Some FGC board members met last night with Walmart’s Director of Community Affairs and other stakeholders in the neighborhood. If things remain on schedule, Walmart may open in mid-October instead of November as earlier projected.
Three-to-four months prior to the store’s opening a job center will be opened in the neighborhood and Ward 4 residents who are interested in working in retail are encouraged to apply. Applicants must be computer savvy, because all applications will be on line and will take about 30 minutes to an hour to complete. Anyone interested in learning about full or part-time jobs with Walmart, can get an overview at www.walmartjobsguide.com. A preemployment assessment test may be required.
