"It seems there are always openings, says Gerald P., a senior citizen living and working as a WM associate in Orlando, FL, "because someone is always quitting and getting another job elsewhere, or because these youngsters don't know or want to work good and hard." Gerald P. says he's referring to the type of work involved as an entry-level associate as being a little demanding, especially during the holidays. Gerald P. adds, "Look at me, I'm 68, and I can run circles around most of these guys!
For a senior citizen, a Walmart job can not only help their finances but allow them a little exercise too, and , as with any job for seniors, it's always wise to check with a physician before even considering a job at Walmart.
Gerald continues, "At my age any exercise I can get is welcome and hey, if I can make a little extra money for me and the Mrs. on the side, me and her are all for it."
Walmart has always encouraged seniors to apply and they've found older workers to be just as efficient as other workers in younger age groups.
Without a doubt, I know why this is so. Our new generation of children live in a world where virtually everything is at their fingertips; even a Walmart application can easily be filled online instead of the old-school method of visiting a place of business, introducing yourself, and applying.
"I got this job a year ago but I walked into the store and got hired the old-fashioned way," adds Gerald P. Maybe he knows something a lot of Walmart applicants don't.
