Retailer creates customer service jobs in Pennsylvania
Posted on October 26, 2015
Walmart has created a new fulfillment center along with customer service jobs in Pennsylvania.
The facility is one of two Walmart centers in the Lehigh Valley dedicated to filling online orders, part of a next-generation network to support the company’s rapidly growing e-commerce business.
“We are grateful to the Lehigh Valley for welcoming us with open arms, and we’re proud of the role we’ve played in strengthening this community with the jobs and community support we’re bringing to the area,” said Mike McGraw, general manager of the Bethlehem fulfillment center.
“This project will give workers new opportunities while helping to grow the economy throughout the entire Lehigh Valley,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “New business expansion like this shows why it is such an exciting time to live and work in the growing and vibrant Lehigh Valley community.”
As part of Walmart’s and the Walmart Foundation’s $2 billion commitment to fight hunger through 2015, Walmart stores in Pennsylvania donated approximately 12.9 million pounds of food, or the equivalent of 10.8 million meals, in fiscal year 2014.
Gov. Wolf and his family have been personally involved in the fight against hunger locally and across Pennsylvania. The governor has donated tens of thousands of dollars to Pennsylvania food banks, and he and his family routinely volunteer time to help out and serve food at local pantries.
