WM prides itself on having a down-home, personal, and family-oriented approach in how they treat their customers and employees, making it easier for someone looking for a Walmart job to take a more conventional approach when filling out an application.
May I suggest you consider visiting the Wal Mart of your choice and approaching the Human Resources section, and introduce yourself while asking to fill out an application for employment.
This approach is much more effective for several reasons;
1. You are visiting and inquiring about a position at the store of your choice, and it just may be that they're looking to fill positions right away due to people quitting or being fired.
2. People who have a say-so in the hiring process would much rather see a prospective employee in person, so they're not looking at just a computer screen with information on it. Human beings love familiarity. They would much rather hire someone or at least put someone through the hiring process when they're familiar with that person, instead of taking more of a risk with someone they've never seen or spoken to.
3. This approach is extremely effective if you already know someone who works at the Walmart you want to work for, because that person can easily introduce you to management and vouch for you as a potential employee. Make sure the person introducing you is regarded as a good employee before taking this route!
Once you've made contact in person, then you will be instructed to fill out a Walmart online job application either at the store's kiosk (which I recommend) or at home on your computer.
The advantage here is; they've already met you as a person. If they like what they saw they will contact you, but probably only after you follow up within the following two weeks after you submit the application .
Don't make the mistake of sitting by your phone and waiting for a call. There are very few people in charge of hiring who will follow through and contact potential employees. You must follow up yourself, and I recommend you call them within two weeks after your first visit.
The whole idea is to have them keep you fresh in their minds so that when it's time to pick out new employees, you'll be one of the first on the list.
Also, when people submit Walmart applications, just like any other company, there are flaws in the system; this is because it's run by humans! That is why you need to re-contact and lobby for yourself.
Which brings us to the next obvious question.
What if calling them and following up over the phone doesn't work? Well, I say, that's the perfect opportunity to show them once again what you have to offer in the form of your persistence and desire to work for them.
How often should you keep trying to call and visit in person? There's a fine line between being persistent and being a nuisance, and only you can be the judge of that. Go by their response! Ask yourself, "Do they sincerely seem interested in me?" If you believe they are, then it's worth continuing your efforts to get that Walmart job!
