The Arkansas-based retailer said it eliminated 750 jobs — which is says represented less than one per cent of staff — after testing a new management structure in select stores.

As part of the changes, Wal-Mart Canada says 1,300 associates were promoted to more senior roles and about 200 store managers were added.

“The new management structure makes more of our associates available during peak shopping periods when our customers need us the most,” Walmart spokesman Alex Roberton said in an emailed statement on Monday.

He added that the change “gives our associates greater access to their managers for their ongoing career development.”
