The one and only industry I am familiar with is the restaurant industry. They promote from within, hourly to salary, very quickly. I was serving part time at Olive Garden this summer and was offered management training before I had been there two months.

They only give evaluations and raises once per year, and the standard is 3%. My husband is a general manager for Logan's, he just signed on with them. He was not a promote from within, he has been in management for a long time, but his starting salary was in the ballpark of just over 60 with a 14k bonus potential each year. Bonus potential is a big part of restaurant salary, I'm not sure if that is the case for retail.
Mama to Henry (01.07), Catherine (09.11), Audrey (04.14), Clare (09.15) and our newest addition, coming July 2017!
