Walmart last week announced it has hired more than 10,000 veterans in the state of Florida since introducing its Veterans Welcome Home Commitment in May 2013. During that same timespan, more than 1,300 veterans were promoted to jobs of greater responsibility at the company's various Florida locations. The Walmart commitment guarantees a job offer to any eligible, honorably discharged U.S. veteran. With a goal to hire 250,000 veterans nationwide by the end of 2020, Walmart has already hired more than 170,000 veterans nationwide, and more than 22,000 have been promoted to jobs of greater responsibility.
