Retailers AWOL on vet list

No company hired more veterans last year than Walmart, but that distinction was only enough to earn the company the 23rd spot on Military Times annual ranking of the best companies for veterans.
To compile the rankings, Military Times said it asked companies to complete a 90 question survey that addressed topics such as recruitment of people connected to the military, policies related to veterans, reservists and their families and the organization’s culture. As of Memorial Day, Walmart had hired 40,000 veterans since making a commitment in early 2013 that it would hire more than 100,000 veterans by 2018.
At total of 59 companies were included in the ranking, but only three other retailers made the cut. Safeway came in at number 20 while the Army and Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES) was ranked 31 and The Home Depot was ranked 45.
