Walmart looking to immediately hire 10,000 workers across Canada

Oct 9 2020, 7:31 am

Walmart Canada announced that it will immediately hire 10,000 new employees across the country.

Positions include fresh food associate, e-commerce store associate, warehouse associate, and customer service associate. A new feature for this hiring blitz: those interested in applying can send a text to 780-780 to visit the application page.

With Canadians facing high unemployment rates, these jobs will provide some much-needed relief as the second wave of COVID-19 hits some provinces.

The company hired another 10,000 employees at the start of the pandemic back in March.

“Walmart is all about people. It’s our people who make Walmart special and who represent us,” said Horacio Barbeito, President and CEO of Walmart Canada, in a release. “Walmart is a place where you can make the most of your talent and skills.”

The new jobs follow the announcement of a $3.5 billion investment in the company that they say will generate growth and make the online and in-store shopping experience easier for customers.

“If you are looking for a way to serve your community, are customer oriented and want to work with a winning team, we want to hear from you,” said Nabeela Ixtabalan, Executive Vice President, People and Corporate Affairs, in the release. “Walmart is a great place to work and we’re very proud to be able to offer new jobs to Canadians in communities across the country.”

Walmart operates almost 400 stores across the country and employs more than 90,000 Canadians.

Interested applicants can text 780-780 or apply at walmart.ca/careers.
