Hi Roshia, they probably won't start hiring for quite a while since they just starting working the land, but I'll see if I can get some info from the Walmart folks -- likely after the holidays.

I didn't like it when they moved Walmart from Wesley Chapel Rd to Panola. I've lived here since 1983 and this area has went down hill. I guess we can bring the people from Wesley Chapel to Panola on down to Stonecrest Mall. I hope they have more coming in the front door than going out the back door... This is one of the reasons they closed Ingles on Panola and Covington Hwy where the Big Lot is located because of the theft.. DeKalb County, Rich? Not in this area..

As much as i agree with other's about this walmart being less than 5 miles away from the one on Panola. I feel like it will be the same as the ones who protested about the walmart on Memorial Drive,but i gurantee you those same ones who said we don't want the Walmart here was the main ones in thier shopping! Im just glad more jobs are coming,but i would appreciate the store being kept up to standards as the walmarts in the upscale parts of Metro Atlanta.

The "jobs" Walmart is so called bringing leaves very little to be desired. I don't shop there anymore, Sams either haven't in the past year and half. They may hire, not paying at a living wage, hours reduces to barely PT, slashing or totally cutting off benefits altogether and the people hired were hired under temp status not even permanent PT workers. The place is a wasteland and I hate to see it over running the communities nearby. They bring nothing worthwhile. Greedy mega corporation that caused pain to many I'll never support them. Many of my friends work there and want to quit after decades of service its that bad, they are being forced out by lack of hours. One friend 18 years she's been with the company they forced her out because the stores don't want to pay her anymore. They told her to quit or go PT. Going PT reduced her pay from $18.50 an hour to $7.75. 40 hrs a week to 18-22 hrs a week. They terminated her at one store, hired her as a TEMP at another store in another state for $7.75, after all these year. That is one person, one of many stories that I know of personally.
