If you are looking for a job, then get ready. The Wal-Mart job application is going to be handed out at an incredible pace by the end of this year and the beginning of the next. The Wal-Mart hiring centers have announced that the company plans on hiring some 25,000 employees for the next fiscal year.
The company has shown steady increase in sales through this rough economy, and even though the guru's predict a harsh years end, I think that there will be plenty of place where you may have a shot at a job. Having a shot at a Wal-Mart career sounds pretty good to me. I can tell you that currently I have two family members that are employed by the giant superstore, and they love it. Not to mention they love the fact that at least they have a steady income flow.
There are too many false hopes out there for people to let themselves get caught in a rut. If this is a job that you want then go out there and get one. For the teenagers that might be interested in applying for a part-time or Summer job. I can tell you this, if you have not yet let out of school for the Summer, then go back and ask for a letter of recommendation from your teachers. Have them point out some of your leadership skills in that letter. Things like being a team player, and always helping to clean up, or a leader in the classroom, are some values that would be a nice compliment to your Wal-Mart application package. I hope that you all have a safe and prosperous Summer. Good luck in your job hunt.
