Walmart is beefing up its personnel amid a supply chain crunch felt across nearly every industry, coupled with a labor shortage squeeze.
In October, Walmart said it was navigating the supply chain ahead of the busy holiday season by sourcing holiday merchandise earlier than usual, chartering its own ships, and diverting shipments through less congested ports.
In September the company announced it was hiring 20,000 permanent supply-chain associates to meet growth demands.
Competitors Target (TGT) and Amazon (AMZN) are also looking to lure talent heading into the holidays. Amazon recently announced plans to hire 150,000 seasonal employees. The average salary for those seasonal jobs start at $18 per hour along with sign-on bonuses up to $3,000.
