So supposed rumors are Marathon is in the hunt. That makes sense with the cards they hold, hush hush could be a big new deal and everyone will find out at the click of the heels. Guess we will wait for the great Oz to reveal the outcome.
Topics regarding layoffs at Whiting Petroleum Corp.
Every time they’ve had a layoff they end up with more managers and less doers. The level of incompetence is staggering. Get out as soon as you can. The ship is on fire, it’s sinking, and the fuel tank is on the verge of explosion. There is life after... — read more
Starting to hear the rumblings of an oasis/whiting merger. Who does everything think will be running it.
Hello everyone. I'm a freelance journalist in the Denver area and some of my work as been published in a local business journal. One of my colleagues is currently working on a story about favors and protection within the HR department. While that... — read more
Reading these posts it's obvious that so many of you despise your jobs. If that's the case, why don't you quit? Nobody is forcing you to be here. I like my job. I like having a job when the economy is far from ideal. But if I didn't, nothing could... — read more
I always knew that HR was never there because of the employees, but I hoped that maybe in some cases they could be a place of support and help for us. What a mistake. They simply do not take our interests into account at all. I had a little problem... — read more
When the next round of layoffs happen, the guy in charge of HR will stare coldly into your eyes while an outside consultant reads a prepared statement explaining your severance package benefits. No compassion and no remorse. He wants to see how much... — read more
Honestly, sometimes flipping burgers at McDonalds seems like a preferable option to this place. I'm so tired of the constant stressing, politics, nepotism over merit, corrupt managers... It never ends. I don't see how things could get much worse than... — read more
I survived the last RIF after only being here for two years. I've never experienced anything like this. The company has been in constant disarray since the day I hired on. For all the talk about "culture" and "values" since I got hired on, they... — read more
This has all got to come crashing down soon. They laid off their technical people in operations. They promoted people to those positions who honestly don't know what the fahk they are doing. Every efficiency they had gained over the past years... — read more
What's new on possible February cuts?
Since I started working here three years ago my work has more than doubled - at no extra pay of course. The management just keeps piling up more on my already full plate. It's not enough that people who leave are not replaced - they're adding to the... — read more

Has anyone heard anything about the next round?
No one is posting anything is everyone just to disgusted to talk about it anymore. Ya I would be to. It’s a dead end road, but it’s a job right. Just waiting it out until I can get hired on and get the f$&( out of this sh?(( hole .
Holly should be giving a thank you speech to everyone for making him a lot of money. He can sit there and say “ ohh well I tried “ thanks as he sits there with that sh– eating grin. Now everyone can sit back and wait for all the changes, good luck... — read more
Well they blamed Mr. Volker saying he was the reason the ship was sinking. I guess that theory was debunked, now the high and mighty Holly really knocked a hole in the side of the ship. In fact looks like he removed the whole floor, to many hired... — read more

Anybody else scared they'll have major layoffs right now when everybody is furloughing employees to make sure it flies under the radar?
Word on the street in the Denver O&G community is Whiting is doing everything possible to set themselves up for a buyout. OXY has apparently been sniffing around so we shall see. All I will say is Whiting folks better save away those over... — read more

It seemed like there was a lot of hiring happening and now there’s layoffs? What gives? What changed?
Let that sink in.
Will Whiting be packing it up and allowing them to pick it up? It's a very low class move on Whiting's part to lay people off and not allow for them to pick personal possessions. I imagine Whiting would have to give back the possessions some... — read more
Our current CEO is a joke. How long before stockholders realize he's an incompetent one trick pony?
This is an old saying from Wall Street. In a bull market, one with high oil prices, one can make money through prudent development and growth. In a bear market, one with low oil prices, one can make money through cutting down on new drills... — read more
Whiting is going bankrupt. You know it, I know it, everyone knows it. What Holly is doing is promoting young, ambitious mangers, as a way to make loyal friends. Once Whiting shuts down, the young, ambitious managers will be hired elsewhere. Old... — read more

Is it just me, or does it seem that people who have been laid off are primarily in their late forties and fifties? Not to mention, majority of the ones I know who've been shown the door are among our best employees. It almost seems like this was... — read more
Whiting only has a few more years left in existence. After that, those guys are back in the job market. The Golden handcuff stock options and grants they have will expire worthless or nearly worthless. When they get back on the job market... — read more
