As it turns out, Walmart only discloses that information upon job interview. However, according to Walmart employee forums, Walmart pays bi-weekly on Thursdays.
A job at Walmart means competitive pay for all associates. Every year, the company promotes 160,000 associates to jobs with higher pay and more responsibility and last year Walmart converted more than 150,000 associates from part-time to full-time.
On Feb. 20, 2016, the company will implement one of the largest single-day, private-sector pay increases ever, benefiting more than 1.1 million hourly associates. The changes taking effect include:
All associates hired before Jan. 1, 2016 will earn at least $10/hour.
New entry-level associates will continue to start at $9/hour and move to at least $10/hour after successfully completing the company’s new retail skills and training program known as Pathways.
Associates already earning more than $10/hour will receive an annual pay increase in February rather than waiting until their anniversary date.
Walmart is raising the starting rate of its non-entry level hourly pay bands. Anyone earning below the new minimum will automatically move up to the new minimum.
Associates at or above their pay band maximum will receive a one-time lump sum payment equal to 2 percent of their annual pay.
When these changes go into effect, Walmart’s average full-time hourly wage will be $13.38/hour. The average part-time hourly wage will be $10.58/hour.
