LANCASTER, Texas, Feb. 6, 2023 – Walmart is hiring up to 500 associates, including Asset Protection, Systems and Maintenance roles at its 730,000-square-foot automated grocery distribution center in Lancaster, Texas. A large portion of the roles in this facility will be tech-focused jobs.
“We’re excited to bring this automated grocery distribution center to the city of Lancaster and offer the community cutting-edge job opportunities that can grow into great careers within Walmart’s supply chain, ultimately helping save their neighbors time and money on groceries,” said Ervin Goad, general manager, Grocery Distribution Center #8348.
Automated technology at the Lancaster facility will help move more than two times the volume of a traditional grocery distribution center while improving accuracy, quality and speed. These efficiencies mean less heavy lifting and operating for associates, engaging tech-focused careers and ultimately cost savings that can be passed on to customers.

Other roles will be brought on later as Walmart begins to ramp operations in the facility.
