Fast Start Program
New Hire On-Boarding
You need your new hires to hit the ground running. The stakes are high and things move quickly, so it's important to provide the tools and information they need to succeed.
But most companies can't afford to pull their most experienced staff away to train new hires on the basics of the business.
Wouldn't it be great if you could schedule some time for your new hires to meet real Walmart supplier community insiders, so they'd understand the culture and systems fully from the start?
For Job Seekers
Landing a job with Walmart or with one of their top supplier teams can be challenging if you're just out of college or contemplating a career change. The best teams want a candidate with experience, and, ironically enough, it’s nearly impossible to gain meaningful experience without that first job.
Wouldn't it be great if you could get that essential inside knowledge and background about Walmart culture and systems without the experience that -- let's face it -- you just don't have yet?
With these challenges in mind, 8th & Walton has collaborated with some of the brightest minds in Walmart’s supplier community to introduce Fast Start, a program with all you need to get on track -- plus some additional benefits for the long term.
* Fast Start graduation requires successful completion of all courses
