According to store manager Christine Lewis the store will be hiring both full- and part-time associates. “It gives us great pleasure to offer the people in Anderson the convenience of a Walmart Neighborhood market,” said Lewis. “Your Walmart Neighborhood Market is a grocery store, a full service pharmacy, and the added convenience of a low price fuel center. We are looking forward to serving you in the Anderson community, as well as creating much needed employment opportunities.”
According to Walmart, the company 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 March to help prepare the store for its grand opening.
