Can someone please tell me what a normal pay is for a job at your local Walmart, Target, Children's Place, ect....I need to be prepared to take a job in a store until I can find one in my line and I want to know what to expect in pay so I know how much I can afford in rent.
Thanks to all.

Christina

That first link has so much information. I am just trying to figure out what it is actually saying though. Is that the annual salary based on 40 hours per week, do you happen to know?

Walmart pays around $8.50-9 an hour for full time employees. Target is about the same. Some retail stores pay even less. Keep in mind this is a right to work state, no retail stores or grocery stores are unionized, and that is part of the reason pay is lower. I'm not saying unions are good are bad, these are just the facts.

It is funny that you say that is the reason for lower pay. Here in RI where the cost of living is considerabley lower, they pay $8-8.50/hour so that is great news to hear. I am in the process of getting myself a part time job here at one of those so that I can try to get my foot in the door down there. I want to be sure to have something to pay the bills immediately when I get down there. Never hurts to have a plan. Thank you so much for the info. I don't mind not being part of the union and the pay sounds surprisingly good.
