Handling the application process

August 5, 2020

I applied through LinkedIn, so it was a standard process. Obviously, it helps if you have a reference internally, especially for the smaller teams.

August 5, 2020

Do your research, understand the culture and how Walmart fits into the industry. It’s so large, so you have to understand the context of your team and how everything plays together. You should show that you're a part of Walmart in totality and not just a certain segment.

Navigating the company culture

August 5, 2020

It’s a pretty rigorous onboarding process. You have 3 months to onboard. I wouldn't rush into knowing everything, I’d take that time to onboard and not take it for granted because once that’s up, you are expected to perform at a certain level.

Manager, Vendor Relations & Network Strategy

San Bruno, CA

tenure:

Less than 1 year

Company culture

I can only speak to the San Bruno, .com perspective but I think in terms of authenticity, I go to work and do my work. I’m able to work with a team and do the things that I like to do in a workplace.

Company culture

The culture is a pretty standard, Silicon Valley vibe. It’s a product heavy, engineering focus, so being on the business side creates opportunity to be aggressive and show your value. I think it's a good place to work on the thing that you want to do and work for one of the most successful brands in the world.

Diversity programs

The ones that I participate in are genuine because the participants are Black people. We do what we want to do and it’s more of an internal community. They've impacted my experience positively. I’ve been able to make a lot of connections outside of my group, which has been super helpful. Being able to go to a place with genuine connection is really helpful. I’ve also gotten a lot of mentors out of that experience.

Relationships with manager(s)

My manager supported me through onboarding in terms of getting me prepared for the role. He’s also been helpful in supporting my priorities as it related to outside interests.

Training and career development

It depends on the team. I work on a small team, so I have access to my senior VP, but it depends on your place in the organization. It’s really on you to put the moves in place in terms of upward mobility or furthering your career
