For the second time this month, Halliburton is laying off employees.
11News has made several calls and sent e–mails to Halliburton officials and all we've gotten in response from them is the same we got back on March 5 when they laid off a bunch of folks- a vague e–mail confirming "reductions" at their Grand Junction office. We asked them specifically how many people lost their jobs today and they won't answer.
11News has received several calls from people saying they were let go today out of the blue. One current employee tells 11News that he's heard more layoffs are on the way.
Earlier this month when Halliburton made its first round of cuts employees showed up to find guards telling them their services were no longer needed. This time our callers tell us they got a phone call the night before their shift telling them not to come in.
But despite the layoffs the company still has billboard up off of Highway 6&50 that says "OILFIELD JOBS, APPLY IN PERSON."
