How Retail Salaries Differ by Department
As part of our continuing coverage of Total Retail’s Salary Benchmark Report, we are taking a look at how retail professionals’ salaries change depending on what department they work in. As a reminder, the Salary Benchmark Report was produced after an online survey was sent to Total Retail’s audience over a two-week period in late June. The survey resulted in 660 responses, which the analysis contained in the report is based upon.This chart shows that general management titles usually mean a better salary for retailers. Of the respondents making $500,000 to $1 million, 71 percent have general management titles. It’s also interesting to not that about 40 percent of those with marketing titles have a salary between $75,001 to $150,000.
Respondents that consider their primary department to be “omnichannel” make more money than other retailers — 66 percent of retailers with an omnichannel title or role make more than $100,001 per year. The respondents that make the least are those whose primary department is stores. Seventy-nine percent of those in that group earn less than $75,000 annually.
