At least 3,500 Uber employees learned that they were being laid off in a three-minute Zoom call last week.
DailyMail.com obtained video of the call where Ruffin Chaveleau, head of Uber’s customer service, broke the news. Watch the video here:
‘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’.
Many employees in customer support and recruiting teams were affected, while 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 without any prior information on that.
