Retailer hires big for San Antonio seasonal jobs

Monday, November 2nd, 2015

Walmart is hiring big for San Antonio seasonal jobs.

“The holidays are one of the most anticipated times of the year for families, and one of the busiest. Walmart has been working all year to give our customers a great shopping experience and we believe they will see a difference when they visit us during the holidays.

“Walmart will have more associates in our stores working more hours this season, all with a focus on providing service and convenience to our customers. We will continue our ‘Checkout Promise’ by having more registers open during peak shopping times, helping customers save time by getting through our lines quicker.

“Walmart is thankful for the hard work and dedication of our associates. I see every day how our people make the difference. Associates are doing amazing things to help create an excellent experience for our customers. As we head into our busiest time of the year, we know associates are going to deliver for our customers and help give them a memorable and affordable Christmas.”

“To help exceed our customer’s expectations, Walmart will give current associates the first opportunity to pick up additional hours. We are also hiring 60,000 seasonal associates, with a starting rate of at least $9 an hour. We know some of these hires are looking for a short-term opportunity to earn extra Christmas money, but for many, this could be the start of a career. In fact we have hundreds of store managers who started with the company as a seasonal associate. Last year, more than half of our seasonal associates stayed with Walmart in a permanent role after the holidays.” – Judith McKenna, Chief Operating Officer, Walmart U.S..
