Walmart has pledged to hire every recently discharged veteran looking for a job. The nation’s largest retailer says it expects to hire more than 100,000 veterans over the next five years starting on Memorial Day. The hiring pledge will cover veterans within 12 months of honorably leaving active duty. Most of the jobs will be in Walmart stores or its Sam's club locations; some will be in the company's distribution centers.
The plans were to be announced as part of an address by Bill Simon, president and CEO of Wal-Mart's U.S. business, at an annual retail industry convention in New York. "Let's be clear; hiring a veteran can be one of the best decisions any of us can make," Simon plans to say in his address to retailers gathered on the third day of the four-day National Retail Federation convention. "Veterans have a record of performance under pressure. They're quick learners, and they're team players. These are leaders with discipline, training, and a passion for service. There is a seriousness and sense of purpose that the military instills, and we need it today more than ever." (read more here at www.miltary.com)
