So you’re a teenager looking to get a part time job at Walmart but are not sure if they would entertain the thought of hiring a teen. They most certainly do have jobs for teens at Walmart.
Walmart employs people of all ages and doesn’t discriminate at all when it comes to a new hire. They do observe the laws of the city, county, state and federal government so if hiring you would cause a labor law to be broken they will back off.
One of the reasons Walmart likes to hire teens is because of the energy and enthusiasm a teen may bring to the table. Unlike some older folks, teens are game on when it comes to energy most of the time and according to the FDA, teens consume more energy drinks like Red Bull and such than older folks. Between the youth and the caffeine you could have one dynamic package on your hands.
Another benefit to having a teen on your team is that they are generally easier to train. Training is a huge expense to a major retailer and the less they spend to train a teen, the more profit they make. Major retailers like Walmart, Bed Bath & Beyond, Marshalls, Tuesday Morning and other big players generally have a set format for training and expect to spend a certain amount of time in the process. The benefit of a teen is they retain the training better and thus are better equipped to work their shifts.
So if you are a teen concerned that you are not qualified, get an online job application for Walmart, fill it out and see where it takes you.
