Solera faces backlash for conducting a mass layoff through a Zoom call without muting employee microphones, resulting in a chaotic and emotional scene captured in TikTok videos by user Liz (@liz_queenvirgo).

Employees expressed their dismay, with one stating, “This is bullsh*t. This is absolutely disgusting.”

Another questioned the decision, saying,

“Six years I’ve been at this company. You guys are going to let us go? I have over $5 million under my name. What are you guys going to do?”

One disgruntled employee criticized the company’s lack of concern for its workforce, stating, “You guys don’t care. That’s the problem with this company—you guys have not cared about our employees at all.”

The sentiment continued with a mention of the acquisition, “AutoMate used to be an awesome company. You guys bought us and f*cked us royally. I am so disgusted.”

Amid the uproar, the blame was directed towards a manager named David, with a call to remove him from his position. However, a subsequent video revealed that David retained his job, adding to the frustration of the affected employees.

During the call, a manager offered an apology, met with skepticism from an employee who retorted, “No, you’re not.”

The Zoom call was abruptly terminated by management, leaving employees uncertain about their severance and employment status.

Commenters on the TikTok videos criticized the company’s handling of the situation, with one questioning the decision to conduct an open conference call about layoffs, calling it an “HR nightmare”

As the situation unfolded, it became evident that some employees were still unaware of their standing within the company, further adding to the disarray caused by the poorly executed layoff.

The incident drew parallels to previous viral layoff calls, such as the case of Victoria’s Secret laying off customer service staff via Zoom in April.
