Thread regarding Allstate Corp. layoffs

Returning laptop

Been gone for 5 months now, and still no word on returning my monitor and laptop.

When do they usually reach out?

Could they just be so unorganized that they don’t know what equipment I have??

OP here. Some of you people are really as-----s

I did reach out to my manager right after I left, and she sent me a link to a “survey” that didn’t work, and called HR as well, who then told me to talk to my manager, who then told me to talk to HR with any questions.

Police? Nice try. This is not a legal issue here, they are making it very difficult to return there laptop.

I emailed ask HR again? But if I don’t get a response I’m not sure what else I should reasonably be expected to do.

Drop it off At the office when it opens? (My building is no longer an Allstate building?)

@1hjq+1aTc2AKx my thoughts exactly. I wouldn't want to be in possession of my previous company's equipment for that long... looks really bad, I'd have driven it up to Northbrook if I couldn't find another way to return it, just to get it out of my possession/responsibility...

Starting to see why so many people were laid off if this is how the average employee handles responsibility

Dude. That poster wasn't lying about the police. Corporate security and local police have had filings done on former employees that did not return their equipment after several months. My 57 years old former co-worker was visited by police at her home after the Allstate corporate thugs threw a police complaint on her. She was never sent a box or label.

Tell them it will be on your lawn and it’s leaving from the 2nd story window!

Your former manager should have gone into the ATSC service center on the team intranet to request a box and label be sent to you. It’s straightforward but some managers forget to do it. Send an email to AskHR@allstate.com, let them know about the situation and ask them to send you a box/label to a convenient address. Keep a record of the tracking number so you can show you sent the laptop back.

They should have sent box and label. They reported people I know to their local police after not returning for so long and police visited them about still having the equipment at least here in Texas.

They should have sent you a shipping label to return your equipment.

To answer your question, yes, they are that disorganized.

It's a complely FUBAR operation.

I was wondering about that subject. I’m retiring soon and I just figured they’d withhold my unused PTO or something like that until my equipment was returned. I know various state laws would prevent them from holding back final pay or PTO but, hey, this is Allstate!
