Since March 2016, Walmart has put more than 150,000 of its store supervisors and department managers through Walmart Academy, one of the largest employer training programs in the country.
According to The New York Times, Walmart has spent $2.7 billion on training and raising wages for 1.2 million of its store workers over the past two years.
