Types of jobs you can get at Walmart
Walmart has a huge variety of jobs on offer: contrary to the widely held perception that the only jobs available at Walmart are ‘retail floor jobs’. Of course, the retail floor jobs form a huge bulk of what Walmart has to offer, in terms of employment opportunities: it being, after all, a retail corporation. But over and above those, Walmart does have other jobs. Those are in areas like transportation (e.g. for drivers), corporate — like accounting and finance, engineering, the legal department, real estate and store planning… among others. There are even healthcare jobs to be applied for at Walmart, in areas such as pharmacy and optometry. So the opportunities are many and varied.
