Walmart also said that it's offering jobs to qualified veterans who have been honorably discharged within the last 12 months. 

According to a statement from the company, Walmart offers, among other benefits, matching 401(k) contributions, health care coverage to full- and part-time associates who qualify and company paid life insurance.
