Thread regarding Chevron Corp. layoffs

I will not move from San Ramon to Houston

If they try to force us to move to Houston, I will find another job. Working for Chevron is pretty good, but it’s not worth moving to Houston to keep my job!

Dear Trolls who have RMDS (RM Derangement Syndrone) -You're no longer relevant. No one cares. Find another social media outlet to whine and pout all day on.

You won’t move from San Ramon? Let me be the first to say “You won’t be missed”.

Cool story bro. Can you make up another piece of fiction for us? Next time try harder to make it a little believable, lol.

What I have seen some clever people do is use the Chevron relo package to sell their Calif house (free of fees!), buy one they like better in Calif, buy a cheap fixer townhouse near the office in Houston (using CVX relo benefits), then commute as needed to Texas but live in Calif. if you are within ten years of retirement it is totally doable. You can get roommates or Airbnb the Houston place as needed to cover the bills and pay airfare.

Always happy for people who want to move to Texas and hope it all goes well. And thrilled when Texans decide not to move to California, enjoy your State and we’ll do the same.

@2ftz: "... Not much difference in cost of living." Clearly you're rationalizing your stuck-in-California lifestyle. Texans do not pay income tax. Sales tax about the same. Cost of living in Texas (more specifically, Houston) amongst the cheapest in the country. Should we bring up cost of housing?

Don't Blame you. Texas is a serious erosion from California socially, activity, politically and beauty. Not much difference in cost of living. Crime in Houston higher than San Ramon and valley. Houston smells and valley does not. Houston fatter. The only good thing about Houston is that they have a great baseball team (Coached by a Californian).

You don’t have to move. Just get a room in a cheap apt near the office and a book of Southwest Airline tickets. WFH unless you have to show up for a meeting. Many have done this over the years. If if gets difficult, just take an overseas roll for a few years.

We're already overloaded with Californians in Texas. The vast majority are financial refugees. Like locusts, they ruined California (and Oregon, and Washington) and will now try to ruin Texas.

Everyone I know who quit Chevron in California found a happier and better paying tech job within six months and never looked back.

Texas is a scary place for a women, if you’re trying to conceive or you have daughters.

Don't let the door knob get caught in your well lubricated and overworked posterior on your exit.

Mgmt is counting on people resigning rather than moving. It is quiet firing. No benefits.

With current interest rates, Noone wants to relocate within US. It just does not make sense to sell you House on a mortgage rate under 3% and get a new mortgage of around 7%. Who would do that?

Great. No one cares. Is there a reason you posted this on the layoff's site?

Absolutely your choice! People should make decisions for themselves based on their circumstances.
