Working for a big box retailer might just pay off. Walmart recently released some pretty impressive stats in the company’s annual Environmental, Social and Governance Report. And when it comes to compensation, management is where it’s at.

So how much do Walmart’s store managers make? According to the report, leaders in this position make an average of $175,000 per year!


Before you start thinking that these highly-paid managers came from fancy business schools, take a look at some more of Walmart’s statistics. The report also notes that over 75 percent of the company’s management team members started as hourly employees. These motivated managers worked their way up, using the retailer as their own personal training ground.

The average Walmart manager salary well outranks other jobs that you might expect to pay more. Accountants make an average of $70,500 per year, lawyers make an average of $120,910 annually and advertising execs make an average of $132,620, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
