According to store manager Mike Walston, the store will be hiring both full- and part-time associates. “Finding the right associates is such an important part of a successful store and we are excited to start looking,” said Walston.
Walmart provides a benefits program to eligible full- and part-time associates. For example, it provides a variety of affordable health and well-being benefits including health-care coverage with no lifetime maximum. Walmart also offers eligible associates matching 401(k) contributions of up to 6 percent of pay, discounts on general merchandise, an Associate Stock Purchase Program and company-paid life insurance. Additionally, eligible associates receive a quarterly incentive based on store performance.
The majority of new associates will begin work in November to help prepare the store for its grand opening. The store will be located on Shed Road near the Stockwell Place neighborhood.
