Derick Dillard, Jill Dillard’s husband, left his job at Walmart — what now for the young family?

Jill and Derick Dillard - Where does he work

Since he’s got a new baby and the fate of 19 Kids and Counting is hanging in the balance, it seems like an unusual time for Jill Dillard’s husband, Derick Dillard, to leave his steady job as a tax accountant at Walmart. But that’s just what he did.

In the wake of revelations about Josh Duggar, Radar Online reached out to Derick via his work email account to ask a few questions. An automated response said Derick is no longer employed at the company’s Arkansas headquarters. It read, “I have recently accepted a position outside of Walmart and am no longer working for the company.”

The move is somewhat surprising considering how Derick praised Walmart for his one-year work anniversary just three months ago.

Before they married, Derick served as a missionary in Nepal and Jill said that was something she always wanted to do. Following a devastating earthquake in the country this spring, some are speculating the couple is planning to go back to Nepal to offer help. However, with a newborn baby, others are questioning whether now is a safe, healthy time for the family to travel abroad.

Time will have to tell what the Dillards have in store…because it’s still unclear if they will return to TLC.
