Walmart got its start in Arkansas in 1962. Since then, though our company has expanded across borders and overseas, the U.S. remains the heart of our business where we continue to test new ideas, learn from our customers and improve our ability to help people save money and live better.
Today, Walmart employs more than 1.3 million U.S. associates at more than 4,600 stores and clubs nationwide. Every year, we promote about 170,000 people globally to jobs with more responsibility and higher pay. In the U.S., the average, full-time hourly wage is $12.78.
