Walmart is looking to significantly boost its U.S. workforce by about 20,000 workers to ease supply chain woes.
The new roles will be spread out across more than 250 Walmart and Sam’s Club distribution centers, fulfillment centers and transportation offices, the Arkansas-based retailer announced Tuesday.
Full- and part-time roles will include order fillers, freight handlers, lift drivers, technicians and management positions.
To attract workers, the company is holding hiring events from Sept. 8-9 in all its supply chain locations. It is also promising "competitive pay" for supply chain associates with the average wage sitting at about $20.37 per hour.
