You may have left the military, but the military never leaves you.
You left active duty to pursue your education, but we know the experiences and all you learned there have left an indelible impression, and will serve you well no matter where you go in your life and career. At Walmart, we understand, greatly appreciate and actively seek out veterans for our workforce. The values that led you to serve in first place, drive you in your studies, and continually push you towards a brighter future are our values too.
A familiar culture in a civilian workplace
Our mission is to help millions of Americans live better every day, and the military and veterans are a big part of that. We are one of the largest employers of military families in the nation, and in one year alone, we welcomed over 100,000 new veterans to our workforce through our Veterans Welcome Home Commitment.
Work that makes a difference
Starting your career after college with Walmart means making an impact from day one. We rely on bright and dynamic people who can bring game-changing ideas to the table and new solutions to complex problems – because after the military, there is no bigger stage to make an impact. Our teams are made up of 2.2 million global associates and serve over 230 million customers every week.
Here, you’ll work directly with leaders in your field – which means quickly developing competitive skills, a global network, and industry insight, while leveraging career experiences and resources to develop meaningful industry-wide solutions. And, you’ll be given the freedom and responsibility to make real decisions with real impact.

Walmart is a proud corporate sponsor of the Student Veterans of America
2014 Leadership Institute
Every year, SVA hosts a multi-day event called the Leadership Institute where a select group of emerging chapter leaders get together for intensive, in-residence chapter leadership training. We are pleased to announce that the 2014 SVA Leadership Institute will take place at the Walmart Corporate Headquarters in Bentonville, Arkansas from June 26th to 29th.
