First Walmart job: Sam’s Club associate, carts
How Walmart is a #RetailMaverick: We are not afraid to invest in the future. It takes courage; you have to be nimble and unafraid of change. Some decisions haven’t worked, but we don’t dwell on the failures. We learn and move on. I love that we’re 50+ years old, but we think like a startup.
How to find your career: Some people may be intimidated by the size of our company, but I view it as a positive. Don’t just look at Walmart as one thing; there are lots of different areas to work in. You have the ability to grow in our business. If you think about key leaders in our company, we have a great mix: Some are new hires and the majority started as hourly associates.
