There was a great town hall with the One Subsurface EVP (EV)! After the boring prepared highlights, the meeting promptly derailed with the top Menti question on D&I which was fumbled by EV (as per his usual M.O.), and the discussion never got back to... — read more
Be prepared to give up the work-life balance (actually, if you are single and have no life you're going to feel right at home,) do several jobs for the price of one as people leave and nobody replaces them, forget about job security, and work for... — read more
Everybody is out to get you, everybody is discriminating against you, the company hates you, the company doesn't value you... The company is not your spouse or parent to love and care for you! The company pays you to do do a job. You get the money... — read more

And I don't understand why many say they weren't surprised by the news of a possible sale of Permian? It never even crossed my mind that they could sell Permian.
I always wanted to work at Shell and I was happy when I got a job without too much experience from before. I knew that working in this industry meant a great deal of insecurity, but I could not have imagined that jobs would be this insecure. I'm... — read more
I was thinking of applying at Chevron, they have some openings in my area, but looking at their page here I'm no longer sure that'd be a good idea. They seem to have the kind of toxic environment I'd rather stay away from. But are there any O&G... — read more
I can only speak from the perspective of my work location but there are a lot less layoffs than there were last spring. Is the company really done with layoffs for the time being or are we in for a bigger wave after the summer?
BY Reuters — 10:54 AM ET 06/13/2021 By Ron Bousso, Jessica Resnick-Ault and David French (Reuters) - Oil giant Royal Dutch Shell ( RDS/A Shell is reviewing its holdings in the largest oil field in the United States for a possible sale as the... — read more
why is the supplementary round jobs list so large? are these real jobs or just token jobs to make people think they have a chance?
beyond laughable that the Shell CEO BVB actually spouts such stuff and still keeps his job. Beyond the entertainment value of such musings, how do you think this effects shareholder and employee value (rhetorical question not really asking an... — read more
Upper management has dug a deep ho-e that will be tough to get out of. Not impossible but very challenging. In my opinion the BG deal was a disaster that we still haven't recovered from. Our debt almost tripled after we acquired BG and we still... — read more
Canadian Country Chair with no technical background. Where do I sign up?
When it comes to nepotism at Shell, it’s a very old thing in this company, but in the past, despite nepotism, there was still room here for proficient employees. Unfortunately, it seems to me that the biggest problem now is that the old buddy club... — read more
I was told by a new grad that his Wells Training was cancelled and the program doesn’t exist anymore. Is that true? That means who they have will be closing the doors and wrapping things up and this energy transition stuff isn’t posturing. — read more
Hey AMLO, if you or your team are reading this - Dump the overhead now at Deer Park and opt to go the self directed path. You will pay yourselves back over 2 to 3 million a year worth in salaries alone.
Shell is an old-school company with the leadership that would like more than anything else to preserve the status quo. Do everything the same way it has been done 'since the dawn of time,' no innovation and no change required, thank you very much... — read more
Any advice for those of us looking, even though we are deemed not good enough when we put our names in the hat in the main round.
They really do not know how to run a refinery as those that they sold, returned profits. Now the question is, can they run chemicals or will it meet the same id--tic fate? Everyone knows that Chemicals are more complex and require even better... — read more
Shell has been losing money for a long time due to poor management, poor training, and poor planning. (P3) GLAD TO SEE THEM GO!! Maybe Pemex will have the cajones to fire some of these so called "leaders" the refinery is forced to keep during... — read more
By 2030, Shell must cut its CO2 emissions by 45% compared to 2019 levels, the civil court ruled. The Shell group is responsible for its own CO2 emissions and those of its suppliers, the verdict said. It is the first time a company has been... — read more
After Deerpark, I wonder what they will sell next and is it maybe Norco?
is everyone running for the fences?
Everyone complains about poor management and with a good reason. However, the truth is somehow always in the middle. Even if totally new people, top experts, appear in managerial positions tomorrow, I'm not sure they could drastically improve the... — read more
Shell Deerpark Refinery has been sold to PEMEX. Sad for all involved.
