What Are Some Walmart Careers?

In addition to jobs at the company's retail stores, Walmart offers careers in transportation, logistics, technology and health care. The company also hires for positions at the corporate level.

Walmart refers to their hourly workers at retail stores as associates. Duties generally include stocking shelves, cleaning and operating a cash register. Associates can move on to management roles at both Walmart and Sam's Club stores. Walmart also hires pharmacists and pharmacy technicians for its stores and partners with optometrists who can run their own practice at Walmart locations.

Walmart also transports its goods through its own private truck network, for which it hires drivers. Logistics jobs are available at regional distribution centers.

The company has a wide variety of corporate positions available. Accounting, asset protection, engineering, financial services and supply chain management are some of the areas in which the company hires regularly.

Walmart also operates a number of leadership programs through which individuals can move into management roles. Some programs are open to applicants who have not previously worked for the company. Both Walmart and Sam's Club each operate a manager training program open to those with some college or previous retail experience. Leadership programs are also available in accounting, finance, IT and merchandising.
