I heard from a business school professor that they make a pretty good living at $125-$150k a year. Is that true?

The Dms possibly. Back in the 90's, WalMart managers were making 40k in my area.

Ya, it would need to be at the DM level to make that kind of scratch. Store managers probabily aren't that well off.

I've always heard that the garbage man makes a pretty good living and the job doesn't require college education. Ooooh!

Does DM or store manager call the shots on where to put non-slip floor mats, etc. in the store to minimize the risk of getting negligence lawsuits? This is where the $ is.

That's why I went to college. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif" border=0>

From a post from a person claiming to be a Wal Mart employee back in 2004. The funny thing is you see a wide variety of claims for these numbers by people who claim to work there or know someone who works there.






Company Statistics

Hourly Positions

Support Mgr my rate is $14.98 but in my store the five supports make between $9.93 to $21.23 an hour. The person making $21.23 has been with company 26 years so he skews the average. Btw we don't follow company policy about discussing rate of pay

Dept Mgr $10.62
Sales Assoc. $8.27
Overnight Stockers $9.29
Cashiers $8.05

The average WalMart hourly pay $9.26

Salary Positions

Regional VP $279,772
District Manager $177,149
Store Manager $89,000
Co-Manager $56,317
Asst. Manager $37,322
Mgmt Trainee $22,371

Keep in mind these are the average pay for Female workers. I figure I would list them because most WalMart employees are female. If your a male probably make about 5-6% more in an hourly position (not much of a gap) or around 44% more in the upper upper position werea regional male makes $440,000 vs the $279,000 a female makes.

One other thing a lot of walmarts hire people in at various rates (the lowest rate possible). In my area the four stores hire in people about the same anywhere from $7.50 To $8.50 an hour for 1st/2nd shift and $8.00 to $9.50 an hour for 3rd shift. However only 90 miles south of us the stores hire people in at $6.00-$6.50 for all three shifts.

The asst. managers are hired in at $32,000 + gap pay. Gap pay is a cost of living adjustment added to your pay depending where you live and is only given to salary managment. In my area its 8%. So a typical person promoted to asst. manager would make $34,560 in my area.

The difference between hourly and salary pay besides overtime rules and gap pay is that currently hourly employees don't "cap" out in other words every year they get a raise where as salary management does and I think its in the $50,000 area. This doesn't include bonus pay though. For example a Co-manger can cap out at $50,000 but will also get his/her bonus check on top of that.

One last fun fact my current store turnover rate is 79%. I'm not sure what the company average is but I'm sure its that high too. Imagine that within one year 79% of the people you work with won't be there.
