Walmart to Open in Fall Now Hiring

The store plans to hire about 200 employees.

Hiring has began for a new Walmart in the Southland Plaza Shopping Center off Palm Avenue, the company announced earlier this month.

The 75,000 square foot store that used to be a Mervyn's will open this fall, likely at the end of October or start of November, spokeswoman Melissa Cameron said.

Job seekers may apply at a temporary hiring facility at 1111 Bay Blvd., Suite A, in Chula Vista Monday to Friday from 7 a.m.-8 p.m. or online at careers.walmart.com

Work will begin for most of the store's 200 part- and full-time employees in September.

The Walmart will be one of six in South Bay, with three locations in Chula Vista.

people have to realize that there's bigger wal marts two exits north and south of this location...the only traffic this wal mart will get is local..

I agree with Libi, it's going to be a small Walmart. People will realize that it's not full size and will stop going. As far as Albertsons closing well SavUFoods is opening there now so that will also help traffic issues .... In other words y'all can bitch and complain all you want , outside of the current traffic issues none of you have any idea what's going to really happen. In addition, quit your whining about Walmart and unions, not going to happen.

'...quit your whining about Walmart and unions, not going to happen...." you got that right fun fact: wal mart has a special category of employee - they will never be worked enough hours to qualify for health care...

ib needs us states: "...Why are you concerned about the pay. California has the highest minimum wage in the counrty. ...' 1. not true....cali's minumum wage is 8.00/hr, connecticut and nevada are $8.25, oregon is $8.80, vermont is $8.46, washington $9.04 2. show me someone that thinks a person can live on minimum wage in san diego county and i'll show you someone that lives off government subsidies. which government handouts are you dependent upon ib needs us?

In any case IB needs a grocery store in general idk care if it's a Walmart, Save-a-lot or fresh n easy I just hate driving to the other side of palm to get what I need. Vons is to expensive 39 cents a lime la posta is 10 for a dollar! But la Posta is a small market so i have to still drive to the other side of palm. Just get a store open. As for the jobs.... a job is a job. Better then sitting at home on welfare getting high
