  • Walmart pays systems engineering managers up to $200,000, per a new Wall Street Journal report.

  • WSJ analyzed Walmart pay in Colorado, where firms are required to share salaries on job listings.

  • A 2020 Insider analysis of Walmart pay for foreign workers showed similar salary ranges.

Walmart pays some engineers up to $200,000 - at least in Colorado.

To determine how much Walmart pays employees, the Wall Street Journal analyzed 5,000 job offers at major companies posted in the state between August and October, after Colorado began mandating employers disclose hourly or salary compensation or range in all job postings. The state's legislators passed the law to ensure equal pay for equal work.

Though some companies stopped hiring workers in Colorado to bypass sharing salary information on job listings, corporations like Walmart started disclosing pay for certain positions.

Walmart's highest salary on a job offer was for a systems engineering manager: The job's minimum base pay was $80,000, the maximum was $200,000, according to the Journal's analysis.

Other high-paying jobs at Walmart, according to the analysis, included a pharmacist manager ($166,400 maximum base pay), a staff pharmacist ($153,920 maximum base pay), and a membership representative ($74,000 maximum base pay).

Walmart also offered high hourly wages for some positions in Colorado, the WSJ found. Certain staff pharmacists could earn up to $74 an hour, and maintenance and custodial workers up to $32 an hour.

The wages in Colorado job postings followed similar patterns to Insider's analysis of Walmart's 2020 disclosures made to the US Office of Foreign Labor Certification for salaries paid to permanent and temporary foreign workers.

Insider found Walmart paid principal software engineers $184,369 on average and senior managers for software engineers up to $213,116.

As competitors like Amazon and Target adopted a minimum hourly wage of $15, Walmart has made incremental increases. In March, Walmart announced a raise for 425,000 associates that would increase pay to between $13 and $19 an hour. In September, it raised its minimum wage across the board to $12 an hour.

Walmart was not immediately available for additional comment.
