Andrew Chamberlain, chief economist at Glassdoor, is also eyeing another profession that he thinks could be joining wage-growth trend.

"We are closely watching retail," he says in the report. "While the holiday season is months away, retailers are making preparations to fill short-term positions in time for the holiday buying rush. Jobs typically associated with this seasonal swing in hiring, including cashiers and warehouse jobs, are seeing above-average pay growth."
