MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Over 4,000 Walmart employees in the Myrtle Beach and Florence area received a share of more than $3.4 million in cash bonuses, based on their stores’ performance in the fourth quarter. 

Over 850,000 associates across the nation received a share of $157 million, which was included in their March 9 paychecks, according to a news release from a public relations firm representing the company.

“Our associates’ hard work makes the difference in our stores’ performance,” said Sean Real, regional manager of Walmart’s South Carolina stores. “The quarterly bonus is one way we’re thanking our associates and sharing in the success together.”
