If you just got laid off from your job, you have our sympathies. Millions of workers are expected to get a pink slip as American businesses shut down to try to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.

However, there is a silver lining to this story. At least five large companies are each now hiring to fill anywhere from 10,000 to 150,000 positions.

Here’s where to look if you suddenly need a job.

Walmart: Hiring 150,000 workers

Walmart has been one of the major beneficiaries as Americans have panicked and ransacked store shelves to stock up on toilet paper, canned goods and more.

From now to the end of May, Walmart will hire 150,000 new associates. The positions will be available in stores, distribution centers and fulfillment centers.

Although the jobs will be temporary, Walmart says many will become permanent over time.

In addition, the company plans to reward its frazzled staff with bonuses of $300 for full-time hourly associates and $150 for part-time hourly associates.

Go to the Walmart website to apply for one of the new jobs.

Amazon: Hiring 100,000 workers

Amazon has been another beneficiary of the rush to stock up on goods. And since it is an online retailer, it should only get busier as people stay away from brick-and-mortar stores.

To that end, Amazon is hiring to fill 100,000 new full- and part-time positions across the U.S. The jobs are available in Amazon fulfillment centers and the delivery network.

In addition, the company will pay U.S. employees an additional $2 an hour for all hours worked through April.

Go to Amazon.com to apply.

Dollar Tree and Family Dollar: Hiring 25,000 workers

These two discount store chains, which are both owned by Dollar Tree Inc., also stock many essential products that are in higher demand right now.

To help get those products to the people who need them, the chains are hiring 25,000 full- and part-time associates for stores and distribution centers across the U.S.

Visit Dollar Tree’s website or Family Dollar’s site to apply.

Kroger: Hiring 10,000 workers

Kroger also is experiencing increased demand tied to the coronavirus crisis. Not only has the company hired 2,000 workers in the past week or so, but it has an additional 10,000 positions to fill, according to a CNBC report.

The largest grocery store chain in the country says it has jobs available in plants, warehouses and stores. Go to the Kroger website to apply.

Domino’s: Hiring 10,000 workers

When you’re stuck inside, ordering pizza is a natural move. At least, Domino’s hopes so.

To that end, the company expects to fill 10,000 full-time and part-time positions. Store positions include delivery drivers, pizza makers, customer service representatives, managers and assistant managers.

Domino’s U.S supply chain centers are also hiring Class A CDL drivers.

Go to the Domino’s website to apply.
