The company does have opportunities especially at senior leadership level (like a new CEO and new executives who has the capability and skills to run a company in the 21st century). But we live in a capitalistic society enjoying its varied benefits and this is nothing but a sad side effect of those luxuries afforded on us by the same society. So the only thing to do at this point, although very painful and difficult, is to swallow the bitter pill, acquire better skills, downsize, possibly take a step down in ones career and start fresh. One thing I know for a fact is that there was no discrimination in the process and merit was the main consideration in most eliminations except for a handful of pure political ones

PLEASE, SEI have been disingenuous from the beginning. Someone left a blank check on the desk and overpaid for Speedway. Speedway was profitable. but not 21 billion profitable. 7 eleven messed with the model immediately and just as fast sales plummeted The only big winner was Marathon. Unfortunately, we the employees as always get to pay for their party. Sad end for so many long- term dedicated people. To the comment downsize and step back you are an id--t. Joe Depinto and his ilk will not have to downsize anything or step-back and start fresh.
You are delusional.
Is that you Joe, or is that Jack Stout? Or Chris Tanco?
Ok, this is the worst advice to give anyone regardless of layoff status. You obviously are in a leadership role or at least appear to write like one at 7-11 (Not a compliment). This is exactly the issue at 7-11. The years of poor leadership, strategy and execution has caught up with Joe and his entourage.
Would this be the same message you would tell yourself if you were laid off?
You know this for a fact how exactly? To know that for a fact you would have to be in HR leaking this information on a random website as an anonymous contributor.
