No guarantee that people forced out in MOR will get 3 weeks. I've been with Shell for 6 years and been through 2 MORs. In the past, the people that were forced out got the same as the people that volunteered. But these are different times....cash... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Shell Oil
Does anyone have any details on this OR batch? Heard about from my line manager after being told I was unmapped for Avanti, and they spoke about it briefly in today's global wells townhall.
Unmapped being told “competitive” in group for jobs that will be posted. Seems like they don’t want us to realize that we’ve effectively been laid off. Is there a chance to actually land a job with the company?
So I am a mid-career employee in the US, and have good visibility into the biggest money making divisions in the US upstream. Is it me, or was the whole repatriation story a bit of a scam? A few technical folks are getting sent back (no more senior... — read more
Hi all, Buisness analyst Relatively new to shell (less than 1 year) from college. My buisness line is going to do a reorg. I have a job offer at a manufacturing facility and they are not flexible with their start date. Should I take it and leave... — read more
How are employees selected to be mapped?
Will the reorg happen after SVS is completed? Is a forced MOR planned by Q4?
How many % they want to cut? Any ideas?
I am in an IT group in Houston. I have 6 years with Shell, (14 years in IT overall) all in JG5. Is there a set criteria to go from JG5 to JG4. I talked to my manager 2 years ago and got an ambugious response.
Hi Everyone, Recently got the “you’re at risk” speech and weighing my options. Is it better to take SVS now (3 weeks/yr) or wait till after the MOR postings and get fired (historically 3 weeks/yr but not sure.) Does this change if you can... — read more
Any volunteers? Location? Business Unit? Job Grade?
You’ve probably seen Ben’s note today (May 20). What do you think is coming?
Just heard once staff layoffs are complete Shell will be going after hourly personnel
I personally think that no more layoff because oil price is $30. Somebody tells me otherwise.
any rumors about layoffs in the loyalty program division? Anyone can help me with informations to calculate the risk to get fired?
Shell's plan to sell two more refineries in Anacortes, WA and Mobile, AL. They unloaded the complex and lucrative Martinez, CA in January. Suppose the integrations with the mid and upstream assets perhaps it makes sense to hold onto the last 3... — read more
Any rumors about Downstream Canada - SVS not an option fir Manfg. Is that good or bad?
Will the May MOR be the standard JG 2 and above roles and expat roles? Or will there be additional roles baked in?
Do you think the higher-ups will come up with a name as s-xy as Avanti? It makes me feel better when they use buzzy acronyms to tell me my family won’t have an income soon.
It's going to be krakow and manila for sure. Why pay someone 4000 gbp when abroad it can be done for 900? Jobs will still need to be done, and activities carry on. What do you propose will happen to these positions? They magically don't be needed... — read more
Farmers Insurance just announced all employees nationwide are to work from home until the end of the year. More and more large companies are making these proclamations. Will Shell and other energy companies follow suit?
Expat positions cost Shell a ton of $$. STIAs not as much, but still a high cost. Shouldn't they be recalling as many exPats as possible right now? And STIAs as well? Or does anyone know of any businesses/functions that are already doing this?
There are massive 20 to 25 percent cuts planned in Chevron's TPS (Technology, Projects and Services) group. I think it may not be as bad here but it tells you something. See the thread here https://www.thelayoff.com/t/14Q7YjqK or here @OP+14Q7YjqK
Voluntary layoffs will begin mid May... Reorg layoffs will begin in June... Layoffs will end by end of August...

Does the dividend cut slow down or speed up the timeline for layoffs in 2020?
Saw another new hire post here. I have less than a year working here, Houston office. I am a mechanical engineer, and I get sh– done, resourceful etc. I had job offers at different companies coming out of college other than Shell that were not oil... — read more
Heard that each Country Chair will be sending out a note sometime in May announcing that voluntary severance packages will be offered in the near term. Not sure how much those packages will be, but for those that were looking to retire soon anyway... — read more
The main reason of the lay off comes from oil overflow and out of space for storage. There is a propose solution. Get all the cars in the world out to fill up the tank for free for the next 3 months (as a start). This will let the refineries... — read more
Copied from OXY site. How much of monthly expenses should you have in case of a layoff. 3-6 months? Or more?
I think we all know layoffs are coming without a doubt. Wondering when? And how deep? I'm thinking July 2020. 20% of staff. What do you guys think? Thanks!
Joined Shell (Houstom office) last summer out of college. Just curious if layoffs will happen this year? And what's the process? Thanks.
Does not look good
Deepwater and Shell pipeline are being rumored to be sold. Sad times. Good luck.
Have been hearing that there will be cuts this upcoming year to all business units. Sad times!!! Any update on these?? Over head my manager talking about business wide cuts.
Hi guys, I'm currently interviewing for technology positions and wanted to see if anyone could post information around pay grades. What is the pay grade and pay range for a Senior IT manager type position? Thank you.

If there was ever any doubt about Shell's view of fuels in the U.S. it's very clear now. They were down to 4 wholly owned refineries in the U.S, Martinez, Anacortes, and two in New Orleans. They are 50/50 owners of the Deer Park Houston refinery with... — read more
