ALABASTER – The under-construction Walmart Neighborhood Market in Alabaster is looking to hire 95 employees to man the new store, and has set up a temporary hiring center in Alabaster’s Southbrook Village Shopping Center.
The company has set up the hiring center at 450 First St. S.W., which is near the Chubb’s Grub Station restaurant. The center will be open Mondays-Fridays from 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
Those interested in working at the Neighborhood Market can apply in person at the hiring center, or online at Careers.walmart.com.
Through its Veterans Welcome Home program, Walmart will offer jobs to any eligible U.S. veteran honorably discharged from active duty since Memorial Day 2013. To learn more about the Welcome Home program, visit Walmartcareerswithamission.com.
“We are looking to build a team of hardworking individuals who are excited to explore the professional growth opportunities offered by Walmart,” Alabaster Neighborhood Market store Manager Jonathan Webb wrote in a statement.
Most new employees hired this month will start working in August to help prepare the store for its grand opening.
Construction crews are on schedule to complete the new Walmart Neighborhood Market, which is off Alabama 119 across from Publix in Alabaster, by fall of this year.
Once it opens later this year, the Neighborhood Market will be the third in Shelby County. Walmart previously opened a Neighborhood Market store off Shelby County 17 in Helena and on Valleydale Road in North Shelby in former Winn Dixie supermarket locations.
Walmart Neighborhood Markets are smaller than the company’s Superstores, and primarily focus on grocery offerings, along with a limited selection of non-grocery items.
In December 2014, the Alabaster City Council approved an agreement with the MAP Development company to install new traffic signals at the intersection of Alabama 119 and Fulton Springs Road to allow for the new store. MAP will cover the cost of installing the new signal and modifying the intersection.
