THE COLONY, Texas - With jobs plentiful but takers scarce, another company is raising worker pay.
Nebraska Furniture Mart, which has a store in The Colony, is boosting the pay of current and new warehouse employees.
New hires will be paid between $18.58 to $23.13 an hour, depending on experience and qualifications. Current workers get a pay raise of at least 9 percent.
"Nebraska Furniture Mart’s goal is to be the employer of choice in each of our markets," said Megan Berry Barlow, Human Resources Director, in a statement. "Our new higher wages will help us achieve this goal, along with a 7% annual raise potential, a great benefits package and a unique, fun work culture."
Nebraska Furniture Mart has just five stores nationwide but each employs hundreds of people.
