US: Walmart Cuts More Corporate Jobs

Walmart has confirmed that it will eliminate “hundreds” of more corporate positions at its US operations, in the latest round of layoffs at the group.

The group said the new move will affect its international and technology businesses, along with its Sam’s Club warehouse chain.  It did not offer specific details of the numbers or locations that will be impacted.

Walmart noted: “As we said in January, to fuel our growth and our investments we have to manage our costs and our capital decisions with discipline. This means we will continue to find ways to operate more efficiently and effectively.”
