Michael Dell and the exec team didn't lay themselves off did they? Further, any grad student knows this is cyclical, so why layoff or freeze hiring? They don't save much by doing that, so it is done only to make it look like they are doing something for shareholders. It is all bullsh-t. If they wanted to truly cut expenses...they'd start at the top.

There’s definitely a hiring freeze until end of 2022. Applied for a sales job and was given a timeline for the initial phone interview and 2nd round interviews with a potential start date for October 31. On August 1 received an email saying everything is cancelled and to look again in 2023. But we’re not in a recession I’m told and everything is fine.

I’m in HR, and the external hiring freeze is legit. We were told it would end 7/11, but updated late yesterday that we are NOT clear to hire externally yet. No word on internal movement or a lay-off, but the rumors are flying.

Not fake news. I was informed it was coming in the next few weeks and the org I am in will most likely take a hit.

Yes, this is true, there is a freeze. I find it strange that they think things are going to change in the economy by July. Sort of like when they said we were taking two weeks off to see how Covid goes. We all know how that turned out. We could be in this soup until 2024

Not fake.

There's a pause until July by division executives to review business spending.
