About the company

Sam Walton started a single mom-and-pop shop 50 years ago, and transformed it into the world’s biggest retailer. Walmart offers opportunities for undergraduate students, graduate students, and new grads who will help us define the way forward by working on projects with real-world stakes.

What early talent is saying

"This was a robust internship experience filled with networking events, a speaker series from the C-Suite, structured mentorship, and a major capstone project. I felt like my work actually mattered and that I was receiving valuable work experience in turn."
