Job seekers can apply at careers.walmart.com or visit the hiring center at 3351 Wrightsboro Road, Suite 206, from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays and from 8 a.m. to noon Saturdays.
Work on the 148,000-square-foot store began last spring at Wrightsboro and North Leg roads.
Construction of another Wal-Mart Supercenter on Edgefield Road in North Augusta is also underway. The store is expected to open late this year.
