Thread regarding Marathon Oil Corp. layoffs

Marathon Oil Surplus Inventory Giveaway!

Be grateful for everything MRO Provides!

My question, how do I get two of the 24" monitors for my One MRO table? Would love to upgrade to a dual monitor setup to have better collaboration.

I agree with GoXa that it was so very typical MRO to waste money tossing the monitors instead of donating or even offering them to MRO employees who could use them at home for their children and WFH. At the best, recycling would have been better than tossing them into a dumpster. What a waste!!!

Typical MRO to waste money yet again. So many folks would have loved to have another monitor and if not, donate them to schools for cryin' out loud instead of tossing them.

Here's the kicker. We literally were tossing monitors in the dumpster when we were moving because they weren't needed in the new building. I'll confess a few ended up in my car and on craigslist. I scored a sweet curved widescreen for my battle station. It's crazy how wasteful this move has been on the hardware side, printers, laptops, monitors. One man's trash as they say.

Is this why somebody is so tired of people complaining about single 32" monitor that he transfers to EG?

Here's the boss move ... take your manager's monitor and hook it up on your COWORKER'S desk. Manager gets mad, has them fired, and takes their monitor back. Guess what? There's now a monitor ripe for the taking sitting right there.

Yes, it has really to come to this at MRO. Monitor Wars.

Go "borrow" one from another empty desk. Anyone asks otherwise tell them it was like that when you got to work that day....
