WHAT: Walmart will hire approximately 200 associates to work at the new Walmart slated to open this spring in Garden Grove. A temporary hiring center has opened at 12880 Beach Blvd. in Stanton.
“As one of the largest employers in the County, Walmart is a tremendous asset for our region,” said Garden Grove Mayor Bruce Broadwater. This new store will be a boon for Garden Grove not just for customers looking for low prices, but because of the hundreds of jobs it will provide for local residents.”
Applications will be accepted Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Interested applicants should also apply online at http://careers.walmart.com.
“We are excited to soon welcome a second Walmart store to Garden Grove, along with the jobs and new economic opportunities this store will create for our City,” said David Ahern, CEO of the Garden Grove Chamber of Commerce.
Through Walmart’s Veterans Welcome Home Commitment, the company will offer a job to any qualified veteran who has been honorably discharged within the past 12 months.* Interested veterans may find out more at http://walmartcareerswithamission.com.
According to store manager Michael Hardaway, the store will be hiring both full- and part-time associates. “I am looking forward to meeting potential associates and bringing a convenient one-stop shopping location to the Garden Grove community,” said Hardaway.
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 June to help prepare the store for its grand opening.
