The retail and fast-food industries employ more people than any other sector.

Glassdoor.com helped us to compile the companies that paid the best hourly wages in the industry over the past year.

We asked the job-review site to consider retail companies. They included grocery, apparel, big-box, and department stores.

For the purpose of the report, managerial and senior leader roles were excluded.
