Report: Walmart to slash more store manager positions

BY CSA Staff

The nation’s largest retailer has store managers in its sights as its heads into another round of layoffs.

Walmart is planning to cut two department manager positions at some of its 4,700 stores — those that oversee cell phone departments and online grocery pickup areas, according to Business Insider, which cited The Wall Street Journal.

The cuts come one month after Walmart announced its plan to eliminate more than 1,000 corporate jobs, and 3,500 store co-manager positions.

A slightly lower-paid role, these employees will be tasked with overseeing fast-growing areas, like online orders.
