Jason Collie, general manager of Meridian's new Sam's Club store, said Tuesday that job applications will be accepted beginning Wednesday morning.
"We're going to hire probably approximately 130 to 140 people," Collie said. "Starting entry level will be $6.50 an hour depending on experience. We will pay more than that, depending on different backgrounds, work history. We will have full time positions. Part-time positions will be available.
The Sam's Club employment office is located in East Gate Shopping Center at 2203 Hwy. 39 North in Meridian. It's in a strip of offices next to the Ole Farm Beef House. It will be open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. applications must be submitted in person at the office.
