Walmart Hiring High School Students Offering College Credit

"These courses are more like traditional college courses but are made available for the first time to high school students so that they can understand what does it mean to take a college course, what is the level of rigor, how does it work, etcetera", said Rachel Carlson, CEO and co-founder of Guild.
Walmartannounced Tuesday it was extending its debt-free college benefits to high school students, including free ACT and SAT prep courses and college credit, to attract and keep young talent.
The nation's largest retailer announced it is expanding its Live Better U education program to high school-aged employees. "We see this as a pipeline [of workers] that we can leverage". Walmart previous year raised its hourly starting wage to $11 an hour to keep up with rivals such as Amazon and Costco, which pay at least $15 an hour.
Other companies are also focusing on education benefits to draw workers. "Retail workers tend to be generalists - what a Walmart worker does is similar to what a Macy's worker does - so it's easy for them to move from one employer to another". Bernie Sanders is set to attend Walmart's shareholders meeting later this week, where he's expected to pressure the company to raise wages and is helping propose hourly workers should have a spot on Walmart's board. That figure is projected to drop to 26 percent by 2024. As part of the expansion, Walmart will now offer all of its 1.4 million USA associates the opportunity to earn an associate or bachelor's degree in business, IT or STEM from Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) through the University's partnership with Guild Education, who works with Walmart to administer the program. The retailer, he said, is hoping to "connect high school students with not just a job but with a career, potentially".
Last year, Walmart began offering associate's and bachelor's degrees in business and supply-chain management to its employees for $1 a day.
Walmart is offering to cover tuition for its 1.4 million workers. SNHU will start enrolling Walmart students for its online program in September.
Associates can earn degrees at one of six nonprofit universities, including the University of Florida and Brandman University. The company is working with Denver-based Guild Education that offers a program costing a dollar a day at several non-profit universities.
