Apply to be an intern through the Wal-Mart corporate office
All interns go through the Wal-Mart Management Training Program, and are often highly sought-after to be a manager after completion of an internship.
Acquire a bachelor's degree and other management experience
As with most positions, Wal-Mart looks for highly-qualified individuals to be managers. Degrees and previous experience help applicants' names stand out. Furthermore, Wal-Mart has a history of hiring individuals with Junior Military Officer experience, as they have been highly trained.
Be an outstanding worker at a Wal-Mart location
If a worker started as a low ranking worker and worked hard to climb the corporate ladder, Wal-Mart may see potential in him or her and accept them to be trained as a manager, as noted by The New York Times.
