Thread regarding TransCanada Corp. layoffs

Has TC lowered the criteria when hiring?

This is just one example - TC got rid of a man who was very skilled, capable and from whom many of us could learn a lot. Now, instead, my colleague is a person whose skills are so bad that I don’t even know how that person got the job here in the first place. I respect everyone, I'm not the best employee ever, but is it possible that TC lowered the criteria so much when hiring? Where is this company headed with people like that?

Noticed their hiring a lot of folks. Did a lot take retirement or did they go overboard laying folks off and now their short handed.

You are right... every employee is a number and you are only fooling yourself if you think otherwise.

There’s no “irreplaceable” person out there. Anyone can be easily replaced, no exception. Contributions of employees are “marginal” and impact of one person who was let go is minimal

Don't be surprise, do you think companies really care about the individual? They preach but they don't practice unless it benefits them. I also blame the employees, you can't put your faith into a company that its sole purpose it so make money, you have to look at it as a business as well, you leave when your time is up and move on. These people who complain want to hide out and get paid to do nothing. Those jobs are long gone with the unions.

I'm amazed every time someone is shocked when a company lays off a very expensive employee to save money. Yes, it sucks that the loss is very real in terms of knowledge and skill, and it will take a long time for anyone to get up to their speed again. And when they do? If the company needs to save on payroll, they'll be let go and the cycle starts again. It's just business. As nice as it is to hang onto employees forever, sometimes you just can't afford it. If the job can technically be done by whomever remains, and if they can drag some new folks who learn bits and pieces along the way, that'll do.

Seems like they do that a lot. Especially if you know more than your manager! How can a company hire folks off the street when they have good people laid off or released, who know the jobs, rules and regulations? I am fortitude I don't need to work since laid off in March. You feel bad for the folks who needed to work.
