Walmart is looking to hire more than 20,000 warehouse workers across the United States for the next three years to support the company’s warehouse operations, according to The Tennessean.
Walmart has already laid off more than 1,000 people across the country as it struggles to keep up with the rapidly expanding global marketplace.
Walmart is currently looking for an additional 200 to 250 warehouse workers, according the paper.
The job is for full-time, part-time and seasonal positions that are required to work on a minimum of two to three days per week, according The Tenneseean.
The jobs will pay $11 an hour with benefits.
The company says the positions are part-year and require “the ability to effectively perform tasks as well as learn new skills, including project management and customer service.”
Walmart is hoping to fill the warehouse positions in the Tennessee Valley region, which includes Knoxville, Memphis, and Nashville.
The news comes as the company is facing a wave of protests against its management.
Earlier this month, protesters marched through the company headquarters in Bentonville, Arkansas.
A federal judge last week issued an injunction against Walmart’s efforts to close its stores in several states, which led to the shutdown of some of its warehouses nationwide.
