Wal-Mart plans to fill up to 95 new jobs being created at its Neighborhood Market in Farmington that is slated to open this summer.

A temporary hiring center has opened inside the Walmart Supercenter located at 2875 W. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in Fayetteville. Applications will be accepted from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday and applicants may also apply online.

According to store manager Jesse Pinkston, the store will be hiring full- and part-time help.

“I began with Walmart in 1997 as an hourly associate and have moved my way up in the company. I look forward to meeting others who want to build careers here at Walmart,” said Pinkston.

The majority of new employees will begin work in July to help prepare the store for its grand opening. Walmart provides a benefits program to eligible full- and part-time associates.

Through Walmart’s Veterans Welcome Home Commitment, the company will offer a job to any qualified veteran who has been honorably discharged within the past 12 months. Interested veterans may find out more at Walmart Careers.
