Sources confirm Apple laid off salespeople last week

Sources who wished to remain anonymous for fear of reprisal confirmed reports by Valleywag and that roughly 50 salespeople were let go by the company for “business and economic reasons”, according to one source. An entire sales group based in Austin, Texas, was let go as well as workers in Cupertino, Calif., where Apple is headquartered. Those affected were given severance packages and the opportunity to apply for other jobs inside Apple.



  1. I guess Apple products sell themselves. Unfortunately for those laid off that not too far from the truth.
