Many professionals earning fairly high salaries have had to swallow their pride and they've have had to start at the bottom once again just to make sure their families are fed and clothed. By the same token, many of these overqualified workers have risen through the ranks and advanced to much higher-paying jobs pretty quickly, and many have actually found a permanent home with a career at Walmart.
College grads are swarming Walmart job openings with much persistence, in hopes of landing their very first job in a market where jobs are scarce. However, even they are having a tough time!
Walmart has to pick and choose the best candidates not only for their credentials, schooling, and employment history, but for the welfare of the department store; they're looking for great people who are looking to stay with them over the long haul! What this means is a person with a GED or high school diploma has just as much of a chance to get hired at Wal Mart as a person with a four year degree.
The time is perfect right now to get the ball rolling, and for those who are still collecting unemployment, consider a Walmart online job application before the checks stop arriving!
