If you’re one of the millions of workers affected by the pandemic and you’re looking for a job, you might want to consider Walmart.
The company says 165,000 hourly workers will be receiving a pay raise in order to motivate and empower employees to assist customers better.
Next month, hourly team members will start between $18 and $21 per hour, and pay could even go all the way up to $30 per hour at select supercenters.
We’re investing in new roles and skill training to give us the flexibility to serve customers anytime and anywhere. In turn, associates will have more room for career and pay growth.”
Walmart said it will create “small teams of associates who will be cross-trained and given ownership of the work and their area for everything from in-stock to visul standards.”
The new roles at Supercenters will be store lead (formerly co-manager), coach (formerly assistant manager), and team lead (formerly department manager).
