According to Biloxi store manager Angillette Williams, the store will be hiring both full- and part-time associates. “Walmart is a great company to work for,” said Williams. “There are so many opportunities for professional growth.”
“We are looking to staff our store with some of the greatest associates,” said D’Iberville store manager Jim Hasty.
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 October to help prepare the stores for their grand openings.
*Veterans must be within 12 months of active duty and meet Walmart’s standard hiring criteria.
