    From talking to a few people that have recently gone though this, month per year is still out there, especially if you're older (harder to get another job)

    Well this is part 8, and it's more than 2 years old, and honestly I've been considering starting part 9 as a fresh 2021 layoffs thread.

    My thoughts on energy employment are well documented in several threads. It's low, and going lower.

    With comparable pay? Thats kind of dated thinking, no?

    Id expect a 20% haircut.
    The comparable pay argument is tiresome. You are worth what you are worth.

    The idea that people in O&G are universally grossly overpaid, now that is dated thinking. At least amongst people who add any value.

    Has morale every been good at husky since like 2010? I think most people stayed there for their juicy bonuses. I've heard of 100-150% salary bonus for some management, like that's bananas. That's a perk likely going away at Cenovus.

    I was at a Flames game a couple years ago in a booth/box thing and there were a bunch of Husky employees there, as well. It was really really weird. I don't know what part of the biz they worked in, but I've never seen anything quite like it. They drank free liquor like the world was ending in 24hr. Puked in the bathroom. Broke glasses. The one girl that was maybe a 6 was taking active steps to get fucked by a (co-worker) guy that was a 3. They literally stayed so fucking long after the game ended (drinking free liquor) that security came and finally asked everyone to leave.

    So I'm sure it was a "results not typical" scenario and I'm sure it's not a solid indicator of company morale (or at least I'd hope not) but it was a hell of a show.
    I've been less embarrassed at a hockey came with a bunch of drunk welders! LoL!

    Ha! No. I was there with the hostess, so she was stuck there until they were done and even then, they expected to get to go to the casino and some bar for an endless night of free liquor, because, the world was clearly ending in about 18hr.
    Once the host could leave them, we were able to leave and I think we were sharing a cab or something because I felt greasy about taking a taxi chit for myself. Something like that. Something was pinning me to the hostess on that night and I can't recall exactly why.
    And it's not like I was sipping tea with my monocle, all evening. I took on a good belly full of free beer and had a perfectly nice time. I just didn't try to die of alcohol poisoning and fuck a fat chick from Accounts Payable. It's a free game with whatever appetizers and a few free drinks in the box. There was/is no need to turn it into a Motley Crue video that actually looks more like a Marilyn Manson video.

    It doesn't pay to regret lost opportunities.

    I'm kinda in this boat, coming up on 12 years within an O&G company, would rather move into a comparable position/pay at a stable company than take the payout. To each their own though.
    In 2017 my company was bought. I was paid out and get a job in the new company. It was pretty much the best scenario that could have happened. There was months of worrying i was going to get the axe though.

    Sounds like a pretty normal night in a box to me. Were you expecting to simply watch the hockey game?
    I like neat cars.

    Curb the big bonuses and maybe they're around today. I hear all this and then read "Company now for sale, non core assets up for sale, anyone, please, buy something, my office chair... We need money to stay alive".


    The Husky story sounds like a script for Fubar #3.
