Thread regarding Range Resources Corp. layoffs

Range Resources Lays Off in North Louisiana

And the axe continues to cut. The stiffs came from FT. Worth on Friday to North LA today and started cutting management folks. Had security present and sheriff's department cars waiting to carry people home. Didn't even allow the laid off employees a chance to get their personal belongings from their company trucks or even their offices/desks. No severance pay or anything. Couldn't even call their spouses from their company cell phone to say "Hey honey, I'm on my way home in a cop car because I've lost my job and all my company stuff so don't be too alarmed when we pull up and become the talk of the neighborhood." Very disappointing.

Probably more to come. MRD sold RRC a bill of goods. They are going to take a huge write down on reserves in N LA.

How is sending personnel home in a Sherriff's vehicle appropriate?! This makes me angry. Those people had no access to a phone to make other arrangements - that is not American or Christian. I guess if you are used to being transported in a cop car, it is no big deal to you. And, if my law enforcement resources are being diverted for the likes of Range Resources, I don't support this - I don't care what money was paid - my taxes trump Range's beckoning. This takes "Riding for the [Range] Brand to a whole new low." (You know to whom I am refer.)

Wow, Live & Learn! Lay offs in large numbers in multiple locations at Range is an indication of the poor performance (at the direction of Upper Management) not misdeeds of the mass of personnel let go. If those folks did something wrong, you must think there was a wide conspiracy between the NLa and North Marcellus (Ft Worth) groups. Wow, paronoid much! The only conspiracy is how the "break up" is handled by RR - there was no "can we still be friends?" there was instead, "you s---, I don't love you any more, this is all your fault!" Live & Learn to those who don't have the emotional maturity to handle poor performance of a company.

The Management that was cut was cut for reasons they know....... Think about that before blaming RRC. When you do stuff your not supposed to you get fired. Live & Learn!

I was one of the crew for NLA. They cut 7 of us Monday, then our Operations Manager from Houston on Tuesday Morning. They currently don't have anyone in the NLA operation that knows what is going on.

I'm really disappointed in Range. When John Pinkerton was in charge they had a conscience and were a good place to work. They've lost their class.

From someone who has worked in upper management, I am sure they reimbursed the parish Sheriff for any expenses their department incurred in assisting in the process. I'm not advocating what RRC did but LA is a right to work state and as such any company can fire at will w/o cause but for a few federal and state listed discriminatory reasons.

What parish sherriff's department would allow their public resources to be used in this manner? Especially harsh, even for Range but really in character of RR's HR department and Senior management.
