Wal-mart Information Session
September 21, 2016to September 21, 2016

 Walmart will be visiting Memorial University this September 21st for an information/networking session to speak to students about their rotational “DARE” program which develops accelerated retail experience. The process would include an info session (generally hosted the last 2 weeks of Sept), followed by 3 rounds of interviews and finally we extend offers end of Oct/early Nov.
There are two streams for this program: a 1-year Home Office rotation through key disciplines (Merchandising, Ecom, Marketing, Supply chain, Logistics/Transportation, Strategy, and Private Label Sourcing/Development to name a few), and a 3-year rotation that has a strong focus on combining operations and merchandising expertise.
We traditionally recruit from BA, Commerce, and MBA programs but are open to learning more about students attending Memorial University taking part in other programs as well.

To be eligible for the program, students must be graduating Dec 2016 or June 2017 – start dates for the “DARE” program would be Aug 2017.
