Walmart on Route 1 in Saugus to begin hiring for October opening

Walmart has opened an employment office on Route 1 north in Saugus, where the mass discounter is building a new two-story supercenter in the heart of the powerful retail strip.

About 125 jobs, including managers, stockers, cashiers and sales clerks, need to be filled in time for the store’s grand opening on Oct. 15, a spokesman said.

Teenagers and college students, who often find themselves shut out of retail employment due to competition from older workers, will be considered for the mix of new hires.

Walmart’s fulltime associates earn an average of $13.87 per hour.
