    slash one job // slash one position

    Hello.

    Most jobs cut by employers since March 2003 - PennLive.com
    Manufacturers cut 51,000 jobs, construction companies axed 35,000 jobs, retailers got rid of 40,000 positions, business services shed 27,000 and financial services slashed 17,000 positions, with securities and investment firms accounting for 8,000 of those reductions.

    Boeing cutting 1,000 more jobs - CNN.com
    Boeing will slash about 1,000 jobs from its Integrated Defense Systems department because of funding cuts by the Pentagon, according to a memo to employees. These cuts are in addition to previously announced job cuts at the aerospace giant.

    1. slash one job
    2. slash one position
    Do these mean the same thing?

    Thank you.

    I do not think we say slash one job or position. (S)lash in slash jobs means to downsize the workforce drastically.

    In the right context 'job' and 'position' can have the same meaning.
