CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Wal-Mart is once again West Virginia’s largest private employer.
That is according to WorkForce West Virginia’s list of the 100 largest employers, which was compiled from March 2013 data.
Wal-Mart has been at the top of the list since 1998.
Rounding out the top five on the list, in order, is West Virginia United Health System, Charleston Area Medical Center, Kroger, and Consolidation Coal Company. All
five companies maintained the same ranking in 2012.
Mylan Pharmaceuticals came in at number six, Lowe’s Home Centers is at number seven, St. Mary’s Medical Center at number eight, The Mentor Network number nine and ResCare was placed at number 10 on the list.
Just over one-third of employers on the top 100 list climbed in rank, while nearly the same number of businesses descended in rank. The ranking of 14 employers was unchanged from last year, while 10 employers not present on last year’s top 100 made an appearance on this year’s list.
