Thread regarding HP (Hewlett-Packard) layoffs

Come back home, my beloved daughters and sons...

... Things will be so different this time, so come back to papa. Much lower salaries, less benefits, at least 70% of the population 25 years old or younger... You know this is what you want. Come on... Give me a hug!

DXC Technology will be hiring 2,000 people in New Orleans in the next 2 years with at least 300 of those jobs hired by the end of FY18....

OP’s, TY for the info. Used to work much with R&D printhead engineers late 90’s Corvallis. Did they ever get the “ SMIF” pods/system to work? Had 300mm si wafers then. I worked in IC test which used HP9000 testers. Before then, Teradyn. I miss it. Gas from the past. My best to all.

The pagewide web press printers are not for consumers but are made for commercial printing. They cost about $8 million each. HP is selling a lot of these and more designs are in the works.

The pagewide printers available for consumers are garbage, just look at the reviews on amazon. Oh wait, all the printers are garbage and overpriced inks.

Thank you for the info. When I let HP Corvallis, ICBD was occupieng Bldg 2 (seen by the amber lithography lights via Hwy 20). Fastfab div., IJBU was in full force. Do you know if IJBU took over All the clean rooms including ICBD? I hear that HP Inc has a print head/carteridge that prints a whole page at a time? Fascinating if true. Dose Corvallis also fabricate the 3D technology/process? I truly miss Corvallis HP. I was part of the Agilent split, then WFR out in early 2002. I was in my thirties, went back to school, and carried on but in a different direction.

I don't know if the Fabs (cleanrooms) are running at the Corvallis site. I do know they are making other products not in the cleanrooms, Non-experienced production workers are being paid $12 an hour. Techs, QA and other staff brought in by staffing companies are paid at double that amount. Job duration is from a few months to 2 years depending on the contract the staffing agency has with HP. Some have clauses that a temp can't be hired by HP and others are being screened to become HP employees. Again, this depends on the type of staffing agency that HP has hired.

Corvallis site seems to be hiring again. Mostly through staffing agencies but they are paying a lot higher than they use to. If you worked there, you know the routine. It is an R&D site only. Once the product has been developed, tested and several prototypes built and out at customers, the manufacturing part is shipped out of the country.

Are there any current/passed employees whom work at the Corvallis site in the silicon fabs? Any employees that helped head up the "Fast-Fab"., old IJBU? When I left just before Y2K the IJBU division was $$. Much appreciate any feedback. TY and God Bless.
