Store manager Phillip Cook said, “We’re not just hiring for jobs, we’re hiring for careers. I started as an hourly cart associate, and worked my way up.”
Walmart provides a benefits program to eligible full- and part-time employees including healthcare coverage, a 401(k) program, discounts on general merchandise, a stock purchase program and company-paid life insurance.
The majority of new associates will begin work in January to help prepare the store for its grand opening, Cook said.
