Thread regarding Marathon Petroleum layoffs

Disingenuous Supervisors

Many supervisors at Garyville and Texas City told severed employees that their selection was made by Findlay. This is false. Your supervisor made the selection to cut you. He / she may have been given a number of people to cut, but your supervisor should have the integrity to take responsibility for having made the decision to put you on the list.

There are a couple of exceptions, as follows:

1) Diversity being king in today’s world, certain employees were deemed sacrosanct, for obvious reasons.

2) Age discrimination in these circumstances is rampant so HR was pushing hard to get rid of ‘highly tenured’ employees, gambling that they will take the severance and move on, rather than to pursue what could be a lucrative law suit.

I know sometimes good and excellent employees have to be thrown into the mix just for legal cover. Maybe a few people who were not meant to be let go had to be laid off just in case people claim only blondes/circumcised/black/yellow/pink/whites were laid off.

I wonder if there is an algorithm that randomly selects people. Anyone from HR here or that has worked in HR would be helpful. You give me this info and I will give you the good book so you can redeem yourself for all the bad HR does hahaha. Just joking in a sense, but not the point is true. If I was in HR I would feel morally corrupt and find a new role or career.

Found out today that a gentleman that I worked with and was excellent was no longer with MCP. Honestly sometimes it feels like High School at Findlay

The buddy system was definitely at play. There are people with top performance reviews who got let go while others in the same position had been on improvement plans for performance issues and unprofessionalism stayed (but had been chatting up area managers constantly)..

Their were a lot of front line supervisors that were cut. Honestly think it was above area managers also. When you cut the guys that are the busiest and have the most experience you have no clue how your business is run at the ground level.
There were a lot that got cut that were not eligible for a severance package also.

I guarantee it was up to supervisors. And the ones who got let go out here were “a pain in the a–”

What I was told was that managers made the decisions. Essentially given a new org chart and head count from corporate and told to choose people to fill it. Supervisors were out of loop. Feels like too much leaking of information if they went down to supervisors. However, if they're saying that Findlay made all of the decisions, that's an obvious lie.

I agree. At least a couple of very talented employees were laid-off. They were hard workers that had top performance reviews and impacted the company’s bottom line.

It seemed whoever were in charge of these decisions did not take into consideration any accomplishment, attendance, work ethic or future of the company in my opinion. A lot of really good employees were let go and a lot of really bad employees were kept. I believe supervisor politics “or the buddy system” were definitely in play when it came to these decisions.
