CHAPEL HILL – Walmart has opened a temporary hiring center in Chatham County and is looking for employees for their store which is scheduled to open this summer just over the Chatham County line.

“What we’re looking for is just people that want to come on board with Wal-Mart and get a great career,” says store manager, Chris Smith. “Walmart has a lot to offer, and hopefully people can benefit from that.”

A lot of people in Orange County were sad to see that the store is being built just over the County line and taking the sales taxes with it.

However, Smith says this store will provide many opportunities for local people, and he’s a great example.

“I’ve been with the company a little shy of 13 years, and I started out as an hourly associate,” Smith says. “This is my second store in North Carolina. Walmart is just chock-full of opportunities for people.”

The temporary Walmart hiring center is located at 50101 Governors Drive, Suite 168. It is open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Interested applicants can also apply online by clicking here.
