Apple Prunes 375 Jobs, 50 More To Go

| News

There are fewer sales and support folks at Apple these days, according to a C/NET article, which states that Apple cut 375 of those positions in the quarter ending in December of 2001. The C/NET article, by Ian Fired, titled Apple pares a small number of jobs, says:

The cuts, which are the latest in a series of small-scale moves by the Mac maker, came in its sales and support operations.

A company representative would not go into specifics about the latest cuts or say how many jobs were affected.

"Apple remains one of the few large companies in the Valley who hasnit had major layoffs in these challenging times," the Apple representative said.

In a February filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Apple said it cut 375 jobs in the quarter ending Dec. 31 and planned to cut 50 more jobs. Apple took a $24 million restructuring charge in its January earnings report.
