Today will be your last working day with Uber.’ Watch as choked up executive tells 3,500 rideshare employees they are being laid off effective immediately over a three-minute ZOOM call
At least 3,500 Uber employees learned that they were being laid off in a three-minute Zoom call last week.
Ruffin Chaveleau, head of Uber’s customer service broke the news in a video which have gone viral online.
‘We are eliminating 3,500 frontline customer support roles,’ Chaveleau said. ‘Your role is impacted and today will be your last working day with Uber’.
The cuts were be made among customer support and recruiting teams, meaning driver number will be largely unaffected.
A former Uber employee, who asked to remain anonymous, slammed the company for laying off so many people on a Zoom call and for the lack of notice.
