Walmart will hire about 400 workers for its new Supercenter at 50th Street and Ames Avenue and new Neighborhood Market at 90th and Lake Streets. Both stores are scheduled to open in early January.

The Supercenter is hiring about 300; the Neighborhood Market, 100.

Both locations will have full-time and part-time positions available, including supervisory positions. Applicants should begin work in December to prepare the stores for their January openings.

Walmart will hold a job fair for both stores Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Heartland Workforce Solutions at 5752 Ames Ave.

The average wage for full-time hourly Walmart employees in Nebraska is $12.38. The company provides benefits to eligible full-time and part-time employees, including health benefits, discounts on merchandise, employee stock purchase programs and matching 401(k) contributions.

To facilitate hiring, Walmart has established two temporary hiring centers:

>> Walmart Supercenter Hiring Center: 5094 Ames Ave., open Mondays through Fridays, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Saturdays, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

>> Walmart Neighborhood Market Hiring Center: 3213 N. 90th St., open Mondays through Fridays, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Saturday, 8 a.m. to noon.

Both locations will take applications for either store, Walmart Supercenter manager Todd Kjosen said. Applicants also can apply at careers.walmart.com.

Walmart also will offer a job to any qualified veteran who has been honorably discharged in the last 12 months. Veterans can learn more at walmartcareerswithamission.com.
