Walmart is number one on the Fortune 500 list with annual revenues over $500 million. This online and retail giant is still ahead of number two on the list, Amazon. Walmart operates over 4,000 stores throughout the United States, and that’s not including its Sam’s Club centers. Walmart is another giant that is always looking for more associates. This may be due to high turnover, or simply the sheer volume of work to be done at Sam’s Clubs, Walmart Supercenters, Walmart distribution centers, and Walmart Neighborhood Markets. Walmart is known for supporting returning vets, and offering great benefits such as tuition reimbursement and 401K matching contributions after a certain length of employment.
Target is number 38 on the Fortune 500 list of companies. With just over 1800 stores operating in the U.S., it’s not the largest operation, but it is a place where people can always find a job. Target seems to always be hiring, especially at its distribution centers, which are dotted throughout rural areas of the country. Target is also one of the nation’s largest food retailers, which is surprising since it began as a simple merchandise retail company years ago.
