No idea, but I heard Google laid off tons a few weeks ago. That's when you know we're going downhill.

I haven't heard anything, but I heard there is an increase in people joining the military because of the whole job situation!

Since HEB is a privately owned company, they wouldn't be obligated to publicly disclose any personnel reductions.

In the case of private companies whose shares are publicly traded, they may be obligated to release such information to the media in the interest of full disclosure to current and potential future (i.e. anybody) investors.

Under the Federal WARN Act, private companies are required to provide advance notice of mass layoffs. Usually the media finds out about WARN act notifications from the workers if not from the company itself. It looks like the WARN act doesn't apply to layoffs of part-time workers, and that's what most HEB store employees are.

I was talking to an employee at the HEB on Potranco, he said they are actively looking for more cashiers, but they're full for all the other positions. No word of layoffs there...
