Walmart Logistics is Holding a Virtual Hiring EventMarch 26, 2021
Cornwall Ontario – Walmart Logistics is looking to hire upwards of 150 people for its distribution hub in Cornwall, and to do so it will be holding a Virtual Hiring Event on April 1.
The event will connect job seekers with Walmart officials virtually via a web platform. Applicants can choose from 14 different interview times and must RSVP in advance to secure their interview.
“Virtual hiring events are a great way for us to connect to potential future employees, especially during the pandemic,” says Rene-Paul Gomis, Regional Manager with Walmart Logistics. “Hiring is a human process, and we are looking to talk with people online (either through chat, on the phone, or video) to see if we are a fit for each other.”
The Cornwall Distribution Hub supplies Walmart stores throughout Eastern Canada with quality merchandise including grocery products. The Hub is located in two separate buildings in the Cornwall Business Park, which is also home to the Walmart fleet operations.
“The Cornwall Distribution Hub is a respectful, supportive team-based environment where associates can further their careers in warehousing and leadership,” says Kayla Steele, Human Resources Administrator with Walmart Logistics. “We offer competitive wages and health benefits, along with company matched pension and stock purchase plans.”
Beyond the distribution centres, opportunities also exist with Walmart Fleet, which transports the goods to Walmart stores throughout Eastern Canada.
Career opportunities in supply chain management and transportation have been on the rise in Eastern Ontario, making logistics one of the hottest sectors in the region. This growth has been led by Walmart as it expands its state-of-the-art Cornwall Distribution Hub.
