Walmart Canada is to immediately hire 10,000 new associates as the company says it’s experiencing high demand for pickup and delivery, during the COVID-19 pandemic. Walmart has decided, for now, to allow home grocery deliveries to be left at a customer’s door to minimize contact.
The company is investing a major $3.5 billion into all facets of the business to generate significant growth and to make the online and in-store shopping experience simpler, faster, and more convenient for customers. The new associates are needed for many important roles. Walmart did not provide any details on whether the jobs would be permanent or temporary.
