Walmart Increases Staffing Levels For The Christmas Season

BENTONVILLE, Ark., Sept. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- "The holidays are a special time of the year for everyone, and we are ready to help customers have a great shopping experience at Walmart—whether they are looking for the perfect gift or are stocking up for a memorable holiday meal.

"This is our busiest time of the year and we are focused even more on providing excellent service to our shoppers throughout the holiday season. One way we do that is by ensuring our stores are adequately staffed by our associates.

"This year, we will be offering more hours to our existing associates and hiring more than 50,000 seasonal associates to staff our stores. That means when a customer needs help, a Walmart associate will be there to serve them. 

"We know many customers are continuing to struggle as a result of the economy and high unemployment levels, but they have shown us that they're resilient. They're committed to giving their families a memorable Christmas. And, we hope that every customer who shops at Walmart this Christmas will be able to add a few more gifts under the tree. By offering more hours and more jobs, we hope our associates can do the same.

"Throughout the holiday season, Walmart will be focused on helping more Americans have the Christmas they want and the Christmas they can afford."

- Gisel Ruiz, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Walmart U.S.
