What started small, with a single discount store and the simple idea of selling more for less, has grown over the last 50 years into the largest retailer in the world. Each week, nearly 265 million customers and members visit our more than 11,200 stores under 55 banners in 27 countries and eCommerce websites in 10 countries. With fiscal year 2018 revenue of $500.3 billion, Walmart employs over 2.2 million associates worldwide. Walmart continues to be a leader in sustainability, corporate philanthropy and employment opportunity. It’s all part of our unwavering commitment to creating opportunities and bringing value to customers and communities around the world.
Did you know?
Around the world, over 2.2 million people work for Walmart. In the U.S., where about 90% of the population lives within 10 miles of a Walmart store or Sam’s Club, we’re a source for advancement, providing a variety of opportunities for people of every background. Case in point: 75% of our store management teams started as hourly associates, and last year, we promoted more than 230,000 people to jobs with greater responsibility and higher pay.
At Walmart, we’re committed to using our size and scale for good. Not just for our customers, or even our associates, suppliers, and their families, but also for the people in our communities and around the world that we will never meet. We’re proud to say that the work we do makes a real difference on the real issues that matter to all of us, and drives meaningful change in a way that no other company can.
