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.
