Topics regarding layoffs at Bechtel
Anyone know why? Started happening almost immediately after Hurricane Harvey.
Bechtel PCAPP site didnt even offer severance pay to their laid off employees in March 2017. They don care about their employees on profit site is all messed up nothing works there.
Just announced, this time company wide. Last year was business line specific.
You are able to extend your termination date by taking your vacation. I'm not sure why they are not offering any severance. Employees who have worked there 10+ years are treated the same as ones that we're recently hired. Times are tough and... read more

Are there any layoffs in Oil and Gas at Bechtel Houston office? How many people are left? Is anyone relocating?
Bechtel is laying off employees in the US (Glendale AZ in particular has been hard hit) and sending those jobs to New Delhi. So much for the much touted claim that Bechtel values their long term employees. New Delhi has plenty of job openings right... read more
If oil prices remain low I can bet they will up that number to 2000 or even more. Layoffs are inevitable and the pipeline does not look good.
Today Og&c announced a worldwide salary freeze.
Please give me a call at or if you are interested in joining a growing company that offers rapid career growth and leadership opportunities.
Can someone chime in here? I am interested in US only numbers, mid-managers.
If you've been laid off, are worried about a layoff or know someone who's been laid off, email or call me. Tom Hanna, The Confidential Advisor LLC.
I am optimistic the company will bounce back with a vengeance. We are bidding on plenty of work, Mozambique was not the only prospect in the pipeline.
Disappointing for all, my training Bechtel paid for will be used to benefit another company. I sincerely hope this company can find a way to be more limber in a changing economy.
I believe the big layoff is project based, hopefully only OGC is affected. The folks might get sent to other GBU's until they get a big job.
What is the typical severance package? One week per year of employment? Just trying to be ready.
Is the Houston office the only Bechtel office that is starting layoffs? Does this affect Glendale/Reston? this is very disappointing.
Yes, i heard similar rumors about a big layoff in Houston. I checked TWC.state.tx.us and found no reports, under the WARN ACT Bechtel has to make a report. The Houston-Bechtel employees should not have an issue finding work with another construction... read more
These are definitely not rumors, unfortunately this is reality. The Houston office is definitely downsizing after a big loss, not sure to what extent. Does anyone else have more info?
Please post if you have more info - I have heard some rumors about possible layoffs here at Bechtel and wanted to see if anyone had more info.
not only overseas - we are cutting here as well
We closed a plant in Turkey

We are starting with layoffs again, I am confused, why layoffs now as the economy is starting to recover and we'll be facing stronger demand in the months ahead. I guess one of the reasons for the work force reduction might be hiding in the fact that... read more
