RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Walmart cuts more than 10,000 jobs at Sam's Club.

Employees got the grim news Sunday morning.

Walmart is outsourcing its product-sampling department to a marketing company called Shopper Events.

The CEO of Sam's Club sent a memo to staffers, telling them Shopper Events will be filling almost as many positions as WalMart is eliminating.

Employees are invited to apply for those jobs.
