Walmart anticipates hiring about 1,200 South Carolina associates for the upcoming holiday season, the retail company said.
Starting salaries of at least $9 per hour will provide opportunities to earn at least $1.75 per hour above the current federal and state minimum wage. South Carolina is home to 80 Walmart Supercenters and Walmart general merchandise stores.
“Walmart has also made a commitment to provide shoppers with a customer service-oriented holiday shopping experience for both in-store and online shoppers, as seasonal department managers will be hired to help customers conveniently pick up their online orders in stores across the nation,” the company said.
The company traditionally brings on additional help after offering current associates additional hours. Seasonal sales associates, cashiers and stockers often continue on as full-time employees, it said. Last year, more than half of part-time holiday workers nationwide continued on full-time.
