We believe in the abilities of our military, and we’re actively recruiting them to the Walmart team
Hiring a veteran can be one of the best decisions a company can make. They're quick learners, and they're team players. They are leaders with discipline, training and a passion for service. We’re actively recruiting veterans, transitioning military, service members and their families to bring these attributes to Walmart, and help us build a better business.
Walmart's "Welcome Home" commitment to hire 100,000 veterans
Beginning Memorial Day 2013, Walmart will offer a job to any honorably discharged veteran within his or her first 12 months off active duty. We believe Walmart is already the largest private employer of veterans -- and we want to hire more.
We project that we'll hire more than 100,000 veterans over the next five years. Most of these jobs will be in our stores and clubs, and some will be in our distribution centers and Home Office. They will look different for different people, and of course we'll hold veterans to the same basic hiring criteria as everyone else. And we'll do our very best to place veterans where they want to be. Learn more at walmartcareerswithamission.com.
Military Family Promise
Our Military Family Promise guarantees a job at a nearby store or club for all military personnel, and military spouses, employed at Walmart and Sam's Club who move to a different part of the country because they or their spouse have been transferred by the United States military. The promise also ensures associates called away to active duty will be paid any difference in their salary if the associate is earning less money during their assignment.
"Hiring Our Heroes" job fairs
Walmart is a national sponsor of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's "Hiring Our Heroes" job fairs. Our support will help the Chamber put on hundreds of job fairs across the country this year where Walmart, Sam's Club and other employers will have the opportunity to recruit veterans. Over the last year, tens of thousands of veterans have been connected to job opportunities through more than 100 fairs. For a full list of upcoming events, visit uschamber.com.
