At checkout, provide your birthday and the last four digits of your social security number and your purchase is complete. It’s that easy!"
Well shazam, credit is so hard to get these days and banks are changing their logos like once a month now and Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is adamant that he wasn't one of our representatives who pushed Freddie and Fannie to loan money to people who's earnings profiles couldn't get them loans several years back. So eBay buys a company that extends credit to people like with a birthday and their SSN. How generous. And eBay completed a wacky day of business by nuking 1,000 people who weren't needed anymore.
Hey, when a company nukes someone brought in by a recruiter, do these recruiters see their positive metrics now head south? Something like a RDR or Recruiting Deficiency Ratio.
People, layoffs are public admissions that a company's leaders have failed at strategic planning. What the heck was John Donahoe thinking? Who recruited him to eBay?
Dunno, I guess dumb recruiters recruit dumb people.
