The retailer would be hiring 150,000 associates, and these include full-time, part-time and temporary positions in distribution centers and fulfillment centers.

"Our supply chain associates have been so vital to Walmart's ability to serve customers and communities during this time, and I am so proud of every one of them," said Greg Smith, Walmart's head of supply chain. "We're growing, expanding and looking for more people who want to make a difference providing for customers."

A person can apply online, get hired and begin working in a fulfillment center or distribution center in as little as 24 hours.

There is a temporary $2/hour pay increase for all hourly associates working in Walmart's e-commerce fulfillment centers, from now through Memorial Day. The business is also offering a $250 referral bonus to fulfilment center associates who refer a new hire. The newly hired associate also receives a $250 referral bonus.
