THE WHAT? Walmart is set to employ an additional 40,000 staff in seasonal and full time roles across the business.
THE DETAILS The retailer is recruiting for seasonal store associates, full-time, permanent truck drivers, and Customer Care associates.
Employees are being offered benefits such as medical cover, counselling sessions, PTO policies, and an associate stock purchase plan for qualifiying employees.
THE WHY? Walmart is embarking on the recruitment drive ahead of the lucrative holiday season.
It stated, “As we prepare to serve customers this season, we’ll begin, as usual, by offering additional hours to current associates who want them. In fact, it’s never been easier for part-time associates to pick up extra shifts and build their own schedules with the flexibility they want. After that, we’ll offer the opportunity for those who want to earn extra money working on a temporary basis.”
