Posted May 01, 2018 07:53:51 A Walmart employee who has been with the company for over a decade is giving her own spin on the software-specific jobs offered by the retailer.
The company’s Computer Job Center has a “top-secret” status that means employees have to submit a resume and cover letter that includes their names, ages, social security numbers, and a sample of their resume or cover letter, according to the Wal-Mart blog.
The program, which is currently available to only certain employees, also requires that applicants demonstrate that they are able to solve “the toughest computer problems.”
However, a Wal-mart spokesperson said that the company has not been able to verify the authenticity of the resume or letter.
“We do not use or endorse any software to solve your problem, so it’s a great tool to use,” the spokesperson said in an email to ABC News.
The employee, who asked to be identified only as Lisa, said she has taken advantage of the program for nearly three years to get a job with the retailer and other retail giants.
“I think the only time I’ve had a real job, I was working for Walmart.
I have been in the software department for years and it’s just been great,” Lisa said.
“It’s fun, it’s easy, and it makes you feel like you’re working for a real company.
It’s a little bit different from the other companies.
It makes you have a little more confidence and trust, so I can make decisions based on what’s right for my team.”
Lisa said that she worked with a Walmart software engineer for almost a year and “was kind of a little skeptical” of the software before she found it to be “a lot of fun.”
“Theres definitely a big difference between being a customer service representative, which I feel like is pretty much the same thing, and being a software engineer,” Lisa told ABC News, adding that she thought she was “kind of a f***ing moron” for not working more closely with her team.
She also said she had not taken advantage at all of the other programs offered by other retail firms.
“The biggest thing is just the sense of accomplishment,” she said.
Lisa said she is excited to have had a job at the company and that she was looking forward to the opportunity to help make the company a “great place to work.”
The employee who found out she had the software experience, however, said that it wasn’t enough to get her job.
“You can’t get it for free,” the employee said.
The job center has “secret” access to the company’s database, which allows employees to take advantage of other programs that are available.
The person, who requested anonymity to speak freely, said it would be nice if Wal-Marts Computer Job Centers were available at other retail locations, such as Walmart, Target, and Target Express.
“There are tons of people that work for Walmart who would love to get the chance to work for the company.
The thing that I find most frustrating is they don’t even offer you a spot to apply for the positions, they just send you a code,” the person said.
