Fort Oglethorpe mayor Ronnie Cobb says Costco will be taking online applications starting around mid-May and will begin hiring in June.

The store is expected to open in September. It is expected to offer between 125 and 150 jobs, with about half the jobs being full-time.

On average, the jobs will pay between $11 and $21 an hour for cashier positions, and most employees will be eligible for benefits within the first year of employment.
