Walmart Wants to Hire 40,000 Holiday Workers, Fewer Than Last Year

Updated on

Walmart Inc., the largest private-sector employer in the US, aims to hire 40,000 seasonal workers for the holiday season this year -- a sizable decrease from 2021. 

A year ago, the retail giant said it would add 150,000 jobs, many of them permanent, during the year’s busiest shopping season. In the coming months, Walmart will start by offering additional hours to current employees who want to work more, according to a company statement. After that, it will look to hire outside help.
