INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Nov. 19, 2013)– Walmart is looking to hire up to 95 new people at the new Fishers Neighborhood Market, and a local church is hosting a job fair this week.

The job fair will be at BridgeWay Community Church on Thursday, Nov. 21 from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.

The new Walmart Neighborhood Market is opening in January at 131st St. and Highway 37. A Neighborhood Market is a smaller Walmart store which offers a convenient way to pick up fresh groceries and household items at the same every day low prices. Each Walmart Neighborhood Market is about 40,000 square feet.

“We are excited to add a new Walmart Neighborhood Market to Indianapolis and bring good jobs with great career opportunities to Fishers and Hamilton County,” Mekey McAllen, the new store’s manager said. “We’re looking forward to being an important part of the Fishers community.”

The church’s address is  12945 Parkside Dr., Fishers, Ind. You can visit their website here.

“This is a great opportunity for our church to provide a true community service by helping those who need and want jobs to find employment at a new local employer,” said Craig Parker, BridgeWay Community Church Lead Pastor.

The majority of new associates will begin work in December to help prepare the store for its grand opening in January.

Through Walmart’s Veterans Welcome Home Commitment, the company will offer a job to any qualified veteran who has been honorably discharged within the past 12 months. Veterans must be within 12 months of active duty and meet Walmart’s standard hiring criteria.

Walmart provides benefits programs for eligible full- and part-time associates. For example, the company provides a variety of affordable health and well-being benefits including health-care coverage with no lifetime maximum. Walmart also offers eligible associates matching 401(k) contributions of up to six percent of pay, discounts on general merchandise, an Associate Stock Purchase Program and company-paid life insurance. Additionally, eligible associates receive a quarterly incentive based on store performance.
