According to store manager Eric Fenton, the store will be hiring both full- and part-time associates. “I began as an hourly associate and worked my way up with Walmart, I look forward to meeting other potential associates who are looking for great opportunities with a great company,” said Fenton.
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 September to help prepare the store for its grand opening.
*Veterans must be within 12 months of active duty and meet Walmart’s standard hiring criteria.
