Thread regarding Halliburton Co. layoffs

Returning to Halliburton

If somebody was laid off can they reapply for a job down the line? A friend who was part of my team was planning on applying for an opening but he isn't sure if they're just going to ignore his application. I had no idea what to tell him since I don't know even remotely how those things work. Should he try? Does he have a chance?

The papers you sign when they lay you off basically say don't get your hopes up for rehire, without expressly forbidding it. I wonder if they are reluctant to bring people back in case for the risk of hard feelings, but I have seen people come back in one form or another.

Why? Most of the time management will lowball you on your pay when they bring you back knowing your desperation for employment. They definitely wouldn't bring you back at a higher pay rate.

Being impacted by a reduction in force does not make someone ineligible for rehire. Usually being a former employee is actually considered a benefit when applying for positions, if there weren't issues before.
