Citigroup said Thursday that it is laying off 150 workers at its Fort Mill, S.C., operation, for a total of 17 percent of the people employed there.

The nation’s third-largest lender by assets employs 900 at the Fort Mill site at 605 Munn Road. Citi said the jobs are in “bank document support.” A more specific description was not immediately available.

Citi said the workers were told Wednesday that their jobs would be eliminated by the end of the year. Citi said it will work with the employees to help them find jobs within Citi and with other employers.

On Wednesday, Wells Fargo said it’s laying off 284 employees in Charlotte as the bank trims its mortgage work force amid declining demand for refinancings.
