Walmart is giving approximately 165,000 hourly workers a raise by introducing new leadership roles and “cross-training opportunities.”

The retail giant announced it was introducing a “team-based operating model” in Supercenters, similar to one that has been successful at Sam’s Club over the past year and in Neighborhood Market stores this year.

“We’re investing in new roles and skills training to give us the flexibility to serve customers anytime and anywhere,” Dacona Smith, Walmart U.S. chief operating officer, said in a blog post Thursday. “In turn, associates will have more room for career and pay growth.”

Smith said the pay increases will start in October and take the place of the annual increase employees typically have to wait until February or April to receive.

Smith said the new structure “is built around higher-skilled jobs of the future, and the compensation for those roles reflects that.”

The new salaried and hourly roles come with higher pay and Walmart will also raise pay for some current salaried employees including digital, asset protection and auto care center assistant managers.

“The new wage ranges for the hourly team lead roles start at between $18 and $21 an hour and can go up to $30 an hour in Supercenters,” Smith said. “Through this new, tiered structure for team leads, we’re creating room for pay and career growth while investing in areas like pickup and delivery as customers increasingly turn to those options.”

Smith said Walmart also is investing in some hourly positions including the deli and bakery where minimums are “increasing from $11 an hour to $15 or higher.

“We are re-investing in several ways to provide associates with higher and more consistent base pay,” Smith said. “Likewise, for these select hourly roles, this increase will also take the place of the regular quarterly bonus and become part of their base pay going forward, offering more predictability and more pay in their hourly wages.”
