Walmart Adds Bonus For Associates

Walmart plans to provide another special cash bonus for all U.S. hourly associates to recognize them for their many contributions to communities across the country during the pandemic.

This includes hourly associates in stores, clubs, supply chain and offices, drivers, and assistant managers in stores and clubs. The bonus will be $300 for full-time hourly associates and $150 for part-time hourly and temporary associates, and will add up to more than $390 million. Associates must be employed by the company as of June 5 to qualify, and it will pay out on June 25.

“Walmart and Sam’s Club associates continue to do remarkable work, and it’s important we reward and appreciate them,” said John Furner, president and CEO of Walmart U.S. “All across the country, they’re providing Americans with the food, medicine and supplies they need, while going above and beyond the normal scope of their jobs, diligently sanitizing their facilities, making customers and members feel safe and welcome, and handling difficult situations with professionalism and grace.”

With the associate bonus of $390 million, Walmart has committed more than $935 million in bonuses for associates so far this year. A first cash bonus, adding up to $365 million, was issued for all U.S. hourly associates in stores, clubs, supply chain and offices on April 2. This bonus was also $300 for full-time hourly associates and $150 for part-time hourly associates. Plus, an early payout of a first quarter bonus added up to $180 million.
