    First!

    We had layoffs in January... 33% some fat trimming, some cut deep, and have since hired back about 29%.

    Pay cuts are still in place though

    Oilfield service company.

    No layoffs. None planned, management actively pursuing options that explicitly avoid staff cuts which is how i qualify the none planned.

    Had a small "pay cut" that resulted in some forced time off this year. Basically forced time off we weren't paid for.

    How many people are considering leaving the city/province to find work elsewhere? Doesn't seem like situation will be improving soon. Many people out of work since beginning of the year. Separate poll?

    My company would probably move me to the US if wanted and I've been considering it. The only thing is I don't like is having my visa tied to my job. If I could figure out how to get my green card after transferring, I would likely do it.

    I've been laid off twice this year and "found" work both times--the first time took 6 weeks and the second took 5 weeks. I say "found" because they weren't jobs I searched and applied for but were through connections.

    Yes and Yes; O&G midstream. Prevous resposne in Part 2 was No/No.
    3 peeps were cut in my group a few months back...one in my current position and one in my previous position, thankfully still employed but at risk fo sho. No benefit cuts or anything like that...but definitely some reduction in expenditures.
