Thread regarding Kellogg layoffs

Laid off !! Can’t believe they did this right before the holidays last day of work is Dec 31st

Just got laid off via phone . I have been a very loyal and hardworking employee for +10 years .. I can honestly say that I have learned a lot and met some great people with the Kellogg company . But I also can honestly say that the direction they are going in is completely garbage .. all of the good people who actually knew how to run the company were let go over the past few years and the people who are left don’t know sh-- about the business .

It will be very difficult for them to attract good talented people with the reputation they have made for themselves cutting jobs every year and sometimes twice a year .. anyone with any sense would not come to work for Kellogg’s ....good luck finding good quality people!!

They are also selling off the Keebler and fruit snacks business which is also a very bad sign of worse things to come for the employees that are left .... good luck to all of those affected..

also laid off on a conference call from Kellogg's when they eliminated dsd. I heard from somebody in sales that there will be more layoffs when the completion of the cookie sale goes through in August.

It's apparent the top brass is milking the company for themselves. Another once great company being run into the ground over greed and mismanagement. I've worked hourly for the company and can see the situation from a different angle. They are hell bent on breaking the Union, Battle Creek 1st, then rotate to the other US plants. Moving product around then rehiring with lower wages and benefits. Productivity has increased across the board, but as usual those gains will pad the pay of executives. And they call that restructuring or reorganizing. Look at John Bryant's walkaway package! While they claim the shareholders are demanding more in return. Misleaders of the truth...better known as liers.

Settle down Ken Miller. This is a blessing in disguise as it gets you back to Florida.

30 year vetern here, 1st hired on with Keebler co. And then thru 2 buy outs, 2nd

Being Kelloggs.

Heard of the direct to warehouse 1 year before it was announced by an ex-D.M.

Brought it up at 2 meeting and the notion was shot down. So when that day came I was not surprised.

KEEP MOVING FORWARD AND LOOK FOR A BETTER COMPANY.

Anyone who continues to work for this toxic company is a fool to think it’s going to get any better.Get you resumes in order and find something more rewarding. I was let go in 2016 and I have never looked back and have peace of mind instead of constant tension

What was your role that you were paid off from?

Many others in your shoes as well. Selling the businesses mentioned will reduce Kellogg debt and allow some type of acquisition/merger. Just like with Kraft, they are milking the place. This is just the beginning - more stages to come. I believe something will happen with Coke eventually.
