One of the most rewarding milestones for kids and parents alike is the day their child starts a new job. If you’re seeking a first job or helping someone else find employment, Walmart can be a good place to look!
What Age Does Walmart Hire?
When you or your child is looking for a first job you can’t go wrong with a long-standing, reliable company like Walmart. Luckily for younger job-seekers, Walmart will hire people as young as 16 years old.
The company does have select options that require you to be 18 years old, but for most hourly, in-store jobs 16 is old enough.
To work at the Walmart affiliate club store Sam’s Club you must be 18 years old.
