Norfolk, Va. – Walmart will hire up to 95 associates to work at the new Walmart Neighborhood Market slated to open late this fall in Norfolk, according to a release from Walmart.

A temporary hiring center has opened at 5812 Poplar Hall Drive, Suite C. Applications will be accepted Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. 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.

According to store manager Lisa Romero the store will be hiring both full- and part-time associates. “We are excited to bring a new Walmart Neighborhood Market to Norfolk and provide area residents with good jobs and career opportunities,” said Romero.

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 in October to help prepare the store for its grand opening, officials say.
