Walmart Touts Career Ops

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. has begun its holiday season with a special focus on greater career opportunities for associates. The Bentonville, Ark.-based mega-retailer anticipates that in 2013, it will promote more than 160,000 associates to positions with higher pay and more responsibility, including 25,000 promotions during its fourth quarter alone.

As part of this initiative, top executives are making personal appearances at stores to congratulate promoted associates and thank them for their service. Executives visiting stores include Bill Simon, Walmart U.S. president and CEO; Gisel Ruiz, Walmart U.S. COO; Michael Bender, president of Walmart West; Joaquin Gonzalez, president of Walmart East; and Mike Moore, president of Walmart Central.

“Our success from day one is a direct result of our associates and the hard work they do in taking care of our customers,” said Simon. “Like most Americans, our associates want good jobs and access to a better life. Whether you are a cashier in Charlotte, or a stocker in Dallas or an assistant manager in Los Angeles, Walmart wants to see you succeed.”
