Amazon, Publix, Walmart Hiring Thousands In Florida Amid Coronavirus Shopping Surge

Now hiring sign

The bonus, which will add up to more than $365 million, will be given to all US hourly associates in stores, clubs, supply chain, and offices. "We're looking for people who see Walmart as a chance to earn some extra money and perform a vital service to their community".

Anyone interested in applying can fill out an application here. The company is looking for part- and full-time delivery drivers, pizza cookers, customer service representatives, managers and licensed truck drivers for its supply chain centers and stores. While numerous new jobs will be temporary, some of the jobs are expected to become permanent, the company said. "We want to reward our associates for their hard work and recognize them for the work that is in front of us".

A spokesman for the retail conglomerate said the new roles are for "delivery drivers, personal shoppers, our distribution centers, and our call center". This compensation covers over 90,000 frontline employees.

Amazon is hiring 100,000 new workers in full-time and part-time roles. "Our store team members are working incredibly hard, in a very challenging and uncertain time and we're grateful for all they do each day", said Walgreens President, Richard Ashworth.

Along with Dollar General, Papa John's, Domino's, and Pizza Hut say they plan to hire additional workers.

Papa John's is one of three major pizza chains looking to take advantage of all the restaurant closings across the country. "We hope people who've been laid off will come work with us until they're able to go back to the jobs they had".

Wall Street jumps on hopes of US$2 trillion stimulus
US senators will vote Wednesday. "It's unprecedented and the highest it's been since the metric even began in the '60s", he said. The Senate will vote on the rescue package later on Wednesday and the House of Representatives is expected to follow soon after.

The hiring process will occur throughout the end of May and will include positions in stores, clubs, distribution centers and fulfillment centers.

In particular, Domino's is recruiting 1,000 new employees to work at more than 100 stores in the Chicago metro area. "Our corporate and franchise stores want to make sure they're not only feeding people, but also providing opportunity to those looking for work at this time, especially those in the heavily impacted restaurant industry".

Still, these new jobs are an option for many workers who find themselves suddenly unemployed because of the coronavirus.

Albertsons Companies, which owns Shaw's and Star Market, chose to partner with companies who have had to furlough, or cut the hours of their employees, in a quest to fill 30,000 new jobs, according to a news release.

"We know millions of Americans who are usually employed at this time are temporarily out of work, and at the same time we're now seeing strong demand in our stores", Walmart president and CEO Doug McMillon said in the release. The company expects to have a "surge in mobile orders" on its mobile app as government advisories continue to force people to stay at home.

"This will provide job opportunities and ensure 7Eleven stores remain clean and in-stock with the goods our customers need during this critical time", the company's president and CEO Joe DePinto said in a statement.
