Walmart hiring for new grocery store in Surf City


SURF CITY, NC (WWAY) -- Walmart is looking to hire nearly 100 workers at its new store in Surf City.

The retail giant says it will hire up to 95 people to work at its new Walmart Neighborhood Market getting ready to open this spring. Walmart Neighborhood Market is smaller than the typical Supercenter and includes a full line of groceries.

The store is hiring both full- and part-time employees. The company has set up a temporary hiring center at 13775 Highway 50. Applications will be accepted from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday. You can also apply online.

Walmart says through its Veterans Welcome Home Commitment, the company will offer a job to any qualified veteran who has been honorably discharged within the past 12 months and meets Walmart's standard hiring criteria.

Most of the people hired will begin work in April to help get the store ready for its grand opening.

hiring center

Where is the temporary hiring center. If you put that address in Google, it literally shows you a dot in the middle of the road. GPS won't allow you to type it in. What's a good contact number?


lol lol i worked for

lol lol i worked for walmart 16 years walmart is worst to work for. dean bailey

That explains much

That explains why you think others should take care of you.


Great!!!!....100 Part-Time jobs with no benefits!

which will

provide income for students needing part time work; income for stay at home Moms who can work evenings or week-ends. And those are just 2 areas.

Guess it's better for them to sit on their duffs and collect entitlements if they have your mind set.

which will...

Which will still keep the thousands looking for FULL TIME work sitting at home collecting "entitilements"...or better yet, some of these people looking for full time employment are forced to take these part time jobs and Wal-Mart lets me and you pay for their health care and food stamps instead of hiring full-time employees and paying them a living wage. Can't have it both ways SurfCityTom. Enjoy your new Wal-Mart.

Surf City has a permanent populace of about 1,200 year round residents.

Exclude Wal-Mart, Lowes, Food Lion, and Charter, local businesses each employ an average of under 25; and most are part time.

And with the exception of Charter, the other 3 listed all rely on part time employees.

This is a large opportunity for a community our size.

Frankly, I'd rather subsidize health care costs for folks who are making an effort to improve their lives then fund entitlements so worthless weasels can have a lifetime of no work with free eats, housing, and health care.

Businesses are in it to make

Businesses are in it to make money. They have have to have practices that bring them a profit. It's not Wal-Mart's responsibility to provide full-time employment for the world.

Walmart 2020

Businesses are in it to make money? Really? Thanks for that brilliant piece of insight Guest2020! Glad to know I haven't been doing it wrong all these years. The problem is that Wal-Mart has figured out the best way for them to make the most money is to hire a bunch of part-time employees, pay them minimum wage and then encourage them to go to our local DSS and apply and qualify for food stamps and medicaid. So instead of them paying for benefits or a living wage, they let the American Taxpayers do it for them. Brilliant! Wal-mart is the biggest "Welfare Queen" in America.

beg your pardon

No one is paying for my health or my food, and I am one of those part timers you all are so politely bashing.
Care to walk a Walmart mile in my shoes. It's easy to pass along opinions about things you've never experience.
Same as it's just as easy to smile and be friendly to your Walmart cashier or any other worker than to whine and complain as soon as you stand in front of them.


My intention was not to bash people who work part-time. And trust me, I've been there myself. I've experienced the joy of part-time work for a large retail chain. My quibble is with the business model that Wal-Mart has established that requires the American Taxpayer to subsidize their employees pay.
