Tennessee Walmart Needs Hundreds of New Workers
The Walmart stores, America's largest grocer and one of the few big-box retailers that continue to be open need hundreds of new employees in Tennessee. At the moment, they are falling short of workers to stock the shelves and to take care of customer service.
"It's an incredibly competitive work environment right now. People don't necessarily have to have a job right now," Jessica Johnson, a store lead at a Tennessee Walmart, told WCRB. "Our store and the surrounding stores are looking to hire between 100 and 150 associates to work 10 p.m. to 7 a.m." 
A Walmart company representative said, "We do want our customers to be able to come in and get to what they need quickly, and we don't want them to have to walk around carts of freight or associates stocking" They have taken a few steps to manage the situation: most of the shelf stocking is being done overnight. The number of self-checkout aisles has been increased. However, one cashier is needed for every four self-checkouts. More people are being added to a third shift to provide customer assistance.
Increased Customer Presence Both Online And Shopping In-Store
Tim Cooper, senior vice president of Walmart U.S. Supply Chain, told the Gazette. that customers depend on Walmart more than ever before for their daily needs. They have been experiencing increased customer presence both online and shopping in-store. Cooper said that their centers for grocery distribution have proved to be very vital in ensuring local stores meeting the needs of the families.
The Plan Is To Hire Thousands Of New Supply Chain Workers All Over The USA.
Flush with spending money thanks to President Biden's $2 trillion stimulus plan, Americans need more from their local Walmart. Furthermore, many people in Tennessee do not feel the pressure to get back to work immediately. They receive unemployment benefits of $275 a week that they can claim up to 26 weeks. Employers are therefore competing fiercely for human resources.
$21.90 an hour in Missouri Walmart
In Missouri, a Walmart distribution center wants to hire 60 employees. The hourly pay is a never-before figure of $21.90 an hour. Employees also get complimentary visits to the ophthalmologist and dentist. They also give an incentive program for employees who want to study for college degrees.
It comes as very welcome news. Despite reports of increased employment opportunities like Walmart's case, the United States is very much steeped in mass unemployment. Twenty-two million Americans have claimed jobless benefits since March 14.
