Good Jobs Lead Image

There are a lot of misconceptions about Walmart, particularly about the quality of our jobs and the people who work here. In my nearly 8 years with the company, I’ve spoken with countless associates who love to come to work every day and who have been promoted to leadership positions.

From associates who have overcome serious illness through the benefits Walmart offers to associates who have achieved more than they ever dreamed they were capable of, stories of advancement are the norm here.

Check out the graphic below to get the facts – the real facts. Because it’s true that Walmart offers good jobs with the opportunity to go as far as your hard work will take you.  I see it happen every day.

Why is it mandatory for employees to work weekends? I was a nurse for 20 yrs and worked every shift you can name. I can not work weekends as a family commitment that I have agreed to do can not be changed. Im 71 and need light work so to speak and be able to sit down at times. I had a job already to go with the photo section, but they could not hire me because I couldn't work the weekends.

Why is it that Walmart in Rapid City SD would pull their garden seeds when summer is not even here yet and gardens are still being planted? This is kind of stupid and assine.

Hi Linda, I would say in retail you have to be available when the customers want to shop. That's the weekend, It's just that way in retail I think,
