Apple denies layoffs at Beats
posted by Alan F. / Aug 02, 2014, 3:43 PM
The original rumor had Apple canning 200 Beats employees in human resources, and finance, departments where Apple is already well stocked. But the latest news is that the suits in Cupertino have fired five Beats workers due to poor performance. Still, music trade magazine Billboard is reporting that incoming Beats employees are being warned of terminations that could take place in three months to a year in areas like Human Resources, Finance and Legal. An official statement from Apple does mention that some of the job offerings for Beat personnel, are for a limited time.
In addition to Beats co-founders Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre, who both will be given a title and office in Cupertino, Beats Music CEO Ian Rogers will become head of iTunes radio.

As usual just rumors and speculation with no cold, hard FACTS.

Them saying that some jobs are temporary is literally cold hard FACTS. I assume Apple is good at marketing in all regards and won't make the same mistake as MS did. They will fire over time, so no one notices and no one will care. MS wanted to make a show of their big "bold" changes and there was a huge backlash.

So it makes sense to keep, let's say, Beats' Human Resources Department? Layoffs will eventually happen. Apple is a stingy company, what makes you think they will not do it?

Layoff is very common every time a company merge, specially the payroll department, don't need two separate payroll once become under one roof. That is cold heart fact for any I mean ANY company that merge.

i know this is a rant style but what you think people unlike the people in Europe where they hardly work then want pensions from gov. or Greece where they drop the euro and have to take money from others, or in america where all the south american and African people take there money legal or illegal workers and send it home and that destroys the us economy if you have a glass of water and keep sipping on it you will have no water left without filling it back up. i think for the worlds economy the county you work in should issue chit style cards to the people via chip implant that way it can unlock your phone and door and using nfc style you could pay for things, or tech tech tech when will the world just allow it all no more lost stolen wallets pass-code for phone and car keys bike keys home keys. of course they will make it like a nano chip so people cant just cut you hand off to steal the chip hahahah.
