Walmart Logistics Once Again Hiring for Cornwall Distribution HubMarch 9, 2020
Cornwall Ontario – Walmart Logistics is once again actively recruiting for its distribution hub in Cornwall.
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.
Job Fair Cancelled
After carefully considering the growing concerns around COVID-19, Walmart Logistics has made the difficult decision to cancel the Job Fair scheduled for March 18, 2020 at the Cornwall Civic Complex.
This was a tough call to make as Job Fairs are incredibly important events for Walmart and it is one of our ways to support job growth in the City of Cornwall, but we need to prioritize the health and safety of our candidates, associates and community,” says Kayla Steele, Human Resources Administrator with Walmart Logistics. “We remain committed to our hiring efforts in Cornwall and invite all applicants to visit our career website (careers.walmart.ca) and apply to our current available jobs.”
Alternately, job seekers can also bring their resume to the following locations:
- 2401 SCM Way
- 1501 Industrial Park Drive
Current job postings can be viewed on the ChooseCornwall.ca Job Board.
