When Sam Walton
opened the first Walmart
discount store in Rogers, Arkansas
, it was probably hard to fathom what the company would become. Today, Walmart is the largest retailer in the world, employing approximately 2.3 million associates across the globe. There are 11,000 locations in more than 27 countries
serving more than 200 million customers every week

Working at Walmart
Part of Walmart’s success is attributed to its dedicated workforce, and its commitment to its employees. Consider this: More than 75% of Walmart’s store management teams worked their way up from jobs as hourly associates. And, more than 300,000 associates have been with Walmart for 10 years or more. Walmart also announced a commitment of $2,7 billion to put toward higher wages and training programs for its workers. That’s in addition to the scholarship programs for associates and dependents, and a very generous benefits package.
In addition to the brick and mortar store employees, Walmart hires a variety of professionals to run its online, eCommerce operations. This includes all sorts of positions such as software engineers and data scientists, as well as people to work in the distribution centers. And, its corporate offices employ managers, marketers, finance and human resource professionals, and more.
Retail locations also have Care Clinics and Pharmacies, so Walmart is always in need of healthcare providers like pharmacists, registered nurses, and physicians to run those divisions as well.
