Walmart to hire more than 1,300 seasonal associates for upcoming holiday season
MILWAUKEE — Walmart announced Wednesday, October 28th it will hire more than 1,300 seasonal associates in Wisconsin for the upcoming holiday season.
In addition to offering a chance to earn extra money during the holidays at one of the 105 stores in Wisconsin, starting salaries of at least $9 an hour will also provide opportunities to earn at least $1.75 an hour above the current federal and state minimum wage.
Walmart traditionally brings on additional help during the holiday season after offering current associates the opportunity to sign-up for additional hours. Employees initially hired as seasonal sales associates, cashiers and stockers often continue as full-time employees and progress within the company. Last year, more than half of Walmart’s seasonal employees nationwide continued with the retailer as permanent employees.
Walmart has also made a commitment to provide shoppers with a customer service-oriented holiday shopping experience for both in-store and online shoppers, as seasonal department managers will be hired to help customers conveniently pick up their online orders in stores across the nation.
Both customers and communities in Wisconsin will benefit from Walmart’s additional holiday season hires this year, as they will join more than 30,095 associates in the state who are preparing to provide customers with a seamless holiday shopping experience.
