WISCONSIN — Walmart stores in Wisconsin are looking to hire a total of 600 additional employees to help with the holiday rush.

As the holidays near, people are heading out to get groceries for their Thanksgiving and Christmas meals, as well as to start shopping for Christmas.

Due to an increase in store visitors, Walmart is looking to hire additional employees to help fill pickup and delivery orders.

Wisconsin locations are not the only stores hiring, however. Stores across the country are bringing in extra help.

With these additional employees, shoppers can avoid going in the store altogether by using Walmart's delivery and pickup options.

The new positions across the country come after Walmart hired 500,000 since March, and another 20,000 seasonal associates for Walmart’s eCommerce fulfillment centers.
