At Walmart, we are grateful for the sacrifice our nation’s veterans, military men and women, and their families have made in service to our country. It is not only our duty, but our honor to support our men and women in uniform not only when they are on the battlefield, but also when they return home and transition to civilian life. Through Walmart and the Walmart Foundation, we are committed to helping these men and women as they face this important period through job opportunities, as well as support for programs that provide the job training, transition support and education they may need. In May 2015, Walmart announced the next step in its Veterans Welcome Home Commitment by guaranteeing a job offer to any eligible U.S. veteran honorably discharged from active duty since the commitment’s original launch on Memorial Day 2013.  We are committed to hiring 250,000 veterans by the end of 2020, and, as of May 2016, Walmart has hired over 130,000 new veteran associates and  promoted over 15,000 of them.  Additional information can be found by visiting http://walmartcareerswithamission.com

cdn.corporate.walmart“We have a generation of veterans who have built a legacy of incredible service and sacrifice to our nation. We have hired veterans at every career stage and in every part of our company, from stores and distribution centers to the home office and Walmart.com. Veterans bring invaluable skills including leadership, commitment and hard work, which make our workforce even stronger. In addition to the good jobs we offer, the Walmart Foundation continues to reinforce its support for transitioning military members by supporting innovative public/private community-based initiatives that address challenges veterans may face when returning to the civilian workforce, while also helping many veteran owned small businesses gain access to capital and borrower education needed to help their businesses thrive.”
