Help wanted: Walmart’s new store in Yaphank hiring more than 400 workers


Tick tick. Pandemic unemployment benefits are set to expire in September.

Luckily for folks in this neck of the woods, there’s a new Walmart coming to town. Walmart needs to fill more than 400 hourly and hourly management positions at its new Yaphank store, set to open in November.

This will be a Walmart Supercenter, which will include full-service grocery, a home center, an auto care center, a pharmacy window, a garden center and a grocery pickup area.

The store announced this week that it has established a hiring center at 1490 William Floyd Parkway in Shirley. The new Walmart will be nestled inside The Boulevard, a 322-acre, mixed-use complex located at the northwest corner of the Long Island Expressway and William Floyd Parkway.

Walmart said the the starting salary for day positions is $16 an hour. The pay is $19.50 hourly for overnight associates and $19 and $24 for team leaders. The company said that all eligible employees — full- and par-time — receive affordable health care and insurance options.

The hiring center is now open Monday to Friday, from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Job candidates must apply online for positions in advance. Click here to apply. You can also text “jobs” to the number 240240.
