Many high school grads are attending college and working part-time to pay for tuition and miscellaneous expenses, which, as most of you know, are plenty when it comes to attending any college.
By contrast, many others have totally postponed their college education in hopes of entering the business world, and there's a place for them in the form of an entry-level Walmart job as well.
Some people with just a GED go on to have stellar Walmart careers because they have the drive and persistence to move up the ladder quickly.
The application process at WM is fairly simple, but you need to prepare yourself and have some important information handy when you go online to make it easier such as your prior work history including the name, address, and the name of a supervisor who worked there with you as well as your reason for leaving, at least three references (be ready to provide name, their job titles, address, and a telephone number), a list of all schools attended and the graduation dates, information on whether or not you've been convicted of a criminal offense.
Teens should take notice of the last entry describing their prior criminal history! In most every state in the US, once you've been convicted of a crime, whether a misdemeanor or felony, it's extremely difficult to get hired anywhere! Teens mistakenly believe their criminal history starts fresh and everything on their record can be erased once they turn 18; this is simply not true.
Teens are notorious for getting arrested at a very young age and later finding out when they've matured they have trouble getting hired because of their unfortunate past; don't let this happen to you! Your criminal history or lack thereof, will follow you throughout your life, so protect it!
I'm not saying Walmart will not consider your application if you've got a criminal history, but your best bet is to start planning right now for your future and stay out of trouble with the law so you can fill out a Walmart online job application and get hired quickly when the time is right for you!
