The average wage for regular, full-time employees is $12.79, plus benefits.

“We are hiring full- and part-time associates,” said store manager Jaime Onibasa. “I can tell you from firsthand experience that Walmart provides great jobs with opportunities for career growth and good benefits. I’m glad we can be part of the solution for Downey residents who want a better job or to start working again.”

The grocery store is expected to open late this year at 12270 Paramount Blvd. in the former Alin’s Party Supply store.
