CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (WBOY) — Walmart plans to hire 40,000 U.S. associates this holiday season, the company announced on its official blog Wednesday.

The company said it will start by offering overtime to current associates who want it, and then offer the option for those who want to earn extra money working on a temporary basis.

These opportunities will include:

  • Seasonal in-store associates to assist customers shopping in-store or using Walmart pickup and delivery services.
  • Full-time permanent truckers.
  • Customer service associates in its call centers.

According to the post, Walmart’s average salary in the United States is more than $17 an hour and three-quarters of its salaried managers started out as hourly associates. It outlines a number of other benefits, including medical coverage, free counseling sessions, paid time off, sick leave, and 401(k) matching for full-time employees.
