Sam's Club Layoffs

Sam's Club will lay off more than 10 thousand employees in the United States. Those cuts already affected workers in our area.

NewsChannel 10 spoke with a former Sam's Club employee. She says 17 people including 16 demo associates and one worker in marketing lost their jobs Sunday morning.

The former employee says the laid off workers can re-apply with Sam's Club or apply for a job with the company who will take over the in store demonstrations.

We called the Amarillo Sam's Club and they referred us to a company spokesperson. That person wouldn't comment on local layoffs, but did confirm the layoffs company wide.
