"We would love to do like an interview session here," she told Nashville's News 2. "They could bring in their managers and actually have veterans right here that they can interview on the spot."
One vet who said she would like to interview with Walmart is Barbara Spivey. She said she spent time in Iraq while serving in the Army from 2001 to 2004.
Spivey said she is already in training for retail at the Operation Stand Down store at 12th and Edgehill.
"It's been kind of up and down since I got back," she told Nashville's News 2.
Barbara said she thinks it will be Walmart who may get the best part of the deal because vets like her "are very detailed oriented, team members. We know what that is all about and we follow directions very well."
Most of the jobs will be in Walmart stores or its Sam's Club locations. Some will be in the company's distribution centers.
Walmart said they believe the retailer is already the largest private employer of veterans in the country.
