BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Some good news for the unemployed in Bakersfield: Walmart is looking to hire nearly a hundred people for a new neighborhood market, set to open this fall.
The new market is said to need up to 95 new employees in August to help prepare that store for its grand opening.
Both part- and full-time associates will be hired.
Newly discharged veterans will have first priority thanks to Walmart's Veterans Welcome Home commitment.
A temporary hiring center is now open at 1129 Olive Drive and applications will be accepted Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Interested applicants may also apply online.
