Global eCommerce Audit Services Finance Intern
The Walmart Global eCommerce Audit Services Internship is a highly visible 10-week program designed to provide experiential learning and development opportunities for undergraduates. All internships are located at the Walmart eCommerce office in San Bruno, California.
As an intern, you will have an opportunity to work on challenging and innovative projects within the finance area that will drive our business forward. Each intern will work on one or multiple strategically relevant projects that impact not only our business, but our customers. You will put classroom theory to the test by working on real business issues, as they relate to finance, accounting and business processes at the world’s largest retailer.
Within Global eCommerce Audit Services, it is expected that you participate in the full life cycle of an audit project. You will be given specific project responsibilities, which range from planning the audit engagement to writing the audit report. Through the audit project, you will develop a thorough understanding of how to evaluate and control risk. You will deliver the results of the audit to senior Audit and Business leadership and help to recommend actions plans to resolve issues.
Throughout your internship, you will receive leadership development, professional mentorship and technical training via cohort-based learning environments. You will also have the opportunity to participate in a variety of professional development offers ranging from brand knowledge to agile training. Through the intern executive speaker series, tech talks and work-team activities you will also be able to gain a greater knowledge of the company as well as the industry. In addition, you will gain valuable insight into all aspects of the Audit department, through direct interaction with current associates, and have an opportunity to see their career paths first-hand.
Finally and most importantly…being an intern at Global eCommerce is fun! Whether you are playing a pickup basketball or ping pong game, going to the San Francisco Giants games, or taking an intern-only catamaran cruise around the San Francisco Bay, there is always something going on. With the Bay Area as your playground the opportunities both inside and outside of work are endless!
