Walmart announced today the hiring of nearly 6,000 military spouses since launching the Military Spouse Career Connection (MSCC) on Veterans Day 2018.
The MSCC gives hiring preference to military spouses who seek employment with Walmart or Sam’s Club.
The company’s Military Family Promise, now in its ninth year, also guarantees a job at a nearby store or club for all military personnel and military spouses employed by the company who move to a different part of the country as part of their military service.
The Walmart Foundation awarded a $1 million grant to Hire Heroes USA to support the expansion of its employment programs and improve data collection and reporting.
