The Walmart greeters announcement was made in a blog post by the company. It said that it will be adding over 9,000 greeters to its more than 5,000 locations. The decision was made after it launched a pilot program last year to test greeters and a new position.

The new Walmart greeters position introduced by WMT is called "customer host." This role has the employee wearing a yellow jacket to help them stand out. Their services include helping customers and deterring shoplifters.

"Greeters are a big part of our company and culture, and that's why in the majority of our U.S. stores we will continue to rely on them to be the helpful first face customers see," Walmart said in its blog post.
