Walmart Canada announced the opening of 47 hiring centres across the country to support the company’s unprecedented growth plans and hiring for new talent. By January 31, 2013, the company plans to complete at least 73 projects including building new stores and expanding, remodelling or relocating existing stores.

Included in the projects are most of the 39 former Zellers stores for which Walmart Canada purchased leasehold rights in June 2011 and which will reopen as Walmart stores in this fiscal year.

“We are extremely excited to be adding more than 4,000 new associates to our team,” said Bob Hakeem, senior vice president, People, Walmart Canada. Walmart is a company where associates have a genuine passion to help Canadians save money so they can live better. We are a company that works with communities to improve the world we live in, where diversity is expected and inclusion the norm. Whether you are looking for a career in retail or a part time job, we want to hear from you.”

Walmart Canada pharmacies are also in the midst of a significant hiring phase. “We have already hired many pharmacy associates that previously worked for Zellers and are looking to fill additional positions,” said Eric Muir, senior vice president, Health and Wellness, Walmart Canada.

Walmart Canada has already hired 900 new associates this year from sales associates to managers for new positions in its stores across the country, to field operations and Home Office positions, and will staff an additional 3,100 new positions. By January 31, 2013, 94,000 associates will be employed at Walmart Canada.

Walmart Canada operates a growing chain of discount stores and supercentres with more than 330 locations nationwide serving more than one million customers each day.
