This may NOT be the case here in North Dakota---with the economy booming, Wal-Mart is always looking to add additional employees, but in other parts of the country--like in Washington D.C., it's harder to get an entry level job at Wal-Mart than it is to get accepted into one of the top Ivy-League schools----Harvard!   It's true!!

Turns out that ONLY around 9 percent of all applicants get accepted at Harvard. But last year, when Walmart opened a store in Washington, D.C., there were over 23,000 applications for 600 jobs. That's an acceptance rate of only 2.6 percent.  Isn't that shocking?  Easier to get into Harvard then get a job at a Washington, D.C. Wal-Mart.  Think about this-----the next time you’re shopping at your neighborhood Walmart store, just remember how special the employees helping you are. They could be – quite literally – the best of the best. (WashingtonPost)
