Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For many Administrative Assistants in San Diego, Calif., extensive experience does not lead to significantly more money. Relatively untried employees who have less than five years' experience make $32K, but folks with five to 10 years under their belts enjoy an appreciably larger median of $37K. Administrative Assistants in San Diego with one to two decades of relevant experience report an average salary of approximately $40K. San Diego Administrative Assistants who surpass 20 years on the job report pay that isn't as high as one would expect; the median compensation for this crowd sits around $41K.
