What are the chances that some of the people who were laid off during the pandemic will be called back once the situation settles a bit? With the economy the way it is, plenty of us haven't been able to find new jobs yet. I actually know just one person who did, the rest who were let go from my group are still looking. It would be nice to have some hope we might get a call back.

I wouldn't think you would be called back and depending on timing you might have to repay your severance if you did. If they post a job it's still worth applying though if your PTSD from working there isn't too bad. I reapplied (partly just to keep qualifying for unemployment) but was relieved to get a job elsewhere.
Trying to go back to UHC is like trying to get back with an abusive partner. Move on! It’s not easy to find another job but it’s possible with determination. I say it from experience. They don’t deserve you. Don’t belittle your worth
Why would you want to go back there? It's a big world.
Keep reapplying if you’re interested. I was laid off Jan 2020 and was back in the door by mid Feb (with a much better position)
Do not get your hopes up you will get a call back for a job. This will never happen. Move on. There’s a lot of jobs out there.
Well said. I realized that working really hard gets you nowhere with UHC. Best to do just the minimal work that is required.
You will NOT be called back unless in your area a bunch of people resign and quit and they are desperate for workers. In fact, no one in the organization will touch you since they do not want to be connected with a person that was laid off.
You are the black sheep of the company. Now if you land a great job at another company, your peers will try to contact you to get them a good job at your new company.
Only a very small percent of the company gets laid off. Could be due to political reasons, your boss hates you, you make too much money, you are old and have been with the company a long time, or anything else.
This is not a layoff like disneyland where they had no customers to serve. This is the way they shake out the rug to get rid of the little pieces of dirt. And no one in the organization wants to hire dirt.
I know. You worked hard. You made lots of contributions to the company. But as they would say, this is a business decision. Another boss would keep you. This one got rid of you. Yes, it is personal and yes it is business. Decisions are personal more than they are business. But they say it is a business decision.
You probably have to take a job with less money. You may not like the new job. Maybe you find a great company with a great boss. Maybe.
