Associate potential: A defining difference
At Walmart, there’s all kinds of potential for dynamic career progression – especially for an associate with the desire and will to explore new opportunities through our organization.
What sets us apart from other retailers is the sheer number and variety of career possibilities. For example, an associate looking for a new career path, can start their search right here by scanning opportunities in their pick of one of our four main business divisions. Or they can make the switch to an entirely new job description and once they develop the expertise, use it as a stepping-stone to yet another kind of opportunity.
Exploring all the options
Walmart really encourages associates to think out of the box in terms of where their career can take them. We’ve evolved a terrific process to help them test out new areas and preview the potential of a different position through developmental roles or job shadowing. It provides an opportunity to get a genuine feel for new territories and job descriptions without having to make any long-term commitments.
Far more than retail opportunities
Walmart Canada employs all kinds of career professionals that you’d never expect to find in the retail industry. We’re home to an astounding variety of professions and trades involved in the many facets of our business – everything from architects, lawyers, bankers and accountants to pilots, graphic designers, operators, store managers and e-commerce specialists. Whether associates come to us from established careers or from within the company itself, we work equally hard to create quality opportunities that enable them to diversify and grow.
