Walmart is hiring up to 60 associates, including order fillers and lift drivers, to support its grocery distribution center in New Albany.

“Whether customers are shopping in stores or online, they are relying on Walmart now more than ever for the necessary items they need every day,” said Tim Cooper, senior vice president, Walmart U.S. Supply Chain. “Our Grocery Distribution Centers are critical to helping ensure our local stores have what our customers need to feed their families, so we’re looking for the very best talent we can find to both help us meet demand and grow jobs into careers.”
Across the country, the company is planning to hire thousands of new Walmart Supply Chain associates, including up to 60 at the New Albany distribution center. Some applicants will have the opportunity to receive on-the-spot conditional job offers.
