On the heels of our ecommerce acquisitions and with the expanding footprint of our US business, we are in the midst of an exciting Global People Transformation effort with the aim of creating a work environment that Walmart can be proud of.

Following the $2.7 billion investment in our people announced in February 2016, Walmart has been undergoing an exciting and dynamic transformation in which our associates and customers are at the center of everything we do.

We are looking for MBA interns to come on board and bring their strategic and analytical minds to help us work through value-add projects. Your manager will work with you to find the best fit project to tackle during this 10-week internship based on the business need, your interests, and the skills you desire to learn over the course of the summer. Depending on the project, interns will have an opportunity to work cross-functionally and with HR departments across the enterprise. Most projects will also entail working with our HR analytics team to help inform your recommendations.
