    My best friend started a job at a large law firm in Omaha about 2 weeks ago. He spent 3 days there and has been working from home since. Must be weird.

    Accountant for a large automotive company. Working from home now after surviving the mass layoff yesterday morning. But I realize they just kept most of us here to get through quarter end and then will do another round of layoffs.

    Luckily I was recruited by a trucking/heavy machinery company that is considered essential. Will probably be accepting an offer from them and starting in a few weeks.

    We switched to remote work which makes me a little bit less efficient but my projects all have seemed to ramped up as well.

    Our IT worked hard to create a viable work from home set up, but it kill productivity for us and would require us to do split morning and evening shifts for half the company. Work load hasn’t dipped yet.

    Engineer at a nuclear power plant. Been working from home for the last 2 weeks and will be for at least the next few. We have an outage starting in 2 weeks and they're trying to figure out how we're doing support for it since it's usually 24/7 coverage. May be working nights at home.

    Late night news dump. The billion dollar company I work for has decided to have a salary, hiring, and replacement freeze for the rest of the year.

    That means no merit's for us even though they're supposed to be based off the previous years results. Also, we're all still required to be at work for our shifts.

    Let's see how this plays out. Company isn't huge in the USA, but is supposed to be like UPS in the rest of the world.

    I have a project that is a large private development construction site that is still active. The developer asked the GC on a call today if they’ve seen a slow-down in labor which the GC repeated the site had the highest day yet at 590 construction workers working on site. It’s a big site but I’ll be avoiding site visits for a while.

    Still coming in along with just a couple others. Don't really have to be, it's just easier to get shit done here. Have an office with my door shut so not interacting with anyone at all.

    I usually get to work at 8, but the past couple days I've gotten here at 8:45ish. I usually beat my boss in, but he beat me in yesterday and today (I arrived at 8:45 today).

    He just sent me a text that said "Second day in a row I've beaten you into work." Can't tell if he's just messing with me or not, but my blood is currently boiling.

    Own a commercial property management company. I am still coming into the office but all of my managers and support staff are working remotely.

    We focus mainly on retail properties and I am constantly fielding calls from tenants telling me they can’t/won’t pay rent. Our management fees are based on rental income so it looks like I’m not getting paid for awhile.

    Luckily I have enough operating reserves to cover payroll for my staff for 5 months, Just nothing leftover for myself.

    Day 5 post shutdown:

    Our numbers continue to dwindle. From 49 Monday to 40 yesterday, today they laid off 20 employees. The vending machines as dangerously low on snacky-snacks (the veggie straws are fully stocked still), but we’re too afraid to call the company and have them refilled. There was screaming in the boardroom this morning as I walked down the hall past empty, darkened rooms normally bustling with reddit and YouTube consumption. Our businesses are shuttered in 1/6th of our footprint. The VPN is the all-father keeping us above water. We the people indeed...

    Still getting my hours, the hospital has reassigned staff into a labor pool. If you are not needed in your dept. or your floor you go there instead of staying home. Heard there are about 70 employees sitting around on their phones/watching netflix/reading a book

    They're still deciding for us. They're looking at each project to decide. We were supposed to replace the low pressure turbines this outage. If we don't, we have to inspect and probably do a long shank repair, at a minimum. So we will probably replace them no matter what. Craft contractors are currently furloughed though.

    I have a letter from my company, my customer, and the department of homeland security lol

    I can do most of my job remotely, in fact half of my department works remotely as it is. Only really need to travel to job sites but I won't need to do that until at least May 18th just because of where we're at.
