Wal-Mart will open a hiring center Friday on Wrightsboro Road for its Augusta store, which is under construction down the street from Augusta Mall.
Wal-Mart will hire about 300 associates to work at the store at Wrightsboro and North Leg roads. Most employees will begin work in February to help prepare the store for its grand opening in the spring, according to store Manager Rodney Baker.
The hiring center is at 3351 Wrightsboro Road, Suite 206. It is open to take applications from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays and from 8 a.m. to noon Saturdays.
