The federal minimum wage in the United States is currently $7.25. When you're out on the job hunt, looking at what companies pay is critical. Before applying, knowing what potential employers will pay at minimum is crucial information that applicants often simply don't have. We dug into what many major retailers pay at minimum and compiled a list of stores that pay above minimum wage.

Many department stores that pay above minimum wage know that the minimum wage, set federally in 2009, isn't up to snuff with living expenses and inflation. So they try to set their hourly wage to be competitive with rival stores, but also to keeps workers from living in abject poverty. Of course, they don't always get it right - after all, living in California is a bit more expensive than, say, Wyoming - but it's good to know that some stores are not simply paying minimum wage and moving on. 

So take a look at the list of jobs that pay above minimum wage. Be sure to vote on the stores that pay above minimum wage and check out some of our other lists that will earn you more money! If you find out these jobs that pay well, it may end up changing your life!
