Every month, job review site Glassdoor sifts through its mountains of data to see which occupations enjoyed the biggest wage increases.

Paychecks for retail roles, including store managers, cashiers, and more, were on the rise in October as companies gear up for the holiday shopping season.

“We are seeing increased demand for roles that serve as the logistical foundation for back-end operations for online retail,” said Glassdoor’s chief economist Andrew Chamberlain. “We anticipate this will continue to grow over the coming months, fueled by the upcoming holiday season and as Amazon and Walmart expand their online retail presence.”

While the data isn’t official — government numbers on employment and wages are scheduled to come from the Bureau of Labor Statistics in its monthly jobs report on Friday — the results provide some insight into which fields saw wage growth, and how much their paychecks grew.

Here are the jobs which saw the biggest raises last month:
