Poway Walmart to Hire About 85 New Associates for Store Expansion

Poway CA– Walmart will hire approximately 85 additional associates to work at the Walmart Supercenter expansion slated to open this fall in Poway. The Supercenter is an expansion of the current Walmart store to add fresh groceries. The expansion was approved by the Poway City Council in 2011 and is currently under construction. A temporary hiring kiosk has opened at the store located at 13425 Community Road.

Applications will be accepted seven days a week from 6 a.m. to midnight. Interested applicants may also apply online at http://careers.walmart.com.

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. With both a father and brother in the military, store manager Arthur Gladue wants military veterans to know they would be very welcome to apply to work on the team at the Poway store, which already employs several veterans.

According to Gladue, who started with the company 19 years ago as an hourly associate, the store will be hiring both full- and part-time associates. “With the growth of our store, we are excited to also expand the number of associates we have serving the community in order to bring fresh groceries to Poway,” said Gladue.

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 this September to help prepare the store for the grand opening.

*Veterans must be within 12 months of active duty and meet Walmart’s standard hiring criteria.
