NAVARRE — A Neighborhood Walmart is opening this winter in Navarre.
And with it are 95 jobs open to locals.
As construction is ongoing at the Neighborhood Walmart site, just west of The Sound apartments on U.S. Highway 98, a temporary hiring center is open at 1766 Sea Lark Lane.
The Neighborhood Walmart concept is a smaller format from the Walmart Supercenters offering groceries and pharmacy services. A small gas station will be located on property.
Applications for employment will be accepted Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and by appointment on Saturday. People can also apply online at careers.walmart.com. Employees will begin work in December to help prepare the store for the grand opening, according to a press release from Walmart corporate.
Benefits will be provided to full and part-time associates including health and 401(k) contributions up to six percent of pay, stock options, company-paid life insurance and cash bonuses based on performance. Employees also receive discounts on general merchandise, the release said.
Last year, Walmart promoted 15,600 of its associates in Florida and 10,450 Florida associates were converted from part-time to full-time. There are 107,525 associates in the state of Florida.
Through its Veteran Welcome Home Commitment, Walmart will offer a job to any eligible U.S. veteran honorably discharged from active duty. Since the program began on Memorial Day in 2013, the company has hired more than 120,000 veterans nationwide. More information about the program can be found at walmartcareerswithamission.com.
