Walmart has opened a temporary hiring center in anticipation of hiring about 265 workers for a soon-to-open new store in Elk Grove.
Officials said they expect the 148,200-square-foot general merchandise store at 10075 Bruceville Road to open in March.
The retailer has opened a temporary hiring center at 9561 Laguna Springs Drive, Suite 110, in Elk Grove, to screen job candidates.
The hiring center is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. Applicants can also apply online at www.careers.walmart.com
"We are hiring both full- and part-time associates," said Jorge Sabido, store manager.
The store opening will close out a lengthy road that saw some Elk Grove residents opposing Walmart's past plans, citing the potential for traffic, noise and crime.
