Amazon is hiring.

We’re not calling it a hiring freeze, but it’s effectively one. Without the office open to conduct onsite interviews and onboard new employees, everything is stopping after phone screens.

I wonder if some companies will keep hiring and only use video interviews. Then they can mail laptops to new employees. It’s definitely not ideal.

Amazon, WalMart and all the grocery stores are hiring like crazy right now.

I been telling my service industry peers to file for unemployment or get a job at these places ASAP… Ask for waivers on late payments/interest for bills, get CoveredCA for health, etc.

Tough times for these folks.

Elon like Trump thinks coronavirus is a hoax

Many bay area companies asking essential staff (Operations, security, sales-customer facing and similar work) to come to office while other people are asked to work from home.

If those ppl caught it and get really sick I see lawsuit happening. How can they treat employees differently.
