It's been quiet for the past week or so, which left me wondering if layoffs at Whiting are done for good? Okay, let me rephrase that: if this round of layoffs is truly over? I know we'll be looking at more cuts down the line sometime, but can we... —  read more

Those that are left better beware.

I worked at Whiting and was cut before this happened. Now I'm glad because I got out ahead of this and landed another decent oil and gas job. There isn't nearly as much out there now as private equity is starting to tighten the purse strings. My... —  read more 

Age discrimination?

Well it happened agian, Layoffs in North Dakota

30 employees got cut this week. I feel bad for all that have fallen and the way Denver sends the axe is absolutely degrading and cowardly. Give the people who we have worked beside for years the dignity of a heads up and a face to face, instead of a... —  read more

Your thoughts

What are everyone's thoughts on the "asset team discipline managers". First of all I love how they create positions just to advance people I am guessing they know how to do extra favors. Second how are people that bust our asses off going to get... —  read more
