MANKATO, Minn. (AP) - Walmart has started taking applications for about 400 job openings in Mankato.

The retail giant has started posting a variety of positions on its website for its new distribution center that's expected to open this summer.

The center's general manager, Mark Carlson, tells reports wages start at $16.75 an hour with no experience necessary. Walmart says it will be adding to the job postings each week.
