Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.


Experience and pay tend to be weakly linked for Accountants with Accounts Receivable skills — those with more experience do not necessarily bring in higher earnings. Relatively untried employees who have less than five years' experience make $43K, but folks with five to 10 years under their belts enjoy an appreciably larger median of $48K.
