When you think about jobs that pay six-figure or higher, you might think of jobs in tech or investment banking. But other fields — and some surprising companies — are also offering high-paying salaries.

In-N-Out store manager

For instance, Eat This Not That reported that a store manager at a well-known chain can earn $180,000. Lynsi Snyder, president and owner of In-N-Out and granddaughter of founders Harry and Esther Snyder, said in the book, “The Ins-N-Outs of In-N-Out Burger: The Inside Story of California’s First Drive-Thru and How It Became a Beloved Cultural Icon.”

In her book, Snyder said that In-N-Out strongly values loyalty to the company and likes to reward workers for their commitment.

“Offering the highest wages in the industry is one way we attract the best,” she wrote, according to Eat His Not That.

UPS driver

In July, UPS announced that full-time drivers will make around $170,000 in annual pay and benefits as part of a new labor contract.

“When you look at total compensation, by the end of the new contract, the average UPS full-time driver will make about $170,000 annually in pay and benefits,” CEO Carol Tome said in an earnings call, according to the transcript.

“And for all part-time union employees already working at UPS, by the end of this contract, they will be making at least $25.75 per hour while receiving full healthcare and pension benefits. In fact, our part-timers are among only 7% of all U.S. part-time workers in the private sector to enjoy these benefits.”
