The majority of jobs in retail continue to be at the lower end of the wage scale (e.g. Stock Clerks, Sales Associates). However here are some of the jobs that pay over $50,000 a year. Note that compensation packages at this level also tend offer bonuses, plus discounts on merchandise the company sells.

Forecasts staffing needs and develops a recruiting strategy to provide optimal staffing in all areas. May require a bachelor's degree or its equivalent and at least 5 years of experience in the field or in a related area.
