The business of better:
Culture is the foundation of everything we do at Walmart. We define culture as our values in action. It’s how we deliver superior customer service, create a great front-line work environment and improve performance in order to achieve our common purpose of saving people money so they can live better.
There’s a path for everyone at Walmart – whether that’s exploring careers in our stores and clubs, pursuing further education or leading others.
We operate more than 10,500 stores in 24 countries, and we employ over 2.3 million associates worldwide. Each of those people come to work at Walmart for their own reasons – to earn some money with a summer job, earn a living for their family or learn something new that can shape their career for years to come.
Our goal is to give associates tools they need to become the best versions of themselves, on and off the clock while preparing them for their journey ahead.
Access to Opportunity
The world of retail is a great way for people to build valuable skills and grow a meaningful career. Now the second-largest industry by employment behind health care, retail remains a building block of the American experience. And at Walmart, almost anyone can discover a path to a great career.
For many job seekers, the path to employment is often littered with obstacles. Lack of prior experience, a criminal record, or lack of formal education all prevent some from being considered by employers.
We’re proud of our low barriers to job opportunities and the pathways we’ve created to turn jobs into careers.
In 2020, we hired more than 500,000 new associates globally, many of whom were displaced from jobs due to the impacts of COVID-19.
Approximately 64% of our roles are full-time in the U.S., ahead of the industry average (excludes Home Office associates), and approximately two-thirds of our U.S. hourly associates will be full-time by the end of January 2022.
75% of our U.S. salaried store, club and supply chain management began as hourly associates.
Walmart store managers earn an average of more than $180,000 a year.
Opportunities for Military Veterans and Students
We welcome people of all backgrounds and experience levels to join our family, and we’re committed to making the transition into employment as seamless as possible for our associates.
Each year, we invite undergraduates, graduate and MBA students and new grads to participate in internship and development programs across the company. These positions are fully paid and offer exciting opportunities to innovate, solve important problems and network with executives and industry leaders. Many of our interns are extended full-time job offers after the end of their internship.
