The Walmart Distribution Center in Sanger, TX, became home to the first-of-its-kind Supply Chain Academy, created specifically to train our supply chain associates and provide them with a clear path to advancement. We celebrated the 1st graduating class of this new Academy in September!
The Supply Chain Academy in Sanger is patterned after the 200 Academies that train all store associates around the U.S. All Academies follow our belief that growing and succeeding as associates and as a company in today’s changing world requires new skills and the ability to meet the needs of customers who have more shopping choices than ever before.
“Within the Walmart Supply Chain, we are focused on creating a great place to work where our more than 100,000 associates can be empowered to solve problems for our business,” said Greg Smith, EVP of Walmart U.S. Supply Chain. “This first Supply Chain Academy is a pivotal step on that journey. North-central Texas customers will see the impact of the training and hard work of these graduates on the shelves of the more than 140 Walmart stores and Sam’s Clubs this distribution center serves.”
