I'm not even buying anything through eBay anymore, because I don't want any reminders of my time there. It's been a little over two months since I quit and I feel like a new person. Not having to take daily abuse from managers with zero people skills... — read more
The earnings call is tomorrow and from what I can see, things are looking better. Do you think we'll do well enough to avoid any layoffs for a while?
There hasn't been a major round of layoffs in a while. I know that should be a reason to celebrate but an extended period at eBay without major layoffs means that something big is coming our way. Usually, the month to look at is February, so that's... — read more
If the economy turns around, do you anticipate any EBAY layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
I don't think layoffs at eBay ever stopped. They're just really well hidden because they're small enough to fly under the radar. I pity people who think they're safe between major rounds. There is simply no such thing as safe here anymore. Anybody... — read more
We have been selling on ebay for over 20 years–total sales in excess of 4 million dollars. We have a 'concierge' account (top 2% of sellers) yet while other companies have figured out how to respond off-site- no one has answered our phone calls for... — read more
Where is all of this taking our communities and our company?
There were more cuts yesterday, remote offices were gutted. That's what, third layoffs round this month? Do they plan to ever stop or just continue having layoffs on a nearly weekly basis?
Hearing of a big Layoff going on in San Jose and Austin. Anyone getting affected
How many work at the company? What is the overall employee count at San Jose?
Looks like the supporting PMO team is gone as well...
I've heard eBay never shied away from layoffs around the holidays - does this mean we are not even safe for the remainder of the year?
Have you heard anything about potential EBAY Layoffs 2020? Any news or rumors?
The only company where employees are more scared of layoffs than eBay is Tesla. We are second on the list with 71.88 percent of people saying they are worried about being shown the door. Considering that number, I'm just surprised there aren't more... — read more
Attention all potential new highers/job sneakers to ebay, do not join/apply unless you like to be let go after only +/- 1 year. What a waist if you are looking for a great place to work and a steady paycheck! There is only constant unecessay... — read more
The entire product and tech org in India was laid off on the 14th, including a director. Also, many people from other teams like customer support (GCX) were also laid off. Many more will follow soon due to "performance" reasons.
Once again the brainy people are asked to leave to save money. With the last two layoffs, eBay is actually forcing itself into the band of third-rated tier 3 companies that cant afford to pay the highly talented. The company neither deserves nor can... — read more
Can confirm layoffs. Had my position terminated today in Bellevue, along with quite a few others. Surprised there’s nothing in the news about it, as I’m curious what the final tally is this time.
It has been happening for years. The only energy management has is about causes outside of the core business. Any manager with passion for the job and their team is punished. DW thought building a c-appy building on the old campus was going to turn... — read more
EBay laid off 15 director-level employees yesterday. Layoffs were affecting managers as well, about 40 managers were laid off. In addition to this many software engineers, architects, data scientists were cut... Also, affected legal and admin... — read more
Or is it done for now? I'm asking about the US?
Mostly Managers and many ICs are let go today in another round of layoff. Second in 6 months, today's layoff impacted many Staff level engineers and mid-tier management. Ebay continues to fall under internal politics and crumbling under devious and... — read more
eBay continues to lay-off American workers and it is shipping its jobs to Eastern Europe. Most workers that remain are indentured H1b slaves working for 1/2 of normal wages.
Not conspiracy theories - actual info? There were rumors going around more people would be shown the door before the end of the month, so I'm wondering if that's going to happen or not. If there is somebody in the know who'd be willing to share info... — read more
H1-b’s are willing to work for $20 a day and nobody seems to care how incompetent they are. If you don’t have another job lined up you had better not wait
I worked at two companies where Elliott came in. They will get a seat on the board. They will threaten management with a proxy vote to oust them if they don't concede to terms. They will sell off what they consider to be under performing or non core... — read more
If you are still working at this dump, it’s temporary. The remaining employees will be replaced by Indian contractors. If you think it couldn’t get any worse, you’re wrong. It’s pretty bad when your employees leave to go work at staples or lowes
As a seller of 20 years on Ebay I decided recently to close up all my selling pages and walk away from it, ebay has gone down the krapper in many ways, it's been cluttered up with scores of cheap JUNK that games the search too. Where I had $800 a... — read more
Do you think there will be EBAY Layoffs in 2019?
American jobs are being cut from the US and moved to India, Europe, and wherever else eBay can find cheap tech labor. I, for one, refuse to do business with greedy corporations that lay off AMERICAN workers.
Weve been consistent for years, have thousands of unique items, and sell hundreds of thousands a year. June started being horrible, then it comes back and then sales disappear again. Weve offered free returns for months now and yet if you search by... — read more
That’s the future I see for eBay, and once a faded company gets bought by private equity, anything resembling a good workplace is out the window. It’s all about squeezing profits and spending bare minimum. Customers will be even more unhappy because... — read more
I quit working for eBay after sitting in long executive meetings, where management basically plotted ways to farm more and more money from Sellers, without any actual knowledge or research to show why they where doing it. They would 'create' market... — read more
Now I see what that was all about. eBay did a little preemptive announcing ahead of the quarterly results report. I guess they thought announcing layoffs (which both shareholders and investors love as easy money-savers) would stop the stock from... — read more
Major layoffs are happening right now, San Francisco is being hit hard. From what I understand, this will continue until the end of the week. I really wish they would do it all in one go, stress of having to deal with this for days is not going to be... — read more
EBAY has no strategy aside from firing talented people to spend money on entry level customer service roles. The Sydney office now resembles an Indian call centre.
Anybody knows if the layoffs were limited to last week or can we expect some to spill over into this one as well? I'm asking specifically for the U.S.
