Walmart to raise annual wages for US store managers
Walmart has implemented a substantial pay increase for its managers in 2024, marking the first such raise in a decade. The average salary for a Walmart manager is now $128,000 per year, following a 9% raise from the previous average of $117,000. The company disclosed that the prior pay range for managers was $65,000–$170,000, and the new range is $90,000–$170,000.
This adjustment is part of Walmart’s broader strategy, with changes to the bonus program emphasizing profitability. Managers who meet all targets can now receive bonuses of up to 200% of their base salary. The announcement reflects a shift in incentive structures to align with corporate objectives.
While the pay raise is noteworthy, the decade-long gap since the last increase raises questions about the desirability of managing a Walmart. Nevertheless, the potential earnings, especially with the revised bonus structure, present a lucrative opportunity for managers within the company.
Walmart’s proactive stance on compensation and performance incentives showcases its commitment to talent retention and overall corporate success. These changes may impact the perception of managerial roles at Walmart and contribute to the company’s evolving workforce strategy.
