Marathon was a super outstanding small company that turned itself into a terrible big company. They should have never bought all those extra oil refineries out west several years ago - a disastrous bold move that everyone but me jumped for joy over at the time. This move opened up a zillion middle management jobs - where engineers get transferred, promoted, and pretend they are oil tycoon executives. The good times are over, I'm afraid, and hopefully some of the higher up folks get canned. But that probably won't happen. I didn't hear about any massive layoff at their Findlay headquarters - just the refineries. It figures - cook the goose but spare the cook.

There were definitely a lot of folks laid off in Findlay. A lot of them disguised their terminations as “retirement”, but either way... Findlay was hit hard too.
The severance stipulates they cannot be rehired within 12 months. After a year, they can be rehired.
I believe in the past if someone accepted the severance package they were not eligible for rehire.
For the Marathon employees who were recently laid off at the Findlay office, will they be considered for rehire if the market does turn around and improve?
Indeed. As an Andeavor employee, the company was treating us wonderfully. Been a straight down hill slide with MPC - just like their stock price.
Marathon wasn’t happy ruining their own company they had to buy up as much as they could get their hands on and ruin that too. I seriously pity anyone who was acquired by this massive disaster of a culture.
