Thread regarding Hy-Vee layoffs

Question for those who were laid off recently

I don't know if some of you still visit this page from time to time or not, but in case you are, do you mind sharing if you were able to find a new job already? If the answer is yes I'm not going to ask where, but if you feel like volunteering that information, that'd be great.

I was laid during the 2020. On the first laid off stages. I was with the company for 23 years. But now I am making lot more money. And like my job now.

Hey, to the person that said they found something new and improved their life, RIGHT ON! I'm soooo happy for you, quality of life is a thing we tend to under rate and shouldn't. Cuz at the end of the day what's the point? Good for you, break those shackles and be free!

I was laid off in the first round near the end of March. I accepted a job offer and started a new job the first week in May. I now have MUCH better work/life balance, the pay is similar and my health has started to improve.

Never worked there, but I'll share...
I was laid off - been out of work for slightly over a month...
Company offered "outplacement services" which includes career coaching...
I didn't think I would need it - but I got turned down for 2 "seasonal" jobs - which I'm way, way overqualified for....applied just for money, and while I look for something more permanent

I've been meeting with a career consultant for about a month..I want to change industries

Lots of what they say in these meetings is overly optimistic, pie-in-the sky type stuff... like anything is possible, you can do anything if you put your mind to it, apply for anything etc

I'm a person that believes if I set a plan, I can accomplish it... but linkedin shows that things are brutal- over 100 people applying for the same job? almost 300? numerically - it is crazy...

please take comfort knowing you are not alone. typing out this message made me feel better. if you have been laid off, I encourage you to do the same. the idea in the media that "no one wants to work" needs to be debunked. it is not true.
