MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) - Walmart has announced three upcoming job information sessions for potential employees for the long-awaited distribution center coming to the Theodore community.
Mobile County Commissioner Jerry Carl posted about the sessions on his Facebook page Wednesday night. According to Carl's post, the job fair will give anyone with interest a chance to ask questions about the positions Walmart will be looking to fill.
Walmart said they are prepared to train people with little to no job skills, Carl writes.
"Walmart will be looking for 550 new employees so please notify your friends and family, and encourage them to come and see if they find a job that will expand their skill set!"
