Thread regarding Chevron Corp. layoffs

Rehiring former employees

Does anyone know if CVX will rehire folks who were part of the 2016 layoffs?

How do you know if you are eligible ?

( sure this will invite the usual deadwood stuff)

dhcd, Yes indeed, you are so right. Which explains why you, dhcd are trolling this site and have no life, LGBT lover(appropriate for you), prospects, or job and sit there on your mommies PC insulting others - LOL

ROTFLMAO-boy. Hard to believe you’re such the great winner (you claim) when you’re such a low life in insulting others in your incessant postings here on a freeeken layoff site. Most of the real winners are off sipping mai tai on their paddle boards rather than sitting at mama’s computer in the double wide. Too each his own I guess.

Ditto for me. I put in 29 years and had planned to retire in 2016, exactly to the month when the company decided instead to hand me a layoff slip with a 1-year sendoff bonus check and 6 months of unemployment and cheap insurance. Thanks Chevron, for the parting gift, but don’t ask me to come back. Happily retired.

I did my 31 years and it was a great ride! Living the dream in retirement, come back? No thanks

Good call... we can update the name “ROTFLMAO-boy” to “NWNJNPNFNB-Troll-boy”.... seems a good fit!

, One huge difference... There’s no substitute for experience and Chevron has no problem paying for it, not to mention squandering money away on so other things including rework and mismanaged projects. The thing is you are the well known clown that trolls this site with that silly ROTFLMAO tag line. We can now update your alias of “No woman, No job, No Prospects, No Future” to include “No business”.

Yeah, I have a company now that I own, since being laid off -8iml. But when I am running out of work to keep everyone busy and I am forced to let people go, I always look at what I am paying people and if I have 2 people "doing the exact same work" as you put it, and one is paid twice as much as the other, I always keep the one that I'm paying twice as much and get rid of the cheaper one - ROTFLMAO!

After being laid off in 2016, I was told (cryptically) by HR that I (and others like me) wouldn’t be accepted as rehires at Chevron anymore, not as an employee or a contractor. I was laid off for “lack of work”, as they put it. Yet other junior and less experienced coworkers in my department remained on staff, doing the same work as I used to do. Don’t ever try to get HR to admit to age discrimination, they won’t ever.

They rehired me and I was laid off in 2016. And I always was considered a useless piece of Deadwood by all of my coworkers. Go figure!

by | Post ID:

-5opl, make the mistake of using that HR tool on the website and you could get laid off all over again.

by | Post ID:

It may be more common than you realize. There is even a tool for it on the HR webpage under life events. You can tell it you were rehired and I guess it will dig up your old records and bridge everything together.

Good analogy .

by | Post ID:

For me, the analogy is like the chance of your ex-wife who divorce you and wanting you back.

Yes, it is probable and happened may be 1 in 1000. So for the 15,000 employees laid off, what is your chance?

by | Post ID:

, Surely they were rehired under 2 of the 3 scenarios you stated. But, I’ll wager these ex-employees you mention were not forcefully laid off.

by | Post ID:

I believe two former employees have been taken back on a part time ad-hoc basis via the Bridges program on an FPSO project so it is possible to return. Not sure if they had elected to leave in 2016 via the EOI option, retired or were let go involuntary but whichever they are back.

The very few people who have been rehired after leaving Chevron were talented retirees or younger workers who quit to go elsewhere but were later disappointed and returned. But never have laid off employees been rehired in the recent decades at Chevron. The reasoning is varied, but pretty simple, it’s counterproductive. Rehire a laid off former employee and that individual is then “starting anew” with pension benefits starting all over again, thus inviting resentment in the employee. Rehire a former employee and that person brings back a sense of entitlement because he had worked there before, whereas he is expected most times to start in a different position and with different expectations from his supervisor. Bring back a former employee and the company runs the risk of that person resurrecting old vendettas, etc. The reasons are varied and the company logically will perceive possible troubles if they rehire someone who was laid off. They conclude the best policy is to just not rehire them. HR may not have a written policy, but it clearly an unwritten one. Say goodbye, because there’s no job back here for laid off workers.

Dude, you ain't right. Give the guy a break. Maybe he had only a 3rd grade ed. you never know.

3ils, Yes indeed, I hope that you and all of your friends have good "oppertunities" ROTFLMAO!

by | Post ID:

I know folks that have left for other opertunities over the years and then were hired back after they decided the grass was not greener (although not recently). There is a long-standings block on rehiring recent retirees as consultants for 6-12 months, depending on grade. I never heard there was a block on those laid off from being rehired, but I also never heard any suggestion that those laid off would be given preference in rehiring during the recovery (which has started). I am guessing there would be a negative impression in general if you were cut during the downturn (“lower preformer”). Then again I know several folks that were top notch but sitting in the wrong chair when the music stopped...Chevron would be foolish to block rehires of those types of folks when things improve. Indeed I was laid off many years ago during a down turn, in no small measure because before the cull I voiced “disappointment” with management. In the end it worked out for the better all around. If there are any lain off Chevron, who had talent, and who still wish to return ... that would be a different question. Most in this group I know have already moved on to other opertunities.

by | Post ID:

That’s all well and good. No argument that Chevron is a great place to work, but let’s be honest, when the company laid you off, they intended for it to be a permanent thing. Forget about ever getting rehired. HR has your name and social security number blacklisted. After all, what valid reason would they have to bring you back? It’s easier and cheaper to hire someone new.

by | Post ID:

I guess getting back on the Chevron pension scheme could be worth $200k per year or more. That’s a good reason. Plus most employees think Chevron is the best place to work. They voted with their feet to stay.

by | Post ID:

They couldn't match my pay, benefits, project opportunities or work environment of my current employer. More importantly, my current company does not have the number of fatalities per year that the supposedly superior Chevron does. They call it 'deadwood' in the CVX world.

by | Post ID:

The $64,000 Question is “Why would you ever want to be rehired by Chevron?” Why not spend your precious time trying to get hired elsewhere for similar pay and benefits? Clean slate, new start.

by | Post ID:

Chevron HR policy does allow for the rehiring of former employees. It specifies former employees can be rehired as a contractor after as little as 6 months separation from Chevron, but will only be allowed to work a maximum of 20 workhours per week. A former employee can be rehired as a full-time employee, but after 3 years of having permanently left the company. That’s the policy, but in real practice, if you were laid off, your chances of rehire is slim to none.
