The state's largest employer is preparing to hire 425 workers in Apex.
OK, so not everyone wants to be a part-time greeter at a new Wal-Mart. But the store also needs full-time employees, including supervisors. And the retailer has done a lot during the past few years to polish its reputation, including improving benefits.
With the state's unemployment rate at 11 percent, one of the highest in the nation, expect Wal-Mart to receive plenty of applications.
Wal-Mart has set up a hiring center for the Apex store, which is expected to open in the fall at 3151 Apex Peak Way. Most new employees will start in September to help get the store ready to open.
The hiring center is at 1001 Airport Blvd. Suite 320, Morrisville. It's accepting applications 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. Monday to Friday, and 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. Saturday. You also can apply online here.
Wal-Mart also is opening a new store in Garner, near the intersection of N.C. 42 and Interstate 40, later this month.
As of July, Wal-Mart employed nearly 55,000 people across North Carolina.
