Store manager Chris Lazarou said the store will be hiring both full- and part-time associates.
"We are thrilled to add this Walmart to North Tonawanda and bring good jobs with career opportunities to the area," said Lazarou, who began his Walmart career in 1993 as an hourly associate at the Walmart in Niagara Falls. Lazarou said associates are needed to work in all areas of the new store.
Walmart's benefit program is available to eligible full- and part-time associates and provides a variety of affordable health and well-being benefits, including medical insurance with no lifetime maximum. Walmart also offers matching 401(k) contributions of up to 6 percent of pay, discounts on general merchandise for store associates, an associate stock purchase program and company-paid life insurance. Additionally, eligible associates receive a quarterly incentive based on store performance.
The majority of associates will begin work immediately to help prepare the store for its grand opening in August.
