NEW ORLEANS, LA—TOMORROW, Mayor Mitch Landrieu, City officials and neighborhood leaders will join Walmart to announce the opening of the Walmart Hiring Center in New Orleans East for the hiring of approximately 300 associates. Walmart provides associates with more opportunities for career growth and greater economic security for their families than other companies in America.
Walmart broke ground on a new store in the former Lakeland Medical Center site at the Southwest corner of I-10 and Bullard Avenue in spring 2013. Once completed, the new store will provide jobs and access to fresh food to the New Orleans East community. The state-of-the-art store is expected to open by summer 2014.
The Walmart Hiring Center will accept applications Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Applicants may also apply online at http://careers.walmart.com.
