Walmart's global workforce, boosted by its massive international presence with 900,000 of its 2.2 million employees based outside the U.S., is more than four-times larger than any other U.S.-based company.
A new analysis by 24/7 Wall St of the largest global workforces of U.S. companies shows that each of the 10 largest companies have a workforce larger than 300,000 people.
And while many of the companies provide only low-skill service jobs -- mostly fast food and retailers -- the other companies on the list are on the opposite end of the spectrum -- technology companies employing high-skill workers. There isn't much in the middle.
Here are the top 10 largest employers from U.S. companies:
