Will Walmart Hire Me With A Felony Conviction?

Based on our research and experience, yes Walmart has previously hired individuals with felony convictions.

It is important to understand that every company considers many factors, not just a criminal background check, when it comes to deciding who to hire. These factors may include your experience, your skills, the type of conviction(s) you have, what you were convicted for, the number of convictions, the time since your release, and, how you have worked to better yourself since your conviction or what you have done since your release.

When applying for jobs at Walmart, you should emphasis the steps you have taken to change your life. Did you work while you were incarcerated? Are you currently working? What new skills have you learned recently? How can your skill set and experience help Walmart.

About Walmart

Have you ever thought about what it takes to run the world’s largest company? Innovative business ideas, strong product lines and the lowest prices are just the start at Walmart. But our best assets are our associates. It takes millions of people (really! 2.2 million strong) to keep us moving forward each day. We’re looking for the best and the brightest to help us continue Sam Walton’s tradition of taking care of our customers. It’s the chance for real impact – from the simple things we all do every day, to changes that touch the 245 million people who visit us in stores and online each week. With 11,000 retail locations and a booming eCommerce business, that’s a scale you won’t find anywhere else. And each day you’ll do it alongside a family of team members. That's why our associates love working here. They say it's about the people, it's about the innovation and it's about changing the world for the better.
