Walmart announced Monday it will hire more than 2,300 seasonal associates in Illinois for the holiday season.
In addition to offering a chance to earn extra money during the holidays at one of the 157 stores in Illinois, starting salaries of at least $9 an hour will also provide opportunities to earn at least 75 cents per hour above the state’s minimum wage.
Walmart traditionally brings on additional help during the holiday season after offering current associates the opportunity to sign up for additional hours. Employees initially hired as seasonal sales associates, cashiers and stockers often continue as full-time employees and progress within the company. Last year, more than half of Walmart’s seasonal employees nationwide continued with the retailer as permanent employees.
