Fifty years ago, Sam Walton started a single mom-and-pop shop and transformed it into the world’s biggest retailer. Since those founding days, one thing has remained consistent: our commitment to helping our customers save money so they can live better. Today, we’re reinventing the shopping experience and our associates are at the heart of it.

Working at Walmart

A job at Walmart means an opportunity to build a career. More than 75% of our Walmart U.S. store operations management team members started as hourly employees, and in FY2021, we promoted more than 300,000 U.S. associates to jobs of greater responsibility and higher pay. The average hourly wage for full- and part-time U.S. hourly associates at the end of FY2021 was more than $15.00 per hour. In 2020, we hired more than 500,000 new associates globally, many of which were displaced from jobs due to the impacts of COVID-19. Learn more about the opportunities and benefits we offer.
