Applying for Employment with Walmart

online job forms

If you want to apply for a job at the retail giant, the Walmart employment application form is the best place to start. You can fill it out conveniently at your own home, on your own time, and there's no need to step foot inside the store to ask for an application.

Fill Out a Walmart Job Application

You can find the online version of a Walmart employment application form on the Walmart Careers page within the company's website. From that page, you can choose to apply for a position within a Walmart or Sam's store or with the Logistics division. You can also select Corporate Careers, eCommerce Careers (including working for Walmart.com or SamsClub.com), Pharmacy Careers, or Independent Doctor of Optometry Careers.

Applying for jobs online is easy and a preferred method by many employers.

Store Positions

If you choose to apply for a position in one of your local Walmart or Sam's Club stores, you'll need to devote about thirty minutes to an hour to filling out the form online. If you can't do it all at once, that's no problem; you can save it and go back to it later-for up to sixty days. The application form is available online in English and Spanish. If you have a disability that prohibits you from applying online, you can go to your nearest store and request assistance.

Before you get started, you'll need to set up an account. This will ensure that if for some reason you cannot complete your application in one sitting, you can log back in and finish it later. Once you've set up your account, you will be asked basic questions about yourself that you may feel free not to answer (gender, ethnicity) and to select which type of facility you would prefer (Walmart, Sam's, or Logistics). You'll also be asked which city you would like to work in so that you may be matched with the appropriate store.

You'll then be asked to choose the type of the position you'd be interested in, from professional to hourly. From there, you'll be asked to narrow it down even further, generally by department. You'll be asked for your contact information and availability, plus contact information for two references. Finally, you'll be asked about your education and work experience. Once you've completed those questions, you will need to fill out three sections of questions regarding your qualifications, preferences, and experience.

Corporate Careers

The Corporate section of the website will only work with Internet Explorer and you will have to create a new login. You can search for jobs by location or type; create, post, and edit resumes; and edit your account.

eCommerce Jobs

By choosing the eCommerce option, you can see which areas have jobs available and then narrow it down by category. With this type of job search, you can set up an agent that will email you when a job that meets your criteria becomes available. When you complete your search, you'll see the jobs that have already been posted, when they were posted, and information about the positions. You can fill out a form online or submit your resume by email.

You'll be asked to give your contact information and post or upload your resume if you choose the online form. You will then be asked to complete a form about your contact information, employment history, employment desired, education, training history, references, and optional personal data (ethnicity and gender).

Pharmacy/Optical

You can do a quick job search in this category. If you can't find a job you're interested in right now, you can still set up a job agent so that you can receive job postings in your email when they match your criteria. If you do find a job you'd like to apply for, you simply tell them how you heard about the job and submit your resume. You'll also need to fill out a form that asks questions about your availability, specialty, work history, education, certifications, and more.

Start the Application Process

There is more than one Walmart employment application form depending on the type of job you're interested in applying for and where you would like to work. Set aside up to an hour to complete your application and have your resume file on hand so that you can copy and paste information from the document or upload it.
