Cornwall, Ontario – Here we grow again. Walmart Logistics is once again looking to add to its workforce and is developing a number of strategies to find employees for its Cornwall Distribution Hub.
One of those strategies will be another job fair at the Harmony Distribution Centre in the Cornwall Business Park on Tuesday, September 11. The job fair will be the fifth such job fair Walmart Logistics has held this year.
“Our job fairs allow job seekers to apply directly on site and helps us to identify qualified candidates quickly,” said Sheila Smith, Regional Human Resources Manager with Walmart Logistics.
The job fair will run from 10:00am to 5:30pm at the Harmony Distribution Centre at 1501 Industrial Park Drive.
Walmart Logistics will also be participating in the Cornwall Job Fair being organized by the Social Development Council of SDG on October 3, and will be represented at the National Job Fair in Montreal in mid-October. In between that, the company is exploring ways to attract Canadians from other provinces to Cornwall.
“Cornwall provides a great place to live and work. It is a family-focused community and its beautiful natural surroundings supports a healthy lifestyle,” says. Ms. Smith. “Our Cornwall Distribution Hub offers a wide variety of positions and very good opportunities to have a rewarding career in logistics and supply chain management.”
The Cornwall Distribution Hub supplies Walmart stores throughout Eastern Canada with quality merchandise including grocery products. The Hub is located in the Cornwall Business Park and is also home to the Walmart fleet operations.
This latest recruitment effort follows similar job fairs hosted by Walmart Logistics over the past 3 years as the company continues to ramp up operations within the Cornwall Distribution Hub. Positions that will be part of this recruitment event include:
- Logistics: Part time and Full time Warehouse Associates & Leadership Roles
- Fleet: Full time Drivers
“The Cornwall Distribution Hub is a respectful, supportive team-based environment where associates can further their careers in warehousing and leadership,” says Kayla Steele, Human Resources Administrator. “We offer competitive wages and health benefits, along with company matched pension and stock purchase plans.”
