At Walmart, we know that when associates have stability in areas like health care, parental leave, paid time off and retirement planning, they’re able to bring their best selves to work. That’s why we’re proud to offer up to 6 weeks of paid parental leave to all salaried and full-time hourly associates who have been at Walmart for at least a year. That increases to up to 16 weeks for birth mothers. For associates adopting a new family member, we provide up to $5,000 to help cover expenses. Learn how we’re supporting associates and their growing families. Learn More
