Hiring underway for Aiken Sam's Club

  • Follow Your Business

Hiring is underway for a Sam’s Club in Aiken that is scheduled to open this fall.

The store, on Jefferson Davis Highway near Robert M. Bell Parkway, has openings for about 175 workers. Those interested can apply at a hiring and membership center that opened Monday at 156 University Parkway, or online at careers.walmart.com.

The center will remain open seven days a week until the store is complete, said Gerald Raymond, who will manage the Aiken location.

The company is seeking employees for part-time, full-time and management positions, Raymond said.

Construction on the estimated 136,000-square-foot store began in late February. The Aiken store will be the second Sam’s Club in the Augusta area. The other store is on Bobby Jones Expressway in Martinez.

West Augusta and Martinez two different places!!!

The new Sam's Club in Aiken County is a good sign for the metro area. The Sam's Club on Bobby Jones is located in West Augusta, and not Martinez. If you Google Sam's Club they don't even use the Martinez address. Any other time Martinez is always located in Columbia County. Does Richmond County ever get a fair shake? When it comes to reporting crime it's the 'Augusta Chronicle', but the opening of new stores/businesses turns into metro Augusta. The majority of positive news should be focused on Augusta if the majority of bad new is. The media never had downtown in the spotlight, and the low crime stats in the CBD didn't get release until the recent crime. Many of the positive rankings didn't get mentioned(many of them were never mentioned in the Chronicle before) until one article concentrating on if developers are going over them. The rankings are definitely 'eye catching', and offers the public something to be prideful about.

When does the Chronicle advertise homes in West Augusta with a Martinez address??

So what?

The CBD is what? 4 blocks? Give it a rest already. Nobody cares about your CBD.

Yeah, a good sign... of low wage jobs, little to no benefits, and cheap Chinese goods.
