Mumbai. First Twitter, then Meta and now Amazon as e-commerce giant has started giving pink slips to its staff. Issuing pink slip means to be fired. Last week itself, the company had said in an internal communication sent to its top executives that the hiring has been stopped. According to a report, Jamie Zhang, a software engineer working at Amazon, wrote on LinkedIn that he has been fired from the company. Apart from this, a post by a former employee also said that the entire robotics team was given a pink spill. According to LinkedIn data, there were at least 3,766 employees working in the company's robotics division. However it is not confirmed how many employees have been fired.
Find jobs elsewhere...
In addition, a report claimed that the company has directed employees working in some of its non-profit making units to find jobs elsewhere, as their Projects can either be closed or suspended soon. Beth Galetti, the company's senior vice president of People Experience and Technology, wrote in the memo, "Given the economy reaching a state of uncertainty and the number of people we've hired over the years, Andy and The S-team have decided to put a halt to new appointments this week."
What memo says ?
Memo further reads that this hiring freeze will last for a few months. "We expect to maintain this stagnation for the next few months, and we will continue to monitor what we see in the economy and business as we get some sense," the memo said. We will adjust the business." However, it has also been mentioned in this memo that the company will continue to make appointments for certain projects and those who leave on their own will be replaced by new people. It is also in the note that such situations have not come for the first time having faced many times before.
