AROCES

By MAE ANDERSON, AP Retail Writer Mae Anderson, Ap Retail Writer – 53 mins agoNEW YORK – Wal-Mart Stores Inc. will cut about 11,200 jobs at Sam's Club warehouses as it turns over the task of in-store product demonstrations to an outside marketing company.

The move is an effort to improve sales at Sam's Club, which has underperformed the company's namesake stores in the U.S. and abroad.

The cuts represent about 10 percent of the warehouse club operator's 110,000 staffers across its 600 stores. That includes 10,000 workers, mostly part-timers, who offer food samples and showcase products to customers. The company also eliminated 1,200 workers who recruit new members.

They hire more people than they have hours for, anyways. Maybe their 'full time' staff could actually have some full time hours.

But these are distribution centers (DC) these are usually full time jobs that pay good.

This is nothing new especially in the retail business which is still reeling from the economy anyways.

ehh Sam's Club is pretty much still a grocery store...just one that looks like a warehouse...or its a warehouse with a grocery line checkout. Either way it's not a warehouse in the traditional sense. I don't think Sam's CLub emplyees get paid that much more then Wal-Mart because its still basically a grocery store. I know it as the place where everything is Giant Sized like that level in Super Mario

The article also states that they are going to hire the same amount of people as they lay off. Not that I'm a big fan of Walmart but....
