Lady’s Island Wal-Mart is hiring to fill 200 jobs before the new store opens later this spring, a company news release said Wednesday.
Construction of the store on Sea Island Parkway and Airport Circle is almost complete. Store management created a temporary hiring center at 3 Celadon Drive on Lady’s Island.
Applications are being accepted from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday; from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday; and from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.
Job-seekers can also apply online at www.careers.walmart.com. Most of the new employees will begin in April ahead of a grand opening, the release said. A specific opening date has not been announced.
The openings are for full-time and part-time jobs. Both offer benefits.
A store program guarantees jobs to military veterans who have been honorably discharged since Memorial Day 2013.
Wal-Mart employs more than 30,000 people in South Carolina, according to the release.
The store on Lady’s Island began construction early last year amid some controversy. The 26-acre site required a significant amount of fill dirt and the development spurred traffic and planning questions.
