When there were layoffs a few years ago, Ed said it was the saddest day in his career, and he’d never do it again. The company never fully recovered. And then they choose a pandemic, with massive job losses and a terrible financial market, to furlough and layoff so many? While bragging to the press that things are going well and all employees are coming back? What a bunch of garbage. This company is an embarrassment and should be ashamed of their actions and lies. The press needs to know there were layoffs. And that the new CTO is a spineless hack, who apparently passed the buck about all tech layoffs saying he was the new guy and had nothing to do with it. I feel terrible for everyone laid off during these terrible times, but those remaining are not going to like their jobs very much.

You don't have to do a press release if it's a small layoff. So far, both rounds of layoffs at D–k's have been small.
My son was let go and I send a letter to Governor Wolf and copied in 2 news station in Pittsburgh. I also included a link to this site. I live in NYS and companies here have to issue a press release when layoffs occur. I haven't seen anything about D–k's. I also never saw a company have postings for over 6000 jobs after doing a layoff. Over 60 are corporate jobs. I feel sorry for this generation. I was lucky to retire after 40 yrs with the same company.
Seriously. I saw my job literally get posted today. Umm I'm sorry you are rehiring for a job you literally just laid me off from?
Classy business practices there 😑
I agree the press needs to know that all those people they promised to bring back were let go. And a lot of their jobs then posted the next day. As others have stated, they are hiring cheaper labor. They were never bringing those people back. The pandemic was a good out for them
