Walmart is rolling out a streamlined program to place recent college graduates into store manager roles that pay out more than $200,000 a year – the latest bid by a top retailer to lure talented workers in an ultra-competitive labor market.

Dubbed the “College2Career program,” the pilot initiative is a fast-track training program for recent college graduates and individuals within 12 months of their graduation date, the company said.
