According to Gisel Ruiz, executive vice president, chief operating officer, Walmart U.S., "The holidays are a special time of year for many Americans. For some it's about being with loved ones; for others it's about giving their family a Christmas to remember.  

"Our associates have always been the key to Walmart's success, and that's especially true during the holidays. We know our associates are going to deliver for our customers, so we are going to deliver for our associates. In addition to the traditional hiring of seasonal help, we are expanding opportunities for the people that already work for us."
