Walmart Neighborhood Market Opens Turlock Hiring Center

David Fransen

Looking for a job? A hiring center for Turlock's under-construction Walmart Neighborhood Market opened Monday, promising as many as 95 full- and part-time jobs.

“We are excited to add the first Walmart Neighborhood Market to Turlock and bring good jobs with great career opportunities to the area,” said store manager Everton Lira.

Walmart spokesperson Delia Garcia told in April that “the majority” of positions at Walmart are full-time. The average hourly full-time Walmart employee earns $12.93 per hour in California, she said.

Walmart offers health and well-being benefits, according to the company, and matching 401(k) contributions to eligible associates. Associates also have access to quarterly incentives, discounted merchandise, life insurance, and a stock purchase program.

Special Walmart hiring practices offer an additional benefit to returning veterans. Any qualified veteran who was honorably discharged within the past 12 months will be offered a job through Walmart's Veterans Welcome Home Commitment.

The new store, under construction at the former home of Turlock's Mervyn's store, will open this summer, Walmart said. Most employees would begin work in July.

The Hiring Center will be open 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. The Hiring Center is located at 2101 Geer Rd., Ste. 107. Applications are also accepted online at

    Here is a math problem: How many minimum waged WalMart workers given 29 hours a week would it take to equal one years salary ($245,892.00) of the Turlock City Manager Roy Wasden?

      20 hours, ask Wasden. If they work more than 20 hours they will be entitled to medical benefits and that is not acceptable. City of Turlock is cutting all part time staff to 20 hours, to avoid the Obamacare mandate.

    I think it absurd that they want to sell the War Memorial AND the skate park to TID. Absolutely unthinkable. The city needs to listen to the citizens opinions on this rather than their own paltry minds!

      Um, so why did you post your rant under the Walmart article?
