Walmart is eliminating about 7,000 office jobs at stores around the country.
The Wall Street Journal reports that the retail giant plans to get rid of accounting and invoicing positions at its stores. Starting next year, those will be handled at a central office or by new money-counting "cash recycler" machines.
Long-term employees usually hold these jobs, and they are often higher-paying than most other retail positions.
