Thread regarding Whiting Petroleum Corp. layoffs

This can't last for much longer

Since I started working here three years ago my work has more than doubled - at no extra pay of course. The management just keeps piling up more on my already full plate. It's not enough that people who leave are not replaced - they're adding to the issue by laying off people and transferring their work on the rest of us. How the f— are we supposed to get to all of that?

That’s the unfortunate part about what they did. They let as many people go that were higher paid, getting vested into the company & gaining ground and who wanted to grow. Then they spread those jobs out on the new guys that were happy to keep their position. They played it perfectly. Now that jobs are getting hard to find they take more money away from you all. Now they will be planning department budgets, which will decide who gets laid off next. The field jobs should be getting more and more automated. I see companies that run very few operators. A lot of companies cut costs by using 3 rd party for services . As soon as they get everything back in line and a big ConocoPhillips throws Exxon money at them you can say adios to Whiting. That’s why they need to bring out the cheese grater and run some people through it. It’s sad.

Every time they’ve had a layoff they end up with more managers and less doers. The level of incompetence is staggering. Get out as soon as you can. The ship is on fire, it’s sinking, and the fuel tank is on the verge of explosion. There is life after Whiting. I will pray for the lost souls who go down with the ship. Some may have gained higher titles, but they’ve lost credibility and will have a hard time getting hired after it’s all over. Big fish in a small sewage pond.
