Amazon's Web Services Department posted 24,988 job openings, when in fact there were approvals for only 7,798, leading to an over-hiring situation, Insider reported quoting from an internal document. Amazon acknowledged the over-hiring, admitting its processes were prone to inconsistency, error, and potential "mis-use". Amazon announced a second round of layoffs that will result in 9,000 job cuts.
