Walmart is opening a new store in Lake Nona this winter, and the store is already benefiting the community by bringing up to 300 jobs which will be filled by local residents. A temporary hiring center has opened at 5425 S. Semoran Blvd in Orlando.

According to store manager James Schroder, the store will be hiring both full- and part-time associates. “We are excited to bring this new store to the Lake Nona community, and look forward to meeting potential applicants as we build our team of associates,” said Schroder.
Walmart provides a benefits program to eligible full- and part-time associates. For example, it provides a variety of affordable health and well-being benefits, including health-care coverage with no lifetime maximum. Walmart also offers eligible associates matching 401(k) contributions of up to 6 percent of pay, discounts on general merchandise, an Associate Stock Purchase Program and company-paid life insurance. Additionally, eligible associates receive a quarterly cash bonus based on store performance.
A job at Walmart means competitive pay and career opportunities. Last year, Walmart promoted 18,860 of its associates in Florida to jobs with higher pay and more responsibility. In addition, 9,970 in Florida were converted from part-time to full-time.
In addition, Walmart will offer a job to any eligible U.S. veteran honorably discharged from active duty since the Veterans Welcome Home Commitment began on Memorial Day 2013. Since that time, more than 120,000 veterans nationwide have found positions with Walmart. Interested veterans may find out more at http://walmartcareerswithamission.com.
