Walmart is hiring 140 full-time employees at its Hammond-area distribution center to support continued growth at the worlds largest brick-and-mortar retailer.
The company already has 745 employees at the center, which serves 124 Walmart stores across the region. The additional hires are part of a move nationally to add employees at its distribution centers.
Walnart notes in August it recorded its 20th consecutive quarter of same-store sales growth in the U.S. E-commerce sales have gone up by 37% as the company continues to push services such as online grocery pickup in which customers place orders and employees haul the items to the customer's car or pickup towers, where customers can grab their online orders from a high-tech vending machine that reads a bar code on their smartphone.

Well maybe they can now stock the 5 count can of biscuits!
Unbelievable that they quit selling those at our local Walmart.
They must have some real idiot in charge of inventory selection.
But I guess the good news is they have all the Christmas items for sale and have had since Labor Day!/S
Some folks in this area fought this center when it was announced to be built. What an asset for the area.
There's a Cajun AOC?
Whenever anyone found out I worked fot Walmart, they inevitably asked this question. EVERY time:
You work at the distribution center?
NO! I work at an ACTUAL WALMART!
Never understood why EVERYONE asked that question.
Maybe it’s because I can’t spell ‘for’...
The employees better set aside some $$ to pay for their future carpal tunnel syndrome surgeries.
