In addition to the main headquarters, Apple is expanding its satellite Elk Grove, California campus area. The current center, being used for product distribution and customer support, is being expanded with a conversion of a 134,000 square foot warehouse into an assortment of business-related and employee wellness facilities.
Despite one of its best quarters ever, Apple on Thursday cut 174 sales jobs at its Elk Grove campus. The Business Journal reports that all affected employees -- some of whom were part of the company's telesales team and others who were online chat representatives -- were offered the option to relocate to location in Austin, Texas, or apply for another position at Apple in Elk Grove; however it was not clear why Apple chose to reduce its sales force as many predict a bright future with Macs sales growth outpacing the PC industry. Last year the company was searching for workers to man its iPhone support team in the Sacramento area.
