COMPTON ( — Walmart says a new Compton store opening this winter will need locals to fill as many as 300 new full- and part-time jobs.

New workers will be needed as soon as December to help prepare the store for its grand opening, store manager Diana Reyes said.

Eligible full- and part-time workers can get benefits including health care, matching 401(k) contributions of up to six percent of pay, discounts, company-paid life insurance and a quarterly cash bonus based on store performance.

Walmart says 10,000 California workers were promoted from part-time to full-time last year.
